SRK, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in Aanand L Rai’s next

Anushka Sharma will play the female lead in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film that is being directed by ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ director Aanand L Rai. The film also stars Katrina Kaif.

Shah Rukh will be playing the role of a dwarf in the romantic film about new-age relationships.

The director had earlier said Shah Rukh was his first and only choice to play the lead character.

“I am at a point in life when I want to do something challenging. And, when you get an opportunity to work with actors like these, you don’t want to miss it. All three characters have a newness about them. The film is not a romcom or a pure love story. It’s about new-age relationships. I can’t talk about Katrina’s or Anushka’s characters. While everyone knows that SRK plays a dwarf, there’s a lot more to it than just that.”

“As a director, you instinctively know what’ll work with an artiste. I needed an actor who is very sure of himself for this role. Also, nobody can romance like him. On his part, he never had any apprehensions about playing a dwarf.Β The film begins the way I love to start my stories, but the way it ends is a first for me. I’m nervous and excited at the same time”

The shooting of the untitled film began last week.

  • ” The director had earlier said Shahrukh was his 1st and only choice to play the lead character. ”
    So bikiniwalo don’t lie that Salman was the 1st choice for this film.

  • I am happy that deepika opted out of this film.otherwise after its success bikiniwalas will give its full credit to deepika.just like they did with CE and HNY .

  • Nothing is about stardom these days. Its about matching content and hype. Its a romantic film so I highly doubt it will succeed. SRK is a gone case in box-office. His time was from 1992-2004. No more now. Its 2010s, not 90s or 2000s

  • l rai’s movies always have strong cast but this time he has made a mistake by signing Katrina.

  • i hope it crosses Raees lifetime or maybe even Dilwale and become Srk’s biggest grosser in the last five years.
    fun fact: Dangal’s 6th day collection in china will be higher than this movie’s lifetime. hahahah Duniya ka sabse bada superstar lol

  • @wicked sunny…
    IT WAS NEVER A SCI-FI MOVIE.. IT WAS ALWAYS BEEN TOUTED AS A NEW AGE LOVESTORY…
    ROM COM AMD LOVE STORY BOTH ARE DIFFERENT GENRE…

    M SORRY ME BHI KISIS SAMJHA RAHA HU.. THE GUY WHO WAS EXPECTING ANAND L RAI TO DIRECT A SCI-FI MOVIE…

  • live in relashionships… WTH!!! expected something fresh and thrilling when it announced. please SRK sir change the gear, do some socially relevant films. any way good luck from an akki fan!!!

  • If it got Good response from audience ….then all box office records of a Hindi film will be in danger..

    Haters have to remember that even in his worst phase SRK is still a Superstar ….

  • @Wicked Sunny Deol:

    Every love-story is a rom-com ?
    Devdas, Guide, Veer-Zara, HAHK are they all rom-coms ?

  • @indicine
    The reason why srk isnt in the top 2 anymore is bcoz he is still inclined towards doing romantic movies where his age which every1 knows and he doesnt fit as a romantic hero anymore.. Still he is prefering to do romantic!/love story movies. Salman did bajrangi(cross border drama) , followed it with prdp(love story drama), followed it up with sultan(wrestling drama) which is a tough movie and then tubelight(cross border brotherhood manchild drama)which will be followed by tiger zinda hai(raw isi agent love story/drama).remo d souza movie(where he plays a father)
    Aamir did talash(supernatural), dhoom 3(heist drama),pk(religion),dangal(wrestling father daughter story) followed thugs(pirates drama). They jumped to megastar status by blending themselves into diff movies!
    Shahrukh has a love story followed by a love story followed by something else but still it will basically be a love story only!!srk shd do movies like chakde, swades, fan(story was bad.. But he attempted something different). If he keeps doing these films a day will come varun dhawan will be ahead of srk. Simply bcoz one would like to c varun romancing deepika,anuska rather than srk!

  • back to back with anushka is quite boring …SRK should think about it katrina is ok but anushka is not…..i think aalia is best choice..as in news that the character is divyaang…..aalia is perfect….he should convince and approach her..

  • Why the hell always she (Anushka Sharma). She is only suitable for shitty urban rom coms. Now it is looking extremely boring, nothing fresh.

  • Again Romcom…on the other side aamir doing veriety scripts…So sad SRK… This film will be avg or Hit…How can we stop this bullshit rom com…

  • Another JTHJ means another CRAP & FLOP movie…..Only manipulation can save this from Flop just like other Srk movies…..

  • Annd L Rai want to cast a Star who is good Artist (Actor) so he cast Srk.

    Salman not do this movie because he knows that he is average performer not a good actor.

  • Drawf film will break the record of bahubali 2, only ALR or hirani can do with A list actor

  • @ Salman fan and many more, just because this movie has same starcast of JTHJ how can u call it as JTHJ 2 ? By this logic we can also call tubelight as Bajrangi bhaijaan 2 and little boy 2.Salman is fooling the audience with his same innocence acting.

  • ‘How the movie ends is a first for me’ ha ha ha. If it gives us no happy ending, we will not return to theatres for a re-watch. So be wise Mr Rai and do the right thing for commercial success.

  • Bored watching him pairing up with the anushkas, katrinas, deepikas.. Would love to watch srk pair up with kangana, vidya, jacqueline, sonakshi, sonam, shraddha onscreen.. A fresh pairing would generate immense curiosity among the audience.

  • @Wicked Sunny
