A few months ago, it was announced that Shah Rukh Khan is set to team up with Alia Bhatt for director Gauri Shinde’s yet-untitled next. Immediately after the film’s announcement, the unusual casting raised many eyebrows. Soon reports of the film getting shelved started doing the rounds. But Karan Johar, who is producing the film, is amused with such unsubstantiated stories, and instead says that he is looking forward to teaming up with old friend Shah Rukh again.
“I am very excited [to work with Shah Rukh]. The casting of the film is very unusual, and that’s why, of course, there has been a lot of speculation about what that film is about. But I have left it to Gauri to tell the world what it is about when it comes out,” says Karan.
In fact, the film-maker has no clue what resulted in the rumours about the film getting shelved. He says, “I really don’t know where all these rumours came from. That film is very much on track, and we are starting it in the middle of January with a non-stop schedule. All of us are very excited to make that movie,” says Karan, who recently filmed part of his next directorial venture — featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma — in London, UK, in a long shooting schedule.
