During the past week Shah Rukh Khan’s impatient fans have been eagerly clinging to the news that Shah Rukh Khan has said yes to a film entitled Pathan starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, to be directed by Siddharth Anand.
However there has been no official announcement on this issue from any of the parties involved.Sources tell this writer that there is absolutely no clarity regarding this project. Another project being talked about is Tamil director Atlee Kumar’s Hindi debut which would apparently feature Shah Rukh Khan in a double role.
This project too is only hearsay.Or as a friend of Shah Rukh Khan told this writer, “It’s all up in the air right now. No confirmation not even any verification of the authenticity of these projects.”
The only project that Shah Rukh has actually given the nod to is with director Raj Kumar Hirani and that now awaits the final draft of the script. I also know with certainty that Shah Rukh Khan has been in talks with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a possible project. But again any sign of locking in the project is far from the truth.
A very close friend of Shah Rukh reveals, “He has said maybe to many but not yes to anyone as yet.”
