Shah Rukh Khan, the Badshah of Bollywood, is expected to star in a movie directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
After the release of Zero, there was no word from Shah Rukh Khan about his next project.
He was said to be a part of Rakesh Sharma’s biopic Saare Jahan Se Achcha, but he later quit the project.
A source, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “People have been waiting for Shah Rukh to announce his next project after Zero. Shah Rukh and Hirani have been meeting since a few months to discuss this. It’s almost finalised. Hirani will float his own banner and will not [work] with Vidhu Vinod Chopra, as has been the norm. It’s a romantic drama with a strong emotional cord running through; it’s right up SRK’s alley (sic.)”
This is not the first time Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan tried to collaborate for a movie. Previously, Shah Rukh Khan was finalised to play the role of Munna Bhai in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., a role which was later taken up by Sanjay Dutt.
Later, Rajkumar Hirani again approached Shah Rukh Khan to feature in 3 Idiots, but unfortunately, it did not materialise, following which, Aamir Khan was signed for the role.
However, no official announcement regarding Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani working together has been made yet.
Stay tuned for further updates.
