Speculation surrounding Shah Rukh Khan’s next film has been doing the rounds for a number of months, with reports now suggesting that the superstar will make his comeback in Siddharth Anand’s next film, helmed by Yash Raj Films.
For months, it was reported that Khan would be ending his two-year hiatus with Rajkumar Hirani’s social comedy about immigration but this now seems to be untrue, according to Mid-Day.
A source told the publication, “Given the current global crisis, Hirani’s team could not procure the permission to shoot in Canada. So, the director will have to kick off the shoot at a later date. In the meantime, Shah Rukh is considering returning to the big screen with Siddharth’s action-drama. After the raging success of War, Yash Raj Films is keen that he helm another tentpole movie. The film will be announced on Yash Chopra’s birth anniversary, September 27, and the superstar is expected to begin shooting in October tentatively.”
As BizAsiaLive.com reported earlier, Khan could be paired opposite Deepika Padukone in Anand’s film.
