The film will be produced by Red Chilli Entertainment, Shah Rukh Khan’s production house, along with Rajkumar Hirani. The film’s shooting might begin in April 2022.
An explosive combination though!
A source states that “The filmmaker is keen to cast Shah Rukh and Kajol for his next. They last worked together in Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale (2015), and the pair has given several blockbusters and has an excellent box office track record.”
Further adding to the source, it says, “It’s an exciting combination as Hirani and Kajol have never worked together. Plus, Shah Rukh-Kajol jodi is an explosive combination. And, if Taapsee and Vidya to give their nods to the project, it will be a casting coup! Hirani has given a final narration to the actors.”
“But things are still in the nascent stage and a formal announcement will be made only after everything (dates, remuneration, contract) falls in place. The actors have been asked not to reveal anything”, the source added.
Shah Rukh and Kajol previous films together
They have both worked in films like Karan Arjun, Baazigar, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and My Name is Khan.
However, in Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale (2015), Shah Rukh and Kajol performed extremely well in their last film, given several blockbusters and has an outstanding box office track record.
On the work front, Shah Rukh will next be seen in Pathan, while Kajol’s has worked on Tribhanga, which was released earlier this year on Netflix.
