The film will have Khan play an ageing dancer. The actor also revealed that he will play father to a nine-year-old in the film.

However, DNA's report also suggests that the film's name is subject to change if the makers think of a better name.

According to a previous report by Firstpost, Khan is also taking professional dance training for the movie. “He is already training for this movie. I can’t tell you the dance form as it’s the main element in the film,” says D'Souza.

D'Souza said in a Mumbai Mirror interview that he wanted a non-dancer as the main lead of this movie and Khan fit the bill. He also spoke in favour of in Khan's skills, reiterating that he is always up for challenges and is also a good dancer.

Therefore, he is the perfect choice for the role. He also added that the film would be to dance, what Dangal is to sports.

The film's shoot is scheduled to as soon as Khan finishes shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai (sequel to Khan's 2012 blockbuster  Ek Tha Tiger) starring Katrina Kaif.
