There is a lot of anticipation around Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming films, especially since he’s coming back after a long gap. On one hand, he has already started shooting for YRF’s Pathan and Atlee’s Jawan, his next with Rajkumar Hirani is yet to begin.
This project of SRK with Rajkumar Hirani is the most special, since it’s the first ever collaboration between the actor and the director and it’s slated to take box office by storm.
There were earlier reports that Taapsee is the leading lady in the film, however the actress continued to deny the same.

Taapsee Pannu had said, “Agar aisa kuch ho raha hoga na, mai hi khud apne chhat pe chadke bolungi. Koi sharam wali baat thodi na hai ki ‘haye! logo ko nai pata chalna chahiye.’ This is not that kind of news. So when I sign and seal it, I will be the one shouting. Toh aap kahi pe bhi hoge Bombay me, aapko meri awaaz sun jayegi.”
As per the latest reports, Taapsee Pannu has been confirmed to play a leading lady in this film. However, she has a limited role in the film.
The script has been written by Rajkumar Hirani and Kanika Dhillon, which revolves around ‘Donkey flight’. As of now, the recce has begun and locations are being finalised in Punjab, where the film will go on floors by early next year.
