Shah Rukh Khan plays a dwarf in director Aanand L Rai’s next project and the superstar says he has already started prepping for the role. This is the first time the 51-year-old actor has collaborated with Rai for a feature film project. Shah Rukh says his look in the movie will be very different from Kamal Haasan’s Appu Raja. “My look is very different from Kamal Hassan’s in Appu Raja. We have done the test, we are through with the trailers. We will be releasing it (look) properly.
“It’s important that the audience accepts our effort. I think we will begin (prep) work in a day or two,” Shah Rukh told PTI when asked if his look will be on the lines of Haasan’s popular character. SRK said that the team will start filming the project next month. “I think we will start shooting from March 21 and it will go on for five-six months or maybe take some more time,” he said
As per reports, the film is titled “Bandhua” but Shah Rukh said the team is yet to zero in on the title. “We are still working on the title. It’s (‘Bandhu’) the name of some other film. But by March 21 we should start working or maybe 10-15 days here and there as I have to finish.
Meanwhile, after hogging enough controversy in India for featuring Pakistani actor Mahira Khan, supporting gangsterism and showing a religion in a bad light, the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees was quite a challenge for the makers. But it looks like the film, despite doing wonders at the Indian box office, has another hurdle to cross. The content of Raees is raising eyebrows in Pakistan too.
