Shah Rukh Khan’s next project has now become a mystery. The actor was last seen in Zero (2018). Fans kept waiting on several occasions hoping for an announcement, but nothing came through. Given the superstar tag, SRK had been offered as many as 50 films interestingly he has shown interest in 20 of them. Reportedly, he seems to have finalized 4 out of them, the big names included Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan. Below is the scoop you need about it.
Starting with the 4 probable projects, SRK has said to have signed Siddharth Anand’s Pathan already. Furthermore, it seems likely as John Abraham and Deepika Padukone’s name has also surfaced as co-stars. Apart from that, Rajkumar Hirani, Atlee Kumar and Raj & DK are the other filmmakers that the actor has zeroed down upon.
As per the recent report by Bollywood Hungama, the 20 projects were all huge. It began with Madhur Bhandarkar’s action film. The project is titled ‘Inspector Ghalib’ and Shah Rukh Khan reportedly even liked the script. However, he wasn’t sure if the director could pull of that genre, so gave it a pass. Apart from that, Sanjay Leela Bhansali too approached him with Sahir Ludhianvi biopic. But since long, rumours have been rife that the superstar wants to sign a commercial film. So, he dumped the biopic idea as he thought it was ‘too risky.’
Everyone knows about Rakesh Sharma biopic. After the box office dud Zero proved out to be, Shah Rukh Khan decided not to take a risk with another space film. His best friend Salman Khan also went to him with Aayush Sharma’s Guns Of North. As he wanted to play a more central character, he politely said no to that as well. “Back then, the cop was more of an extended cameo, and that’s definitely not what SRK was looking for,” reveals a source close to the development.
Some other scripts included Ali Abbas Zafar’s Mr. India reboot, Kabir Khan and Karan Johar’s films. “If he is being so careful and cautious, imagine the power and quality of the stories that have excited him. There is no doubt that all his four films will set the box-office on fire like never before, and he will be back to fight for the top spot,” adds the source.
Well, clearly, the box office will be set on a storm. We certainly can’t wait for Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming blockbusters. How about you?
