EXCLUSIVE: Shah Rukh Khan was keen on working with SLB before ‘Salute’ and we know why

Shah Rukh Khan, the King of Romance has been ruling Bollywood over decades with his chocolate boy image. But looking at the last few films by the actor, seems like SRK is in the mood for some experiment. While the actor was seen in a businessman-gangster avatar in ‘Raees’, he was also seen as a casanova tourist guide in director Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’

But now, the actor in his forthcoming film ‘Zero’ will be seen essaying the role of a Dwarf. Interesting, isn’t it?

Talking on it further, we feel that the actor is on an experimental spree. Reportedly, SRK was supposed to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but call it his bad luck or fate, the project never took off and the star may work with SLB after his next ‘Salute’.

Elaborating on the same, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had approached the ‘Queen‘ actress Kangana Ranaut to be the leading lady of his film opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Even Kangana had confirmed that the director has approached her for a film and the two are in talks about it. But after some time the news about the SRK-starrer SLB film died away with time.

Now if sources are to be believed, SRK after wrapping up director Aanand L Rai’s ‘Zero’ will start working on Rakesh Sharma biopic titled as ‘Salute’. And the reason behind SRK choosing Rakesh over SLB, is the delay in finalising the film’s leading lady.

Talking about Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shah Rukh Khan, the two have worked together in the 2002 release ‘Devdas’ which is considered to be one of the masterpieces in the Indian cinema. And looking at the director’s track record with films like ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and his last ‘Padmaavat’, all have been superhits at the box-office and Shah Rukh wanting to collaborate with him is surely a wise decision.

We hope things workout fast between the two and we get to see the two talented personas together once again.
