New Delhi: If rumours are to be believed, then director Aanand L Rai wants to rope in actor Shah Rukh Khan for his next venture. To Rai's good fortune, the superstar has agreed to listen to the narration once he returns from Iceland.
Rai has been striking gold at the box office with movies like Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel and Raanjhanaa. His last few movies were low budget ones and devoid of the superstar Khans of Bollywood. Tanu Weds Manu Returns, which was Rai's last venture, made Kangana Ranaut one of the most sought after actresses of Bollywood. But it now seems that he is keen on bringing the big name of tinsel town on board with him.
An insider from the industry confirmed, “Yes Aanand has met and discussed a story with Shah Rukh which he liked, immensely. This film will definitely be made, but the paperwork is yet to be completed. There is no clarity on the role yet.”
The source also asserts that if all goes well, the movie will go on the floors after Shah Rukh wraps up Rahul Dholakia's Raees and Maneesh Sharma's Fan.
Shah Rukh Khan has been busy shooting a romantic number with actress Kajol under Farah Khan's choreography for Rohit Shetty's ‘Dilwale.' Meanwhile, Anand is tied up with the production of ‘Happy Bhaag Jaayegi' starring Abhay Deol and Diana Penty.
