Of late, superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been experimenting with the kind of film he does and even with the new directors. After working with Maneesh Sharma, Rahul Dholakia, Imtiaz Ali and currently shooting a film with Aanand L Rai, it was being speculated that he is all set to team up with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar. Reports suggested that this project for which they both will be teaming up for will be based on the Indian Army and will be along the lines of the superstar’s cult TV series, ‘Fauji’ (1988). But, today putting an end to all these rumours, the ‘Piku’ director has denied all the reports about him planning to collaborate with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
While talking about it to an agency from Melbourne, Shoojit Sircar has confirmed saying, “No. This is wrong news. I am not aware of it at all. I have no clue. I’m just getting into a film with Varun. That’s already been announced.” [sic] (Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan reveals he never discusses work with Salman Khan and Aamir Khan)
Many would be aware that it was just a few weeks ago that filmmaker had announced his next with actor Varun Dhawan titled as ‘October’. The movie is supposedly a rom-com.
Currently, the filmmaker is in Melbourne. He had went there to attend the prestigious Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2017 where his production venture ‘PINK’ won the Best Film award.
Talking about winning this honour, he said, “It’s a joy and a proud moment for the team, especially because we have got an acknowledgment from the Australian jury. The film has resonated with them as well. That gives a high. It shows that we are on the right path.” [sic]
