A reliable source has confirmed that Aditya Chopra, head honcho of Yash Raj Films, is targeting the Diwali weekend in 2016 to release his fourth directorial venture also starring Shah Rukh Khan.
The source added that the untitled film will be yet another love story with SRK playing a ‘more mature character’ as compared to some of his previous romantic films. She reasoned that the actor would be 50+ when the film releases in theatres.
There is one other extremely special reason why the makers are targeting Diwali 2016. The release of the film would coincide with Shahrukh Khan’s 51st birthday (November 2nd), as Diwali falls on October 30th in 2016.
The film is yet to be officially announced by YRF, but news of Aditya Chopra directing Shahrukh Khan has already been creating waves in the industry. It would be their fourth film together after Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
