Deepika Padukone And Shah Rukh Khan May Reunite For Siddharth Anand’s Next
Fans have been waiting long for Bollywood’s royalty Shah Rukh Khan to announce his next. While the superstar is producing some great content for the OTT platforms, SRK hasn’t exactly confirmed or denied the rumours about him collaborating with notable directors like Raj Kumar Hirani in whose film he might (or might not) play the part of an immigrant. And it seems like there is another addition to the list since his last film, Zero. According to Pinkvilla, Shah Rukh might star in star in Yash Raj Films’ next venture. Wait it gets better; it is also being reported that none other than, Deepika Padukone is being cast opposite him.
Deepika–who currently seems to be on a roll with her latest announcement about pairing up with Prabas—will hopefully reunite with his Om Shaanti Om star after they did Happy New Year and Chennai Express together. And they might do so for ‘War’ fame director Siddharth Anand. A source was even quoted saying, “Deepika has locked her dates for a big YRF film. She will mostly be romancing Shah Rukh Khan in Siddharth Anand’s big actioner. The production house has been in talks with the actress for the film but she is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
While the actress has not sealed the deal, it is being said that she has liked what she read and will work around her dates for the same. “Because of the Covid 19 scare around the country, they are yet to lock in dates for the schedules of the film. Once that is done, Deepika will work around her date schedule for the film. Right now, she has just been approached for the film and she has liked the script as well. It’s a powerful role for the female lead as well,” the source added.
Needless to say, it will be exciting if it’s true considering the great chemistry and bond that SRK and DP share. Not just this, apparently YRF has also roped in Vicky Kaushal for a comedy film and is planning to announce these projects among many others as a part of their 50 years celebrations coming next month. The studio is going to mark its golden jubilee in the biz on on late filmmaker Yash Chopra’s birthday on September 27.
