Director Aanand L. Rai, who’s delivered superhits and universally loved films like Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Raanjhanaa, has said that his upcoming project with SRK in the lead is his most ambitious one yet.
Speaking on why he thinks that his upcoming film is his biggest one till date, Rai was quoted by a leading daily saying, “Film with Khan saab is my most ambitious project because he is the main casting of the film. I don’t think there is anyone who can play the character better than him. I am fortunate I got Shah Rukh Khan for this film.” Rai added, “Right now the work is going on the story. I am totally in sync with Khaan saab, we are in touch. I am writing a story which we all should be proud of. We hope to start the film by the end of the year.”
It’s common knowledge by now that the superstar will be seen in the role of a dwarf in Rai’s film. However, Rai also revealed that that isn’t what the film is all about. “People are thinking it is a film about a short man but I will say it has a very tall story. It is a challenging, entertaining story. As an actor, it is a challenging role for him. As a maker, it is an important film for me. It will be fun raising the bar and when you finally get Shah Rukh Khan, you wouldn’t want to lose the opportunity.”
After hearing Aanand L. Rai’s thoughts on the film, we’re super-excited for what both he and SRK have in store for us.
