If reports are to be believed, then SRK has finally signed his next film after ‘Zero’. As per the latest information, Shah Rukh Khan has given his approval to an action film, which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. The upcoming film will release in 2020 and will be produced by Yash Raj Films, claims a report by an entertainment portal.
In fact, Ali Abbas and Shah Rukh have had a preliminary discussion about the project and the latter has given the filmmaker a positive response.
Shahrukh and Abbas are coming together for an action movie
A source said, “Shah Rukh has signed a big actioner which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Shah Rukh wanted to take up an action-oriented subject as his next and he’s finally got the perfect script. The film is going to be mounted on a giant scale and will be one of the biggest films to hit screens in 2020.”
Ali Abbas had this idea and bounced it off to Shahrukh
“The superstar has always been fond of Ali’s work and feels he brings out the right mix of action and emotion in his films. On the other hand, Ali has always wanted to collaborate with Shah Rukh. Their union was waiting to happen and it’s finally happening now.”
From what we hear, YRF will bankroll this project that is expected to go on floors sometime towards early next year. “Ali has launched his own production and will be busy with Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday starrer Khali Peeli. It’s only after that he will roll out with the film with Shah Rukh. Currently, they have discussed the concept and SRK has given his nod. Ali is readying the script. Nothing else is known about the film as of now.”
Moreover, superstar Shahrukh Khan has always loved Ali’s work and he feels that the director has a proper mind for action and emotions in his films. Also, Ali always wanted to collaborate with Shah Rukh. Well, now it’s happening!
However, there is no official announcement on the same yet.
Additionally, Shahrukh Khan took a break after his film ‘Zero’ didn’t work at the box office. So, naturally, he has been conscious of the script for his next project.
