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.
