Despite several reports floating about that the Devdas duo will come together for a film, sources close to the director deny any such claims.
Much as he would like, Shah Rukh Khan is not likely to work with his ‘Dev Babu’ in the near future. That’s what SRK calls Sanjay Leela Bhansali ever since they worked together in Devdas.
After a slew of under-performing films in recent times, Shah Rukh is keen to work with SLB. To everyone’s embarrassment, SRK’s marketing team seems to be jumping the gun. The team is putting out stories about the superstar and the director coming together.
It all started after SLB paid Gauri Khan’s new showroom a courtesy visit. The brief visit was splashed on media platforms. A member from Bhansali’s team says, “There are reports all over the place about how SRK is teaming up for a film with Bhansali; and that Kangana Ranaut will be paired opposite SRK. First, there is no project with Shah Rukh Khan at the moment. So where is the question of Kangana Ranaut or any other heroine?”
There are also reports that Shah Rukh Khan is in consideration to play poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi in a film to be produced by Bhansali. People close to the project describe these reports as “baseless.” Perhaps SRK should just take it easy and not allow his wishlist to be made public?
