Their growing bonhomie since January this year has led to speculations that both Shahrukh Khan and Anurag Kashyap are thinking of doing a film together. Now it’s heard that the superstar has indeed greenlit a Kashyap film.
Yes, the duo has warmed up to each other, and their new friendship is the talk of the town. Anurag, who has earlier praised Shahrukh Khan for his talent, has finally made up his mind to start a film with the star. The director will apparently start the project as soon as he is done with his Ranbir Kapoor-starrer, which is yet to go on the floors.
The buzz about Anurag Kashyap and Shahrukh Khan’s friendship started floating around when the director along with his actress wife Kalki Koechlin was seen leaving a party with SRK and Karan Johar. Later, all of them were spotted hanging out at Mannat. Anurag even visited Shahrukh when he was in London last year shooting for Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
It’s even said that Shahrukh actually wanted Anurag to make a film for him. “SRK asked Anurag to make a film for him. Anurag agreed to it but on one condition. The filmmaker told SRK that he would write a film and even narrate it to him but would hand over the bound script only after SRK signed the film,” a source is quoted as saying.
Anurag Kashyap has already joined hands with Shahrukh’s best buddy Karan Johar, and together they are even co-producing a film. As Shahrukh Khan has recently finished working on Chennai Express, we might see him doing some interesting films. SRK is expected to start working on Farah Khan’s Happy New Year soon.
Presently, he’s recovering from a shoulder surgery at Lilavati Hospital.
