Aditya Chopra is making a comeback as a director with Befikre after a long gap of seven years. The director seems to continue his innings as we hear that he has already started planning for his next which will start Shahrukh Khan in a lead role.
During the promotion of Fan, SRK said, “Aditya Chopra has a plan to do a film with me. I think I will start shooting from Aditya’s next film by the end of 2017. All he has told me is the fact that is a very big project and I might have to sit for two months with Adi to prepare for the character. He told me that the shooting will be wrapped up in three months, but I will have to work with him on characters for two months prior to shooting for the film. I have no idea what he is making, but he has just asked me to keep my dates free next year.”
According to a report in Filmfare, SRK’s next with Aditya Chopra will be a period drama, supposedly with a huge budget and Shah Rukh Khan will be seen as a warrior. Since this is a new genre for the director, he wants to take his time for pre-production and research. Aditya Chopra is aiming to take the film on the floors in the second half of 2017.
SRK has as many as three new projects in his hand. The actor has already completed the shooting for Raees (26 Jan 2017) and Gauri Shinde’s next (Nov 2016). SRK will start with the shooting of Aanand L. Rai’s dwarf film in July.
