Fans of Shah Rukh Khan wouldn't have to wait too long now to see their favourite return to the silver screen. The actor's hiatus may be soon coming to an end as rumours suggest that he has already signed his next project with ace director Ali Abbas Zafar, which, much like the filmmaker's most films, will be an action movie with a whole lot of emotions involved. Shah Rukh has always loved Ali's work and the two have expressed their desires to collaborate with each other several times. Now, latest development on the yet to be titled film reveals that Ali might be roping in Katrina Kaif as the female lead of his film.
Katrina and Ali have been very good friends. The two have worked together thrice in the past - first in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan back in 2011 and in Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat, both opposite Salman Khan. A source close to Katrina and Ali stated, "Katrina and Ali are a winning combination. They have delivered blockbusters in the past and he’s quite keen on working with her again. There will most likely be an official announcement on this project soon.” The insider added that the film will be shot on a huge scale and is slated to hit screens next year.
If all goes well, the upcoming film will mark Katrina and Shah Rukh's third collaboration together as well. The two were first seen together in 2012's Jab Tak Hai Jaan and later starred in last year's Zero with Anushka Sharma. But as of now, Katrina is working with Rohit Shetty in Sooryavanshi. She also has Bang Bang Reloaded and Tiger 3 in the pipeline for her. On the other hand, Shah Rukh is spending quality time with his family. He's reported to play a special cameo in Ayan Mukerji's Bhramastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. He was also earlier reported to have signed a film with Sanju director, Rajkumar Hirani, however, no announcements have been made yet.
