We have now learnt that the actor has revived his discussion on his big-budget action film with South director, Atlee. The film has been in discussions for over a year now, but the director was busy finalising the script.
A source reveals to Bollywood Hungama, “Last month, before the lockdown became stringent in Mumbai, Atlee had flown down from Chennai. He met Shah Rukh and gave the final narration of his script. This meeting is an indication that the film is very much on. If all goes well, then Shah Rukh Khan will begin shooting for Atlee’s next by the end of 2021.”
The official confirmation is still awaited on these projects, however it’s a great line up of films for the return of King Khan on big screen!
