Shahrukh Khan's last outing Zero bombed at the box office. While the actor was criticised heavily for his performance in the project, King Khan decided to take a step back from acting. He earlier revealed he has not signed another film and feels his priority is to spend time with his family. He mentioned he did not have the heart to do more films for a while and stopped reading scripts too. However, if recent reports are to be believed, a great script has landed in SRK’s hands that he just can’t turn down now. Interestingly so, it won't be a romantic movie but a big action film.
According to sources, he has signed an Ali Abbas Zafar-helmed directorial. "Shahrukh Khan has signed a big actioner which will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. SRK wanted to take up an action-oriented subject as his next and he's finally got the perfect script. The film is going to be mounted on a giant scale and will be one of the biggest films to hit screens in 2020,” a leading Indian portal quoted a source close to Shah Rukh as saying. The insider continued, “The superstar has always been fond of Ali's work and feels he brings out the right mix of action and emotion in his films. On the other hand, Ali has always wanted to collaborate with Shahrukh. Their union was waiting to happen and it's finally happening now." Reportedly, Yash Raj Films will produce the rumoured project and it is expected to go on floors in the beginning of next year. As Ali has launched his own production house and is currently busy with the Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Pandey-starrer Khali Peeli, he needs more time to finish the script of SRK's project. Fingers crossed, it will hopefully be an interesting year ahead for SRK fans!
