The announcement of Gauri Shinde’s next film starring Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan, has come as a surprise to a lot of people.
More often that not, when SRK does a film, rumours start doing the rounds 2 or 3 months before the official announcement. This time around, there were no rumours and even after the announcement Shah Rukh hasn’t spoken about the film.
Reliable sources have now informed us, that the untitled film will feature Alia Bhatt in the lead. SRK will have an important role to play, but will have limited screen time.
The film goes on floors mid-October and the shooting schedule will be wrapped up by the end of January 2016. We can also confirm that the Gauri Shinde directed film, which will be produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions and Hope Productions, will hit screens in 2016.
Red Chillies and Dharma join hands for the first time after the success of ‘Student Of The Year’ and their collaboration in a content-oriented film, will generate tremendous interest.
While SRK is yet to publicly talk about the film, sources close to him say, the superstar is very excited about the project and his role in the movie.
The final release date hasn’t been announced, but the film is likely to hit theatres after the release of ‘Raees’.
Lots to look forward to for Shahrukh and his fans in 2016. ‘Dilwale’ will be running in theatres at the beginning of next year, Maneesh Sharma’s ‘Fan’ in April, Rahul Dholakia’s ‘Raees’ in July and an interesting yet different role in Gauri Shinde’s untitled film.. all in 2016.
