There have been rumours galore about Shah Rukh Khan’s role in ‘Thalapathy 63’, helmed by Atlee Kumar. While many reports suggest the role is a cameo, it seems he may have an actual role in the forthcoming film.
“SRK has a prominent character that he’s playing in Thalapathy 63. It’s not like his other cameos. In fact, he is the main villain who comes in the picture only towards the climax. He has a good 15 minutes odd role, fighting Vijay,” stated a source, as quoted by Filmfare.
The insider went on to add, “The makers wanted a leading face from the Hindi film industry to shoot for the role and when Atlee approached Shah Rukh for it, he agreed on principle to do it. It’s a four-five day shoot and the team is figuring whether to film the scenes in Chennai or in Mumbai itself.”
Recently, Jackie Shroff was asked whether Khan would be involved in the film but he didn’t confirm nor deny anything.
