Rumours have been doing the rounds that Shah Rukh Khan will begin working on Rakesh Sharma’s biopic after he completes ‘Zero’ in the coming weeks, however latest reports suggest that its actually Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next, Khan will commit to as his immediate project.

A source told Mid-Day, “Not many know that Shah Rukh and Bhansali have been in talks for long. During a recent meeting, the director narrated his script to him. It is a fictional love story with a period setting. While Shah Rukh has given his nod in principle, the project is facing a road block by way of its female lead.

Bhansali is keen for the project to go on the floors later this year, with the Sharma biopic called ‘Salute’ starting next January.
