Very recently, there were rumors doing rounds that Bollywood’s Badshah aka Shah Rukh Khan has plans to work with Tamil filmmaker Atlee Kumar for a film. In a recent media interaction talking about Atlee’s upcoming flick: Bigil, director Harish dropped hints that confirmed this collaboration. And Atlee also dropped indirect hints about the same collaboration.
If the latest rumors are to be believed, Atlee has asked Rs. 30 Crore for the job.
A source close to the project shared with Indian Express,
“Though Atlee bagged call sheets of Shah Rukh bhai, further details of this project are awaited, which will be revealed in November. As for now, Atlee is focused on Bigil. SRK quite liked Atlee’s idea, and decided to bankroll, this, too.”
Rumors about Atlee and SRK coming together for a project gained prominence when both were spotted side by side at an IPL match in Chennai this year.
Very recently during the launch event of TED Talks India: Nayi Baat, when Shah Rukh Khan was asked about his next film, he said,
“I am thinking and taking some time. I am working on two or three scripts and, Inshallah, as soon as they are ready, I am ready. Because most of the people with whom I am working are busy so, Inshallah, I will announce it myself. I feel till the time rumours are floating around, it’s good because some of them have given me ideas.”
“There was one film people said that I am going to do – Tarzan And Jane. So, I really want to do the role of Tarzan but no, I think, in another month or two, I will figure out everything.” Meanwhile, there are strong whispers that the star might make a film announcement on his birthday (November 2) this year.
Ever since SRK’s Zero had a nosedive at the box office. He went on a sabbatical and his fans were eagerly waiting for his silver screen comeback.
