Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is currently gearing up for his forthcoming Imtiaz Ali’s release ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ with Anushka Sharma.
After a few promotional stints by the actor in Ahmedabad, and his meeting with the Chief Minister of Gujarat for ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, Shah Rukh has resumed work on filmmaker Aanand L Rai’s film, where he essays the character of a dwarf. Anushka Sharma plays the role of a mentally challenged, whereas Katrina Kaif plays herself in this Aanand L Rai film.
The three had earlier starred together in Yash Chopra's swansong, 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'.
According to a leading tabloid, Shah Rukh Khan will groove on veteran Shashi Kapoor’s iconic peppy song ‘Humko Tum Pe Pyaar Aaya,’ from the classic 1965 film ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile,’ which featured beautiful actress Nanda opposite Shashi Kapoor.
The tabloid reported, “SRK will be seen dancing to the classic from Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965). It's an amusing sequence.”
While in the original song Kapoor is seen dancing lively amidst the backdrop of nature’s beauty, it would be interesting to see Shah Rukh groove on the same beats.
Earlier, it had been reported that usage of VFX would be done to get the desired dwarf character on Shah Rukh. However, a source has revealed some insights about his looks.
The source said, “The makers will not superimpose SRK's face on a dwarf actor. They will shoot using Forced Perspective, a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It will make SRK look shorter with the added effect of oversized costumes and shoes, that will add to the desired look."
The film is slated for a Christmas 2018 release....
