After Shahrukh Khan‘s Zero had a nosedive at the box office, he stopped reading scripts and was keeping himself busy with his kids. But there’s good news for his fans, he’s preparing himself to come out of his unofficial sabbatical. There are rumors that he has finally gotten the “perfect” script for his next release and it won’t be a romantic movie but a big actioner!
And Ali Abbas Zafar will be donning the director’s hat.
A source close to the developments revealed,
“Shahrukh Khan has signed a big actioner which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. SRK wanted to take up an action-oriented subject as his next and he’s finally got the perfect script. The film is going to be mounted on a giant scale and will be one of the biggest films to hit screens in 2020.”
“The superstar has always been fond of Ali’s work and feels he brings out the right mix of action and emotion in his films. On the other hand, Ali has always wanted to collaborate with Shahrukh. Their union was waiting to happen and it’s finally happening now.”
A YRF production, it will go on floors at the beginning of next year. With Ali having his own production house which is currently busy with Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Pandey starrer Khali Peeli, he needs more time to finish the script of SRK’s project.
It seems that Shahrukh Khan who is popular for romance flicks now wants to replicate his success model in action genre too with Ali Abbas Zafar on-board in the capacity of a director.
Shahrukh is also producing some action series for Netflix like Bard of Blood with Emraan Hashmi on-board as the male lead.
Ali Abbas Zafar has given a lot of action flicks like Tashan, NewYork, Gunday & Tiger Zinda Hai.
Filmybyte wishes both a piece of good luck for their first venture.
