The year 2017 started with a bang with Shah Rukh Khan‘s ‘Raees’. So, of course, the superstar’s fans are eagerly waiting for his next film to hit the big screen. Many would know that his next film with director Imtiaz Ali is all set for a release in the coming month of August.

So, according to a report in a leading tabloid, the actor will be producing a movie based on one of our most successful missions named ‘Operation Khukri’ that took place in Sierra Leone in year 2000.

Talking about the film, a source from SRK’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment has quoted to the leading tabloid saying, “It has been researched extensively and will be mounted on a really large scale. It will be a true depiction of a massive military operation and will celebrate our heroes.

It is touted to be the most ambitious and expensive project that SRK’s production house has undertaken. The project is being made in association with Azure Entertainment.

“It will be shot in real locations in Africa with some real armed combat battle scenes,” added the source. [sic]

But, as the source has quoted that the cast is being finalised, we have to wait and see whether the superstar would star in this project or not. Well, SRK is not new when it comes to donning a defence uniform. The actor has played the role of an army officer in films like ‘Main Hoon Na’, ‘Veer-Zaara’, ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan‘ and even the cult TV series ‘Fauji’ in the initial phase of his career.

So, let’s wait for an official announcement about the same.
