After producing a beautiful film like Kamyaab, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to produce his next – a film based on a real story.
His next production will be based on the Muzaffarpur shelter mass abuse of 2018. The film is expected to go on floors in July.
It will be directed by Pulkit, who has previously helmed a show on Subhas Chandra Bose and the 2017 film, Maroon. According to a source of a leading daily, Pulkit has also written the script.
“He has done extensive research for the film, which will have a journalist as the protagonist and is expected to roll in July. The cast will be finalised shortly,” informs the source.
The Muzaffarpur case came to light when the Tata Institute of Social Sciences conducted a social audit of shelters across Bihar.
Their report, which highlighted sexual abuse of girls at a Muzaffarpur short-stay home run by the NGO ‘Seva Sankalp Evam Vikas Samiti’, prompted an FIR, registered on May 31, 2018. The girls were rescued and shifted to Madhubani, Patna and Mokama.
Meanwhile, speculation is rife that SRK will announce his next as an actor soon— he has reportedly liked scripts by Atlee and Raj Nidimoru-Krishna DK.
The actor also has an extended cameo in the Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer Brahmastra. He shot for the film in November last year. Recently, he came on-board as a producer on Hardik Mehta’s Kaamyaab.
