Celebrated film maker Anand L Rai, has always been wanting to work with the Badshah of Bollywood- Shah Rukh Khan. In the recent past, the Tanu Weds Manu director has expressed his desire to cast Shah Rukh in one of his movies. It now looks like his wait is finally over. According to a leading daily, the duo has finally agreed on a project and SRK will listen to Rai’s narration once he wraps up Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale.

A source close to the project confirms this saying, “Yes Aanand has met and discussed a story with Shah Rukh which he liked, immensely. This film will definitely be made, but the paperwork is yet to be completed.” May be that’s the reason why none of the parties, and this includes the director, wish to comment on the subject till the first week of September. However, according to the source, the film will go on the floors next year, after Shah Rukh finishes Rahul Dholakia’s Raees and Maneesh Sharma’s Fan. It will be produced under Shah Rukh Khan’s banner and according to the buzz, he’s playing a dwarf in the film. However, on this the source is hesitant to clarify, “There is no clarity on the role yet,” says the report.
Anand L Rai has churned out some of the most beautiful romantic love stories like Raanjhanaa, Tanu Weds Manu and Tanu Weds Manu Returns. We just cannot wait for the King of Romance to start with Rai’s project. We are sure the director-actor duo will pave way for something unconventionally exceptional.
