Speculation is rife that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are being considered for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next huge project.
If the news turns out to be true, it’ll be one of the biggest casting coups in recent years. While, the two Khans have appeared on television in film cameos recently, no one has been able to convince them to appear in a full-fledged film.
A source told Mid-Day, “Salman and Shah Rukh will be reuniting on screen for a two-hero film that will be directed by Bhansali. A family drama about friend-turned-foes, the film will be along the lines of the Dilip Kumar-Raj Kumar starrer Saudagar (1991) and will see them share equal footage. The superstars have always been keen on doing a movie together and Bhansali’s film seemed to be the perfect opportunity. They have agreed to it in principle, but Bhansali might take as long as nine months to complete the final draft. If everything goes according to plan, the project may roll mid-next year.”
A source close to Bhansali told the publication, “He hasn’t started casting yet. He will approach stars only after he finalises his script.”
