Ki & Ka director R. Balki says he would love to work with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan!
Famed for his ‘hatke’ movies, R. Balki has worked with Amitabh Bachchan in four of his films so far and R. Balki says he would love to work with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan given that he has the right idea and the right script to approach them.
In an interview with IANS, he said “Who does not want to work with the Khans? But there’s no point in me working with them unless I really get an idea, then I chase them and ask them if they want to do it. I want to work with all of them, but the idea should be there. I’d love to work with Shah Rukh Khan), love to work with Salman Khan, but the thing is you have to get the correct idea for them.”
Balki’s wife Gauri Shinde made her directorial debut with the superhit English Vinglish and is currently busy with her yet-untitled next film with Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan. During the interview, Balki also talked about his wife. He said “Gauri always says, ‘I wish that you could at least become 10 percent of the characters that you write. Why can’t you be like Kabir? Or like others?’ I always tell her that if I would become my characters, then why would I write them. I’ll always write what I am not. I never write what’s there in life, but what I want to become in life. Like we think, this is how a man or a woman should be, every writer has qualities of both male and female. So whatever he/she wishes, they write that, not what they really are, but what they want to be.”
Whatever Gauri says, we think they make a really talented couple! What do you think?
