These days Shahrukh Khan is busy in back to back films. In January 2024, he is going to start a film named King with daughter Suhana Khan. After that he will work in Tiger Vs Pathaan. Apart from this, there have also been reports of her doing an action film with Karan Johar. Meanwhile, the news of his signing a new film came out. It was told that Shahrukh is going to start work on it soon. Which seems to be fake news.
A social media handle broke the news that Shahrukh Khan is going to do a film with ‘Raees’ fame director Rahul Dholakia. This project is on the verge of being locked. Katrina Kaif will play the lead role with Shahrukh Khan in this film. Apart from acting in this film, Shahrukh will also produce it. However, this news does not seem correct from any angle.
The first thing is that Shahrukh Khan is currently enjoying pan-India level success. He wants to work only with those directors who attract a large section of the audience. For example, Atlee, Rajkumar Hirani, Siddharth Anand. For this reason he refused to work in ‘Don 3’. Because that film had no scope of becoming a big hit like ‘Pathan’-‘Jawaan’. This is being said on the basis of the box office performance of the last two films of that franchise.
However, regarding ‘Raees’, Shahrukh Khan fans believe that it was a pure masala picture. It could have been a huge hit. Just the timing of its release was wrong. Therefore she could not perform as per expectation. Every now and then, the clip of Shahrukh Khan coming out of the smoke from ‘Raees’ keeps going viral on social media. Perhaps this is why the news came out that Shahrukh is going to do a film with Rahul Dholakia again.
Rahul Dholakia is a classy type filmmaker. He made the National Award winning film ‘Parzaniya’. Recently, he was directing the biopic ‘Shabash Mitthu’ of Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj with Taapsee Pannu. But due to some reasons he left the film midway, which was completed by Srijit Mukherjee.
Katrina Kaif and Shahrukh Khan worked together in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and ‘Zero’. Shahrukh did a cameo in ‘Tiger 3’, Katrina was the leading lady of that film. Katrina recently gave an interview about her upcoming films. In this he talked with Ali Abbas Zafar about various projects including action films. But there was no mention of the film with Shahrukh Khan anywhere. In such a situation, no one knows where this talk about Shahrukh, Katrina and Rahul’s film came from.
