Khan keen to revive stalled project in RAK
Shah Rukh Khan Boulevard, the Dh8 billion luxury property development associated with the Bollywood superstar on Dana Island off Ras Al Khaimah, is currently on hold, the actor has revealed to Emirates Business.
Emirates Business reported in December 2008 that the project had hit the delay snag.
Khan, 44, who is currently in Abu Dhabi promoting his film, My Name is Khan which is out in cinemas today, added that despite his contract running out, he would like to continue with the project.
"To be honest, it kind of fell through at that point in time," he told this paper.
"You know, I would actually like to spend some time to go there after the film's release and meet His Highness [Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah] and kind of tell him that yes, my contract is over, but I feel it is one of the few things that I started and haven't seen its completion, so I would like to go back and tell them that I am still available if there is anything to be done.
"Because I would like it to be; and times will change and become better, so whatever service I can provide I will offer.
"It's never always about just the money part that you make – I think it's just one of those things we never foresaw. Nobody foresaw. I would like to continue on the project, but it is definitely on hold right now."
At the time of launch of the project, Shah Rukh Khan Boulevard was touted as an extension of Khan's home, where the star is actively involved in, from start to finish, contributing extensively to the conceptualisation and design of the residential complex that bears his name and is expected to have a home in it.
