King Khan has been a busy bee throughout the lockdown! Shah Rukh Khan
has put his time in quarantine to good use. Sources say Shah Rukh Khan has heard a total of 18 script narrations! The latest buzz is that he will take on the leading role in three or four scripts and produce some of them.
Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in the 2018 film Zero. While he does have a few films under his belt, King Khan is relatively free and the offers seem to be pouring for him!
Sources say, "These include scripts from Raj Kumar Hirani
, Siddharth Anand, Raj and DK, and Atlee Tigmanshu Dhulia, Amit Ravidranath Sharma, Madhur Bhandarkar, Aki Abbas Zafar, Shimit Amin, and Amar Kaushik. Some are films and the others are web shows. While no paperwork has been done and no final decisions have been taken. there are reports that an OTT major other than Netflix has sent feelers to King Khan to make content for them as well."
A couple of weeks ago, there were rumors of a collaboration between Madhur Bhandarkar and SRK. Sources said that Bhandarkar had presented SRK with a film about the sand mafia. Rumors of Atlee sending him an action script were also the talk of the town. Raj Kumar Hirani has presented him with a Punjab to Canada migration script as well. Tigmanshu Dhulia, on the other hand, had sent King Khan a script on Shiv Kumar Patel aka Dadu, the dacoit as a production proposal. Ali Abbas Zafar had approached SRK with a sports biopic. Last but not the least, Shimit Amin had presented a web series on girmitiyas.
There was also a strong buzz that SRK may team up with Sriram Raghavan after the two had had a long talk session at a film festival in Melbourne. However, sources close to Raghavan had squashed all the rumors.
With all this in store for King Khan, what will he decide upon remains a mystery? Will, there be any announcements soon or will we have to wait for his birthday that is coming up on the 2nd of November for some news? Only time will tell!
Meanwhile, his venture Class of ‘83 Bobby Deol is now a Netflix Original and will air soon! Bob Biswas, the Kahaani spinoff starring Abhishek Bachchan’s shooting now stands halted owing to the COVID-19 outbreak. King Khan has Dhoom 4 and Don 3 under his belt as well.
