Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most celebrated actors in Bollywood. Unfortunately, over the last few years, his films have failed to create any magic at the box-office. The actors’ last film ‘Zero’ released in 2018 and ever since then he is yet to announce his next project. Obviously, his fans are dying to know when they will get to see him on the silver screen again but looks like it will still take some time.
Reportedly, Shah has given his nod to filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani‘s film. But apparently its the director who has asked the superstar to refrain from making any announcement regarding their project.
Over the last few months, speculations are rife surrounding Shah Rukh’s next. While some reports claim that he will be working with South director Atlee Kumar, others state that he will be seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s next. Well, in one of his recent ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Twitter. Shah Rukh did hint at working with Hirani. So you must be wondering what’s stopping him from making the announcement?
According to Rajeev Masand’s column in the Open Magazine, Hirani doesn’t want SRK to make any announcement until the script is locked. The report stated that apparently, Hirani had offered the superstar a two-hero project with Salman Khan but he insisted on doing only solo-hero films. And that has resulted in Hirani and his writer Abhijat Joshi burning the midnight oil to finalise the script. They are rigorously working on the draft and taking the actor’s inputs.
So until they have actually landed their final draft, Hirani wants Shah Rukh to keep things under wraps. Earlier talking about the same film, a source close to the development, was quoted saying in Bollywood Hungama as, “Rajkumar Hirani Productions and Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment will co-produce the SRK starrer. Hirani’s regular writer Parijat Joshi will script the film which is about immigration. It will be a light-hearted film. But would have a deep dramatic core to it. Most importantly, it is something Shah Rukh has not done before.”
