Shahrukh Khan who himself is a fan of superhero Batman, was recently compared to the character Lex Luthor from the latest film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by director Bejoy Nambiar.
Luthor played by Jesse Eisenberg is a sophisticated young businessman and hereditary CEO of LexCorp, who is fixated on defeating his archenemy Superman. The acclaimed Bollywood director Bejoy took to his Twitter handle and wrote,
“Did anyone else think Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor was Shah Rukh from ‘Darr’ and ‘Baazigar.” SRK replied as “Now I will have to watch it for Lex also. Hm? Will ask my kids they are watching it tonight.”
Batman V Superman was released on 25th March and has done terrific business in India.
