It has been almost a year that King Khan’s fans saw him on the silver screen while he last appeared in ‘Zero’ which came as a major disappointment. A dud at box office followed by a long break increased anticipations in the fans over his next flick. While all the star directors including Rajkumar Hirani are queuing up to sign him up, news has it that Shah Rukh picked a South Indian director Atlee is now making rounds in Bollywood stables.
According to the sources, Shah Rukh is in advanced stages of script talks with the young director and will hit the sets anytime soon. Adding further buzz, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies will be producing Atlee’s movie. ‘Sanki’ is rumoured to be the working title.
It was during the #AskMe session on Twitter that Atlee poured his heart over teaming up with Shah Rukh which went viral back then. The King Khan who was already impressed with Atlee’s ‘Bigil’ was said to give positive signals to pair with the star director. While the fans awaited the news to be dropped on the Superstar’s birthday, the project got delayed due to unknown reasons. Atlee’s south team has already started the post-production.
