Giridih, April 27: His acting prowess and charisma have helped him earn billions of fans across the world. Now, it is the turn of a 23-year-old to impress Shah Rukh Khan.

Vidyut Sethi, hailing from Giridih, has built a website www.lovesrk.com for the fans of the Bollywood superstar in barely 10 days.

The site offers four broad sections — fan’s messages, best wishes for Kolkata Knight Riders, what do you think about Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain and I wish SRK had acted in this film.

“Shah Rukh is doing enough for his fans and now for the people of Calcutta through Knight Riders. So we planned to praise him in this manner,” Vidyut told The Telegraph over the telephone from Calcutta.

What is interesting is that Vidyut is not a professional web page designer, but pursuing chartered accountancy from Calcutta. The lad, who passed his Class X from Carmel School, Giridih, has completed his BCom from Bhawanipur College, Calcutta.

The site not only contains news on the Bollywood king and his movies. The most interesting segment is where fans wish in which films Shah Rukh should have acted in place of other actors.

In this section, some fans not only wished that Shah Rukh should have been in Fanaa and Jaaneman in place of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, but some even wished he worked in Hollywood flicks like Speed and don the garb of James Bond and Spiderman as well.

“We started working on the site on April 15 and launched it on April 25. In two days, thousands of Shah Rukh fans have visited the site, scribbling messages for King Khan,” he added.

Vidyut has also conduc- ted a poll on whether Shah Rukh is best as an actor, a film producer, the owner of Knight Riders or as host of Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain.

These days, film stars have started their own blogs for their fans, which include the likes of Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan.

“My wish is that Shah Rukh uses my website to blog to interact with his fans,” the lad said. Vidyut’s friends, who helped him build the site, gave full credit to him and did not wish to be named on the site.

Vidyut had also created two other sites, www.life27.com and www.mehandi27.com, on the best perso- nality of a particular city and on mehendi designs, respectively. While the unique concept behind www.life27.com has been well appre- ciated, www.mehandi27. com has been rated among the top 10 best sites on mehendi designs across the world.
