    SRK's opus likely to be out next year

    Sun, Dec 11 2011 20:27 IST

    Weighing an incredible 37 kg, running up to 800 pages and consisting of exclusive content including fascinating extracts from Shahrukh Khan's personal diary, "King Khan - The Official Opus of Shah Rukh Khan" is likely to be released next year.
    "I am overwhelmed by the honour. Though there have been books written about me, but the magnificence of this book simply stands out. I am thankful to the group for choosing me. My opus will surely get me closer to my fans," Khan said signing the first copy of his official opus.
    The Bollywood megastar joins the league of iconic names in the opus collection, including Sachin Tendulkar, Michael Jackson, Manchester United FC, Formula 1 and Ferrari.

    He is the second Indian to have this luxury, large-format work dedicated to him.
    Announced by Britain-based Opus Media Group, the Opus will narrate the journey of the star through rare pictures and extracts from his personal diary.
    The opus will reveal the incredible passion, intellectual drive, constant ambition and charming personality of Khan.
    The leather-bound publication will weigh an incredible 37 kg, running up to 800 pages and consisting of exclusive, newly-commissioned content that will make this work a must-have for every fan.
    "On behalf of the entire Opus team, we are immensely honoured to be given such a wonderful opportunity to tell Khan's story in an opus. Khan continues to lead the way creatively and we hope to rise to the challenge in telling his story in a new, diverse and unprecedented style through the King Khan Opus," said Opus Media Group CEO Karl Fowler.
    Said Eszter Karpati, editor of "King Khan - The Official Opus of Shah Rukh Khan": Eight hundred pages of an Opus allow for plenty of storytelling. But when we were planning the King Khan Opus, it was a case of how can we possibly fit everything in."
    The Opus will be semi-autobiographical as Khan will contribute much of the exclusive content himself, including fascinating extracts from his personal diary that he has kept for over 20 years.
    Structured around 13 themed chapters, the editorial content will include a detailed filmography plus a light-hearted cinematic intermission in which people can gain an insight into his on and off screen persona and the colour and flavour of Bollywood.
    Each marquee edition of the Opus will be personally signed Khan and presented as a strictly limited edition worldwide.
    "King Khan - The Official Opus of Shah Rukh Khan" will also be offered as a DVD as well as a downloadable iTunes App designed for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, and Android platforms.

    "At Kraken Opus, our mission is to produce definitive publications featuring the finest writers, stunning images displayed on an epic scale and presented in a beautifully-designed, luxury format.
    Every Opus is special, a piece of art in itself. In the art world the value of an original, or print, is greatly enhanced by the signature of the artist. At Kraken Opus we have made it our mission to enhance each work with the signatures of the most important 'artists' involved – the truly iconic individuals in their respective fields." from website

    This is a Luxury Book company, these are one of a kind books, like buying a piece of art......it will be very expensive and a collector's item. For instance Michael Jackson is sold out. Unfortunately most will not be able to aford it, me included. I think they actually ask people to do it......not sure how it works.

    Here is their website, http://www.krakenopus.com/ and yes SRK is one the front page along with others....seems like this was mentioned before, because I remember going to their site......only reason would of been for him.

    i dont believe that SRK would write this book that he talked so much about so a group of people only can afford it
    it might get republished in a cheaper publishing house or sth.. but lets not feel sad that we might not be able to afford it cause we might just can :)

    I feel the same, think that this company will make a one of a kind book, and SRK will still do his bio himself at a later date.......he has been working on it forever....:)
