Shah Rukh Khan — Bollywood’s king of romance — is working with Imtiaz Ali — the director who makes love the primary concern of his films — and together they are working in The Ring. SRK shared the first look of the film on Monday and we really like what we saw.
The actor is walking on a parapet, waving a red flag and trying to get the attention of someone. The shooting is going on in Prague and Shah Rukh shared a long shot. He wrote with his characteristic wit, “Imtiaz said I could post this picture from the sets… & promised there will be some close ups of me in the film too!”
SRK will be joined by his Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi co-star Anushka Sharma in the film. Going by Imtiaz’s earlier films, the story will explore love in all its glory and pain. And don’t go by the name, The Ring is not the Bollywood remake of the cult Hollywood horror film.
SRK had earlier said about The Ring, “The Ring isn’t a young, upbeat love story because I want to play my age. Imtiaz has an interesting take on the love story and hopefully the audience will appreciate it.”
Earlier, Shah Rukh was thronged by his fans on the streets of Prague during the shooting. Pictures and videos made their way to SRK fan clubs, giving us a sneak peek into what was going on during the shooting.
Shah Rukh had earlier wrapped up his Gauri Shinde film Dear Zindagi, also starring Alia Bhatt. He had taken a month off from work to spend time with his family and drop son Aryan at the University of Southern California where he will pursue his graduation. SRK’s Raees is also awaiting release.
