If you are still trying to figure out what this means, let’s give you a rewind. Tanu Weds Manu fame director Aanand L Rai is getting geared up for his next project featuring Shah Rukh Khan, where he will play a dwarf. In fact, Aanand L Rai thinks there is no one better than Shah Rukh Khan to play a dwarf.
In a recent interview with PTI, Rai talked about his project. This is what he has to say “Film with Khan saab is my most ambitious project because he is the main casting of the film. I don’t think there is anyone who can play the character better than him. I am fortunate I got Shah Rukh Khan for this film. After meeting him, I realised he is such a large-hearted man. For me, as a director, that actor becomes very important who can understand other human beings and Shah Rukh has great understanding of people.”
He is still working on the script of the movie. He said “Right now the work is going on the story. I am totally in sync with Khaan saab, we are in touch. I am writing a story which we all should be proud of. We hope to start the film by the end of the year. I am taking my time on the story… Of course, there is something… It is there but this aspect also has a lot of details which I don’t want to reveal right now. People are thinking it is a film about a short man but I will say it has a very tall story. It is a challenging, entertaining story. As an actor, it is a challenging role for him. As a maker, it is an important film for me. It will be fun raising the bar and when you finally get Shah Rukh Khan, you wouldn’t want to lose the opportunity.”
