Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is currently occupied with the work of his upcoming film Zero, directed by Anand L Rai. It was being said that the actor is all set to reunite with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a period drama. Now, according to the report of a leading daily, Mid-day, SRK will start shooting for SLB’s film even before Rakesh Sharma biopic. He was reportedly recommended by superstar Aamir Khan for the latter.
As per the report, SRK has given his nod to the project. However, the leading lady is yet to be finalised. Many actresses are being considered for the role but Bhansali has not made the final decision yet.
A source revealed to Mid-day, “Not many know that Shah Rukh and Bhansali have been in talks for long. During a recent meeting, the director narrated his script to him. It is a fictional love story with a period setting. While Shah Rukh has given his nod in principle, the project is facing a roadblock by way of its female lead. Though the names of a few leading ladies are being thrown around, Bhansali is yet to zero in on an actress.”
On a related note, SRK was last seen in Jab Harry Met Sejal alongside Anushka Sharma. The movie couldn’t do wonders at the box office. Along with Shah Rukh, Zero also features Anushka and Katrina Kaif.
