Mumbai, Jul 5: Shah Rukh Khan, who took the small screen route to filmdom and stardom, has reached out to Amitabh Bachchan to say that he’s awaiting the launch of “Yudh”, which marks the Bollywood megastar’s debut in the fiction space on TV. SRK is sure the show will be “pathbreaking”.
“@SrBachchan waiting for Yudh. Am sure it will be path breaking as all your other endeavours have been,” Shah Rukh posted to Big B on Twitter Saturday.
