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. 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.
