Shah Rukh Khan to star in Atlee’s next after Vijay's Bigil?

The film is said to be an original masala entertainer and not a remake of Atlee’s previous projects

Published: 15th October 2019

Shah Rukh Khan is in talks to star in Tamil director Atlee’s upcoming next after Bigil, reports claim. The film is expected to be based on an original script and will not be a remake of one of Atlee’s previous projects. There are contrasting reports about who will be producing the film. While some reports suggest that it will be bankrolled by SRK's Red Chillies Ent, a few others claim that the film will be produced by Karan Johar, under his Dharma Productions banner.

Recently, at an event, Shah Rukh said that he is working on “two-three scripts” and will announce his next project when he is “ready.” He was also seen seated to director Atlee in an IPL cricket match.

The Fan actor also shared the trailer of Bigil on Twitter, calling the film, “Chak De! (India) on steroids.”

Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s Zero. The actor was expected to star in Saare Jahaan Se Achcha – a biopic on Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma – but dropped out of the project earlier this year. He was also speculated to star in Don 3 and an untitled film with Ali Abbas Zafar.

Shah Rukh’s film with Atlee is expected to be a commercial masala entertainer. An official announcement is awaited regarding the project. 

Red Chillies Entertainment recently produced the Netflix series Bard of Blood. The production house is also developing a zombie horror show titled Betaal with the streaming platform.
