Look what SRK and Karan Johar have asked Atlee now?
It is confirmed news that director Atlee (of Mersal, Bigil, and Raja Rani fame) will be working with Shahrukh Khan in his next film! This film is expected to be an out-and-out ‘commercial entertainer’.
It had also been rumoured that the film was shelved since Shahrukh Khan had shown disinterest in working with director Atlee. However, here is the latest update on the ‘Bigil’ director Atlee’s film with Bollywood King Shahrukh Khan. As per latest reports, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions have collaborated with the project.
Presently, director Atlee has been working with the creative team of Dharma Productions to elaborate the screenplay of the film. Further, Atlee, Karan Johar, and Shahrukh Khan are ensuring that the director’s trademark style is retained in the script while keeping up with the pan-India appeal.
When Atlee met Shahrukh Khan, he had just narrated four powerful mass scenes and the summary of the plot to the actor. However, while Shah Rukh had liked Atlee’s narration, he was in favour of a bounded script before taking things further. As such, King Khan hopes that this project will give him a blockbuster, about which he has wanted to produce since the last few years! The film is expected to be a Tamil-Hindi bilingual, and it will start rolling from early 2021.
At the same time, Shahrukh Khan has signed up with Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK for their next film, and reports say that he is interested in working in Rajkumar Hirani’s next directorial as well.
