Exclusive: Shah Rukh Khan to take a year-long sabbatical from acting and analyse his strategies


One might wonder why Shah Rukh Khan stepped out of Saare Jahaan Se Acha. More so, because the superstar has not announced any other film in between. So people are confused if he actually opted out for a specific film. There were reports that he will start Don 3 by the end of this year but now, we hear Shah Rukh Khan has taken a major decision in his life.

Says a source close to the hero, “After the failure of Zero, SRK now plans to take a year long break from movies. He will be producing films in the meanwhile. But he has told his team not to lock any of his dates this entire year for a project. He wants to take a sabbatical and analyse his strategies first.” There won’t be a single film he will shoot this year and his next release will only possibly be towards the end of 2020 or early 2021.

The actor is in talks with three directors right now – Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Madhur Bhandarkar along with Farhan. He will most likely do Don 3, after Akhtar finishes his boxing film with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. It now needs to be seen which film he will announce first. But will this break help him or not? Your guess is as good as ours!
