Yes, it's finally happening! One of Bollywood's talented film-maker will be collaborating with B-town's Baadshah for his most ambitious project. Aanand L. Rai has finally confirmed that his next film stars Shah Rukh Khan.
A leading daily quoted Rai saying, "Film with Khan saab is my most ambitious project because he is the main casting of the film. I don’t think there is anyone who can play the character better than him. I am fortunate I got Shah Rukh Khan for this film."
The director-producer is currently working on the script and hopes to start the film by the end of the year. “Right now the work is going on the story. I am totally in sync with Khaan saab, we are in touch. I am writing a story which we all should be proud of. We hope to start the film by the end of the year.”
Shah Rukh will be seen playing a dwarf in the movie, but the filmmaker says there’s more to his character than being a short man. “I am taking my time on the story… Of course, there is something… (The news of Shah Rukh playing a dwarf). It is there but this aspect also has a lot of details which I don’t want to reveal right now. People are thinking it is a film about a short man but I will say it has a very tall story. It is a challenging, entertaining story. As an actor, it is a challenging role for him. As a maker, it is an important film for me. It will be fun raising the bar and when you finally get Shah Rukh Khan, you wouldn't want to lose the opportunity.”
Wow..we are way to excited about this film!
