Billu - 2009
Plot: Based on the story of friendship between Krishna and Sudama.
Story: Based in Budbuda, Uttar Pradesh, Billu Vilas Pardesi barely makes a living as a barber. His wife, Bindiya, looks after the household, and his children, Gunja and Ronak, are on the verge of being expelled from Gyaan Bharti Vidyalay Higher Secondary School due to non-payment of fees. Then everything changes when Bollywood actor Sahir Khan makes an appearance to film a movie in the town. Rumors spread that Billu is Sahirs close friends, and he becomes a celebrity virtually overnight. His shop gets donations and clientèle, and the school decides to educate his children for free. The trouble begins when townsfolk want to meet with Sahir but Billu is unable to contact him.
Did you know: The song "You Get Me Rockin & Reeling" was originally with most of the vocals sung by Neeraj Shridhar. However, Shah Rukh Khan wanted more female presence in the song, being a love ballad between him and Priyanka Chopra and asked Pritam Chakraborty to re-record the track with more lines sung by Dominique Cerejo.
