After working with Kangna Ranaut in ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ and its sequel, filmmaker Aanand L Rai is set to work with none other than Shah Rukh Khan in his next.
Its already been widely reported that the two have been planning to work together but this time it seems like Khan will listen to Rai’s narration once he wraps up ‘Dilwale’.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “Yes Aanand has met and discussed a story with Shah Rukh which he liked, immensely. This film will definitely be made, but the paperwork is yet to be completed.” May be that’s the reason why none of the parties, and this includes the director, wish to comment on the subject till the first week of September. However, according to the source, the film will go on the floors next year, after Shah Rukh finishes Rahul Dholakia’s Raees and Maneesh Sharma’s Fan. It will be produced under Shah Rukh Khan’s banner and according to the buzz, he’s playing a dwarf in the film. However, on this the source is hesitant to clarify, “There is no clarity on the role yet.”
Rai is currently working on his next ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’, which stars Abhay Deol and Diana Penty.
