"I feel every day with Shah Rukh is a discovery," says the screenplay writer of Om Shanti Om, Mushtaq Sheikh. His book The Making of Om Shanti Om was launched amidst grand fanfare in Mumbai on Monday. Having known SRK for the last 12 years–as a journalist, friend, biographer (his book Still Reading Khan is a detailed account of Khan’s personality and life) and now as a close associate–Sheikh feels, "If Shah Rukh trusts, then he trusts completely."

Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om is busy tickling a sense of deja vu among audiences worldwide. This ode to the 70s, embellished with colours of life and rocking superstar six pack abs, has had a pied piper effect.

How did Sheikh chronicle such a film? "Those who’ve liked OSO will like the book. There are lots of glamorous photographs taken by German photographer Jochen Mang. There are a lot of on-location shots and candid shots,” says Sheikh. “It’s a very in-your-face book. There’s a circus happening, Bollywood ishtyle. It is not as heavy as Still Reading Khan. You can take it to bed."
