Actor Shah Rukh Khan is all set to star in Aanand L. Rai’s dwarf film. For this challenging project, the director is cashing high on technology. Reportedly, Aanand will get Brad Pitt starrer The Curious Case of Benjamin Button‘s VFX team on board to work on this film.
Since SRK will play a dwarf in the film, it demands highly advanced visual effects. In a recent interview, SRK said that if his team gets the VFX right in Aanand’s film, it would be path-breaking for the industry.
A source close to the project said, “Yes, work on SRK’s look has already started and Anand will invest a lot of time with Khan’s VFX team as well. The pre-production will take a lot of time but they have enough time before the film goes on floors.”
The film is expected to go on floors by the end of 2016. The film is also said to have two heroines. Katrina Kaif is in contention to play one of the leading ladies but nothing is confirmed yet.
The film is currently slated to release on Christmas 2017.
