There has been talk about an ongoing conversation between Shah Rukh Khan and filmmaker Aanand L Rai for the latter’s next film for some time. With Khan admitting that he is in conversation, Rai has now confirmed that he is “delighted” that Khan has agreed to be a part of the film.
“He is a gutsy actor. He always takes challenges. It is a delight to have him in the film. We both have liking for each other. We want to work together and we are on that process. Shah Rukh is a very intelligent man. He makes you feel so important and responsible so it is fun to work with him. He was very happy to hear the story,” said Rai to PTI.
He continued, “It (story) sounds it is just about dwarf but it is much more than that. It is a much taller film. It is a very entertaining and interesting love story. I will be fool if I have Shah Rukh Khan in my film and have no romance and songs”.
No doubt many will be excited about the prospect of seeing Khan in this out-of-the-box role. The leading lady is yet to be finalised.
