There is no actress in Bollywood who wouldn’t want to work with the popular duo Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. They are the perfect combos when it comes to put up any romantic or period film. We all know that Deepika Padukone is filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s favourite. She has worked with him in the period drama ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and now she is gearing up for his next ‘Padmavati’ which is slated to release in November this year. SLB is gearing up for one more period film for which he has apparently considered Kangana Ranaut and the hero of the film is Shah Rukh Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone have worked together in ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Happy New Year’. The movie buffs have loved their chemistry in all the three films. Don’t you think they would have made a great pair in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film? Since quite a long time the discussions are going on about SLB doing a film with Kangana and SRK. Mind you, it is almost after a decade that King Khan and SLB would be reuniting for a project. In an interview with a leading daily, Shah Rukh Khan has spoken about this period film.
In an interview with DNA when the 51-year-old superstar was asked if he’s doing any film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali he was quoted saying as, “With Sanjay, I would definitely like to work. In the last few months, we have been discussing a lot of projects. But there are date issues, his starting issue so inshallah, we will do something.”
Talking about the period film that Kangana Ranaut had said that the filmmaker wants the superstar in his next about it Shah Rukh Khan further said, “Yes, there is a discussion of that film too. I don’t know if that film has been cast. I don’t want to speak out of turn. It is a period setting, but I don’t really sit down and ask, who the other cast members are. It would be wonderful if she’s there, but we haven’t honed on it yet. We have chatted about it, talked about it and we still haven’t sat down and said we’re starting this one. So, that is also very interesting, very nice.”
Shah Rukh Khan also revealed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has offered him two scripts and one of it is this period film. At present, SRK is shooting for Aanand L Rai’s dwarf film which will take another five to six months for him to complete.
