A couple of days back, filmmaker R Balki was reportedly in a closed-door meeting with Shahrukh Khan for some hours. TOI had reported in March that Balki would be working with SRK in his next. The same report also stated that the movie would bring Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan together in an unconventional way. But the bearded filmmaker had laughed off the news report back then.
Now hear that Shahrukh Khan has asked Balki to go ahead and plan his filming. Whether or not these plans include Big B is uncertain. On his part, Amitabh Bachchan has said that he would be doing a movie with Balki soon. But don’t know if these are 2 different movies or one and the same. When asked whether he’d start shooting with SRK shortly, Balki said, “Nope”. However, sources indicate there is indeed an improvement in that space. Balki decided to remain silent.
Shahrukh Khan will also start Farah Khan’s film Happy New Year on Sept. 2 in Dubai.
