Shah Rukh Khan is the King who has ruled our hearts with amazing performances for over 2 decades. The actor was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s Zero where he played a dwarf. While he was lauded for his performance, the film didn’t fare well at the box office and since then, SRK hasn’t featured in any film. Now, here is some interesting news – he may soon be seen in South director, Atlee’s next.
SRK has been having extensive talks with Atlee. If all goes well, SRK will be doing his next film with him.
Says a source,
“Shah Rukh Khan has been reading many scripts. He has been having intense interactions with Ali Abbas Zafar but that film is not happening right now for some reason. Ali too has got busy with his web series Tandav, starring Saif Ali Khan. On the other hand, Atlee’s film with superstar Vijay- Bigil, is expected to release in some time. The director was to do another film with Vijay in December but again, this project is not happening at the moment. Atlee’s dates, hence, are free from December.”
The source continues,
“Atlee’s film with Shah Rukh Khan is an original flick and not a remake of the filmmaker’s earlier films like Mersal or Theri. Atlee wrote the script sometime back and it’ll be a complete massy entertainer, full of action. SRK loved the premise and trusts Atlee’s vision. Hence, Shah Rukh Khan should sign this film for sure, if all goes well.”
The source spills more details,
“This film will be produced by SRK’s production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. Atlee, moreover, will be paid Rs. 30 crore if this project materializes.”
Signing off The source exclaims,
“If this film gets finalized, it’ll be something to watch out for. Shah Rukh Khan suits the part and Atlee would surely present him in a great avatar. All those who hinted that SRK is finished after Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero’s twin debacles will have to eat their words!”
A hunch that Shah Rukh Khan will team up with Atlee became news when SRK invited the filmmaker for an IPL match played by his team Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai. Speculations were about King Khan doing a cameo in Bigil.
A few days back, Shah Rukh Khan shared the trailer of Bigil on Twitter and had called it ‘Chak De India on steroids’.
