The actor will apparently work with both Atlee and Rajkumar Hirani, but has not made any formal announcement.
Rumour has it that after Shah Rukh Khan met South director Atlee regarding the March dates of his film, Khan is also talking to Rajkumar Hirani for April dates for his next venture.
“It is pucca (confirmed). Shah Rukh has said yes to Hirani, and they are working out dates in April. It is not clear whether SRK will first shoot with Atlee and then shoot with Hirani, or the other way around,” claims an industry source.
Khan’s silence on this matter is proving to be increasingly stressful for both the Hirani as well as the Atlee camp, which want the actor to make the announcement at the soonest to enable them to tom-tom the news as well.
“It is actually very stressful for the people around the filmmakers to hold their excitement until Shah Rukh decides to make the announcement. Though he has verbally confirmed doing both the projects, he has not made it official. This is why everyone is putting out as many details out as possible, as they feel they might just miss the bus,” adds the source.
