Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film with Aanand L Rai’s next opposite Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif is one of the most-awaited movies of 2018. Even Sara Ali Khan’s debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput ‘Kedarnath’ helmed by Abhishek Kapoor is one of the most talked about movies of 2018.
While there were reports of Shah Rukh Khan’s untitled dwarf film will clash with ‘Kedarnath’, the maker of the movie Abhishek Kapoor has confirmed the release date which will collide with Aanand L Rai’s next.
Sara will reportedly be playing the role of an affluent tourist in the film, whereas Sushant will be seen playing the role of a pitthoo.
Talking about box-office clashes, Shah Rukh had earlier said, ”I think whenever you can, it’s nicer for both films. If you can’t, then you have to release on the same date because when you are looking for alternate dates so that two films don’t come on the same day, you request and talk to each other.
And mostly what we do on the big ticket films is that since our films are expensive and big, my logic has always been that if it (date change) can be done, it’s nice.”
Shah Rukh Khan will not only be playing the role of a dwarf in the film but will also have a double role in it. A source informed a leading media portal, “While everyone knows that Shah Rukh is playing a dwarf in the film, only the unit and cast know that SRK actually has a double role in the movie.
While one of them is a dwarf, the other is an average, regular kind of a common man and he is again played by Shah Rukh. The star will play his usual charming, romantic self in that role as we get to see him sing and dance. Both characters are completely different from each other, strongly performance-oriented and both the leading ladies get a chance to romance SRK.
They have equal lengths in the films and hence they signed up for the film. Anushka will romance the normal guy while Katrina will romance the dwarf. It’s not an experimental film at all but about friendships and love. Shah Rukh has made a five-minute clip of the film and shown it to some of his close friends in B-Town and all have been raving about it.”
