Anushka Sharma not confirmed in SRK’s next with Imtiaz Ali

While reports of Anushka Sharma signing Shah Rukh Khan’s next have been doing the rounds in the last couple of weeks, SRK has said that the rumours doing the rounds aren’t true.

“I have been hearing a lot of things like I am playing a Sikh, a guide.. but in another two months we will announce the film. We are waiting for the technical team to get together” Shah Rukh told reporters on Tuesday.

There were reports that Anushka had been finalised to play the female lead, after Deepika’s dates couldn’t be worked out. Also, Deepika is likely to be the top contender to share screen-space with the superstar in Aanand L Rai’s ambitious next.

Last week, Imtiaz Ali along with his team flew to Budapest (Hungary) to finalise shooting locations for their film. Like Imtiaz’s ‘Tamasha’, his next untitled film will be shot across stunning locations – most of which will be in Europe. The makers are currently in the process of getting permissions at locations where they want to shoot the film.

Shah Rukh will begin shooting in August this year. The film doesn’t yet have a release date – but the actor has said in the past that he likes to announce the dates of his films after it goes on floors.



  • SRK has given us many wonderful films like DDLJ, KKHH, Mohabatein , Veer zaara which made him king of bollywood.
    Now his career is in low phase So we should support him.
    Huge respect to u @iamsrk.

  • I will be looking forward to this film.. Imtiaz Ali is a good director and I loved his films like Jab We Met, Rockstar, Tamasha..

    SRK needs just one good commercial film to get back to where he belongs.

    From a box office point of view.. it hope it holds wider appeal, because if its as niche as Tamasha.. then it has no chance to be a big grosser.

  • Best of luck!

    The heroine does not matter. Am definitely sure whoever will be the heroine will be casted based on an unanimous decision. All is well Shah Rukh..!

  • Agree with @aman.. we all should support SRK and not criticise him after a few bad films.. when a role really demands a good performance, we all know he can deliver better than most actors in the industry.

  • I think Srk should start shooting from June last. Than he can complete it fast and move for Anand L. Rais project.

    Anyway waiting for your Raees along with Gauri Shines Next.

  • *Shah Rukh will begin shooting in August this year. The film doesn’t yet have a release date – but the actor has said in the past that he likes to announce the dates of his films after it goes on floors*

    This is called confidence.While our bhai announced 3yr before shooting,Insecurity and lack of self belief.But for us bhaitards this is confidence. Our bhai is a saint that is why when he went great to great the black buck she killed her self to blame on our innocent bhai.


  • I think gud actpr need gud director… Srk was off color in hny n dilwale bt manish sharma bring out his potential in fan . imtiyaz srk again gud combo n ideal choice. Bollywood lack grls with desi feel like samantha..kajal agarwal to do a great love story. I hope deepika-srk doent happn they might be great on box office bt nt ideal pair.

  • for SRK these days 90 crore is out of range and people talking about 300 crore hahahahahahahahahaha another laugh riot before the biggest laugh riot in bollywood “The Housefull 3” eagerly waiting for H-3

  • I personally love Imtiaz way of story telling and very happy on his collaboration with SRK-From BO point of view last few Imtiaz’s movies had limited audience-hope he makes a universal appealing movie while sticking to his style-Like jab we met,love aj kal

  • i think new actress wil be good for the film becoz we see this pair many times and also with deepika and priyanka katrina new young actress like urvasi rautela yami gautam

  • Thanks Indicine for this update. An update on these two movies of SRK was long overdue on you.

    Super excited about all three next movies of his : Raees, Anand Rais movie as well as his movie with Imtiaz Ali. Also about Gauri Shindes movie but that comes on 4th number.

    SRK + Imtiaz + Anushka looks to be super awesome combo. Looking forward to it definitely. Waiting for more details about the movie.

    But am most excited about the Anand Rai movie since the time heard he plays a midget. Plus I am a fan of Anand Rais story telling method (found TWM, TWMR, Ranjhanaa to be superb) so him coming together with SRK hopefully shall be something really great. Have heard it is a romantic movie and there will be two heroines in it. But all that is secondary. SRK playing a different role and directed by Anand Rai is enough a reason to desperately wait for no matter who the heroine is.

  • And adding onto my last comment I am hoping Anushka gets finalized for Imtiaz Alis movie. Found her pairing with SRK to be great in RNBJ and JTHJ. So looking forward to her working with SRK again.
