Shah Rukh Khan clarifies he hasn't been approached by Karan Johar for film with Ranbir Kapoor
Shah Rukh Khan has clarified that he is not working with Karan Johar on a film alongside Ranbir Kapoor. He also refuted reports of an international project.
For a lot of Hindi film buffs, Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar continue to be Bollywood's dream team. The two last worked together in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, in which Khan appeared for a cameo. Ever since the cameo, reports about them collaborating on another project have been doing the rounds. Khan, however, has denied involvement in any of Johar's upcoming projects, as per DNA.
It was being reported that the filmmaker had approached the actor for a film alongside Ranbir Kapoor. The two were supposed to play brothers in the movie, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was being considered to play Khan's love interest. Apart from this film, there were rumours about the two actors being approached for an international project titled VIY: Journey to India. Khan denied being a part of any of these projects.
He reiterated that the last venture he was approached for by Johar was Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Before that, the filmmaker pitched a film to him that was being produced under his banner. The film was eventually dropped because of being too expensive to produce and nothing could come out of it.
The two have dished out films like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai among others. Khan is currently promoting his next outing, Jab Harry Met Sejal, with Anushka Sharma.
Tahir Raj Bhasin's layered performance reminds one of what Shah Rukh Khan could have achieved had he been given the luxury of six hours of runtime to build a character and live through the conflict.
Holding out for a hero: Why do actresses still need to depend on who the male lead is? Why can't they be the heroes?
Taapsee Pannu's recent revelation that other actresses rejected Haseen Dillruba because they were not sure of 'the hero' only exposes the gross dependence of leading ladies on how 'saleable' their male counterparts are.
Having been signed on by Zoya Akhtar to play the male lead in her indigenous adaptation of the Archie comic universe, Agastya Nanda, son of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan’s daughter Shweta, is being fully tutored into the art of facing the camera.
