Shah Rukh Khan has been missing from the big screen for a long time now. He was last seen in the 2018 starrer Zero. Since then it’s been all quiet on his front. So much that he’d even refused to announce his next project. But it seems he has finally given the nod for a movie. Rumours are rife that Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani will collaborate for the first time with their next film.
According to a leading daily, the film revolves around immigration issues and hence it will be shot extensively in Punjab and Canada. The ongoing lockdown due to the corona virus pandemic has delayed things a bit. The makers are waiting for normalcy to return and for travelling rules to ease out., before they can start shooting. In this social comedy Shah Rukh Khan will play a man from Punjab who faces immigration issues.
Speaking to the daily, a source close to the film revealed, “Like all Raju films, it revolves around a serious, globally relevant issue and is treated with gentle humour. The story moves between Punjab and Canada. This guy is jovial, he’ll make you laugh and will get you emotional. Shah Rukh is growing his hair for the part.” The source also spoke about the shooting schedule saying, “The film requires a long outdoor shoot abroad and they will wait till travel restrictions are eased. If things get back to normal soon, it should kick off before the year ends.”
Now let’s just keep our fingers crossed and hope that King Khan sreturns to the big screen soon. We’ve also heard that Shah Rukh Khan might do Krishna and Raj DK’s action flick. God willing.
