For quite some time, the acclaimed director has been working on the script for his next film. He was evidently dissatisfied with the second half and decided to revise it till the final product met his expectations.
The latest update now states that the filmmaker, Rajkumar Hirani, has finally locked the script of his much awaited next directorial. “Hirani and his writing partner, Kanikka Dhillon have finally locked the full-fledged screenplay of their film. They are happy with the outcome and are now all geared up to start the prep work of the film,” a trade source shared with Bollywood Hungama.
While SRK is gearing up to begin filming for South filmmaker Atlee’s next in September, Raju Hirani will begin casting for the film the following month.
