Shah Rukh Khan is currently busy wrapping up his new film with Aditya Chopra, and next, he will be ready to roll with Katrina Kaif as his leading lady in Rohit Shetty’s drama.
The shoot for Shetty’s film, also starring Varun Dhawan, will start towards the end of March. An industry insider reveals, “SRK and Varun will play brothers. Word has it that Katrina Kaif has been approached for the lead alongside SRK, while Kriti Sanon will be paired with Varun. The story is loosely based on Hum (1991), but by no means a remake. It’s the story of two brothers.”
While Katrina messaged saying “no” to being part of the film, the insider reveals that announcements about the project will be made in March.
The source adds that the makers are also looking for a stellar supporting cast for the film. “They need over 10 character actors to add to the massive star cast. They will be seen in supporting roles, but they will each have strong, impactful parts to play in the film,” says the source.
The schedule of the film will last for about three months and will be shot across Mumbai and Goa. The makers, we’re told, are aiming for a Christmas release this year — the time of the year that sees SRK’s big annual release. We tried contacting Shetty, but he remained unavailable for comment.
