There is widespread speculation going on upon Shahrukh Khan and his possible upcoming film. Numerous leading Indian publications first reported that Shahrukh Khan will be essaying the role of Rakesh Sharma in an upcoming biopic being helmed by Mahesh Mathai.
The shoot of the film titled Saare Jahan Se Accha preponed and the makers were on the lookout for a female lead. The film was scheduled to hit the floors in February.
Bollywood Hungama then reported that Shah Rukh recently met with the makers of the film and they decided to amicably part ways. The publication quoted a source as saying “After Zero’s performance, Shah Rukh seems to be reconsidering his projects and way forward”
Rumors regarding Shahrukh Khan’s next possible film started to spread like wildfire. While some speculated that Shahrukh Khan had left the Rakesh Sharma biopic for doing Don 3 instead, news broke out that Farhan Akthar has clarified that Don 3 is not on the cards as of yet. This again led to more speculation regarding which project will SRK do now?
Ultimately, it has now been reported that Shahrukh Khan is not quitting Saare Jahan Se Accha. This latest news has been broken by Cinestaan. Zoom Tv then confirmed that folks at Cinestaan contacted Saare Jahaan Se Accha writer Anjum Rajabali, who straightaway denied the report of Shah Rukh Khan quitting the movie. They wrote that in a text message, Anjum replied, “Its fake news”
Indian publications have since been writing that Shahrukh Khan will be doing Saare Jahan Se Accha as confirmed by Anjum Rajabali.
However, it appears that there has been a misunderstanding. Epk reached out to Anjum Rajabali, who has clarified that Shahrukh Khan has indeed quit the project. He is actually no longer a part of Saare Jahan Se Accha.
Previously, Shahrukh Khan’s latest outing Zero failed miserably in its domestic market while it also did not do well in Pakistan. In addition, Shahrukh Khan’s recent films Dilwale, Raees and Jab Harry Met Sejal have underperformed at the Indian Box office. Reportedly, Shahrukh Khan is now more vigilant about which film to choose next and is therefore taking his time to consider his options. Nevertheless, the superstar has a devoted fan following, all of whom are waiting in anticipation to finally hear about Shahrukh Khan’s latest possible project.
