Period dramas with lavish sets have belonged to directors like Ashutosh Gowariker and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. And making eternal love stories has been Aditya Chopra’s genre.
However, looks like the YRF head honcho is now planning to go out of his way and experiment!
One hears that Aditya Chopra’s next would be a period drama that would star Shah Rukh Khan in the lead as a warrior. Yes, this one will be something completely different from the movies the two have done together (‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, ‘Mohabbatein’ and ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’).
Reportedly, Aditya will start with his share of research and pre-production as soon as he gets done with the Ranveer Singh-Vaani Kapoor starrer ‘Befikre’; and aims to take the film on-floors during the latter half of 2017.
