Despite Shah Rukh Khan making no public mention about any upcoming flicks, rumors are doing rounds about his upcoming projects. At first, it was said that King Khan might play the male lead in Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming directorial.
As per a Mid Day report,
“Shah Rukh and Hirani have been meeting for a few months to discuss this. It’s almost finalised. It’s a romantic drama with a strong emotional cord running through; it’s right up SRK’s alley.“
Then a Pinkvilla report, suggested SRK is in advanced stages of discussion with filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala for a flick and if things fall into place, this will be their first collaboration ever.
A source close to the portal revealed,
“Sajid and Shah Rukh had been discussing making a film for quite some time. Their collaboration has been on the cards and now, it’s mostly happening. Sajid has offered LOL Land of Lungi to Shah Rukh Khan. It’s a masala actioner that’s a remake of Ajith starrer Veeram. The film will be directed by Farhad Samji.”
The source revealed more details,
“He has not given a green signal to any project. It’s true he is in talks for LOL but he has not taken a call on the same yet. He’s reading all the scripts that are coming to him and will decide on his next project in a few months from now. He has watched Veeram and liked how the makers have spun off the Hindi version. LOL is not only massy but is extremely funny and entertaining. As of now, SRK has liked the script.”
It seems that Land Of Lungi title, is inspired by SRK’s Hit Bollywood song: Lungi Dance (Sung By Yo Yo Honey Singh), from Chennai Express, where Deepika Padukone was his leading lady.
