If word’s to be believed, Aanand L. Rai’s yet untitled next was originally christened Katrina Meri Jaan. The actress, obviously a part of the movie, was also rumoured to be starring as herself. Interestingly, Anushka Sharma, too, is supposed to be a part of the movie.
At the trailer launch of Aanand’s production Shubh Mangal Savdhan, he was asked about his ambitious project and he said, “Right now, we’ve finished a few portions with Shah Rukh Khan, and have completed a song as well. By next month, we’ll probably shoot some portions of Katrina. It will be done both in Mumbai as well as outstation.”
Confirming Anushka’s portions in the movie, Aanand said, “After finishing Katrina’s portions, Anushka’s portions will be shot sometime in October.” On being prodded further, Aanand says with a smile, “You need to wait and watch!”
The movie, which will have Shah Rukh starring as a dwarf, will be the story of a small town guy, who sets out to meet his Bollywood icon. What’s interesting now is that besides Anushka and Katrina, the film will also have a cameo by Salman Khan.
They might be foes-turned-friends, but Shah Rukh made a cameo in Tubelight, and Salman seems to be returning the favour.
Confirming the news, our source says, “A song sequence was being picturised in the Yash Raj Studios. Salman and SRK shared the screen space in this dance sequence, where there were innumerable dancers too. It was amazing to watch both of them acting spontaneously. However, we cannot give away the lyrics of the song. It’s been rendered by ace musician Pritam.”
On condition of anonymity, another source adds, “The film is being shot very aesthetically. SRK is shown as a dwarf and with VFX, watching it on the screen looks utterly magnificent.”
Now with SRK and Salman sharing screen space, will Anushka and Katrina also be in the same frame, after having missed the connection in Jab Tak hai Jaan? Only time will tell....
