Bollywood Badmash Shah Rukh Khan is one of the actors who has not made his debut on OTT platforms yet. Last year, he had teased his OTT debut with Hotstar by sharing some promotional videos. No reason came out why he didn’t make his debut yet but now we all know the reason, and the reason is he is going to launch his own OTT platform with the name SRK+.
The announcements for this project were put on hold as his son Aryan Khan got involved in a lawful fight. Now finally, the project has been announced, his fans can’t keep calm. Bringing to his social media handles, the superstar shared a poster of him with his thumbs up and ‘SRK+ Coming Soon’ written on it. He captioned the post as, “Kuch kuch hone wala hai, OTT ki duniya mein.” Take a look:

Yet, it appears like SRK+ is an OTT app the actor is going to launch as his industry friends Salman Khan and Anurag Kashyap congratulated him for his OTT platform.
Salman wrote, “Aaj ki party teri taraf se @iamsrk. Congrats on your new OTT app, SRK+” while Anurag tweeted, “Dream come true! Collaborating with @iamsrk on his new OTT app, SRK+ “
By seeing Anurag Kashyap’s post we can assume that he is all set to collaborate with SRK on this project. He captioned the post as, “Dream come true! Collaborating with @iamsrk on his new OTT app, SRK+”
Last year, SRK indicated his OTT debut with a new funny promo video. In the video, Shah Rukh Khan can be seen welcoming his fans from Mannat, whereas actor Rajesh Jais looks a bit nervous. He then says that he is not sure whether his fan base will stay the same in the future.
As SRK enquires what he means, he describes that all other stars have their shows on Disney+ Hotstar. Shah Rukh then says, “Accha? Kaun baaki sab (Really? Who all)? to which Rajesh anointed a few actors including Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, and Sanjay Dutt. A visibly nervous SRK asked again whether everyone is on Hotstar? Rajesh then replied, “Matlab sab toh nahi hai (Not everyone is there).”
This made Shah Rukh ask who is yet to debut on Hotstar and Rajesh said, “Sir, aap (Sir you).”
The promo concluded with a voiceover that said, “Sabse bade stars Disney+ Hotstar pe sab hai siwaye Shah Rukh ke (All the big stars are on Disney+ Hotstar except Shah Rukh).” The words “to be continued” were also written on the video as it came to an end, suggesting that the actor has something under the wraps.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan also revealed the date of his much-anticipated film Pathaan. Along with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, the film will hit theatres on January 26, 2023.
