|It’s a wonder that Shahrukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt haven’t worked together in a film yet. But that is about to change soon.
Director Karan Malhotra, who won many an accolade for his direction in his debut film Agneepath earlier this year, is now gearing up to direct his second film, to be made under the banner of Dharma Productions of Karan Johar. And from what we hear, Shahrukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt top his wish list.
Karan Malhotra has confirmed to a tabloid that he’s already started work on his next film, about which he will discuss with Karan Johar soon.
Buzz is that the film will be an actioner with lots of stunts and drama. Malhotra is a tough taskmaster and it’s no secret that he did not compromise on the stunts and action sequences of Hrithik Roshan in Agneepath, despite the fact that the star battled with a back injury.
There has also been a rumour that Malhotra’s next film would be a remake of a Bollywood blockbuster, or perhaps a sequel of Agneepath. However, the director has quashed the rumour and stated that the movie is based on an original story idea.
By the way, Sanjay Dutt and Shahrukh Khan were seen together for a fleeting moment in the Om Shanti Om song that featured a slew of celebrities from Bollywood. They are known to be good friends and Shahrukh was the special guest at the Agneepath success bash thrown by Dutt earlier this year. It was in that party that the scuffle with Shirish Kunder took place. Anyway, no use raking over old coals. It’s time to look ahead and we’re sure the fans would love to see Shahrukh and Sanjay in leading roles in a film.
