While Bollywood’s Badshah aka Shahrukh Khan fans have been eagerly waiting for his next flick. There are rumors that he might be in talks with producer Nikhil Dwivedi for the role of Bill in the Hindi version of Hollywood film Kill Bill.
King Khan went on a sabbatical after the box office nosedive of his last film Zero. As the film turned into a big box office disappointment, despite him being the male lead. A disheartened SRK reportedly took time off to be with his family and kids.
According to a report on Mid-Day, Nikhil has purchased the rights of Kill Bill and talks are underway with Shahrukh to play the antagonist. Anurag Kashyap is rumored to take the position behind the camera when the time comes for shooting the film.
Talking about Kill Bill, helmed by Quentin Tarantino, it is a classic action Hollywood film that starred Uma Thurman and has been a milestone story of revenge. A source shared with Mid-Day,
“Nikhil bought the remake rights earlier this year, and now, he is in the process of giving shape to the project. There has been (a) talk about Shahrukh stepping into the role of the antagonist, Bill. This is one of the many films that the actor is considering for his next as he is keen on working with (Anurag) Kashyap. However, the discussions are at a nascent stage. The team has yet to zero in on the leading lady who will breathe life into Thurman’s part.”
If everything goes as planned then it will be a huge comeback for SRK as the antagonist on the silver screen playing a key role. We will get to see King Khan play a baddie after a long while after his initial films like Darr and Baazigar. There are reports that filmmakers are working on finalizing other characters of the film.
