Shah Rukh Khan, who is currently filming for Zero, had earlier revealed that he will think of his next project only after he completes Aanand L Rai’s directorial which will wrap in a month. As per a report in Mid-Day, SRK is already in advanced talks with Padmaavat filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next. “Not many know that Shah Rukh and Bhansali have been in talks for long. During a recent meeting, the director narrated his script to him. It is a fictional love story with a period setting. While Shah Rukh has given his nod in principle, the project is facing a road block by way of its female lead. Though the names of a few leading ladies are being thrown around, Bhansali is yet to zero in on an actress," a source revealed to the daily.
Shah Rukh might shoot for Salute from September to November, take a break for the promotions of Zero and then resume Salute early January 2019. Well, we wait for any official confirmation from the actor’s end.
