Shah Rukh Khan last appeared in Aanand L Rai’s Zero, which was released in December 2018 and did not perform well at the box office. Since then SRK has been on a break from acting, spending quality time with family and focusing on his production company, Red Chillies Entertainment. Meanwhile, some reports have been doing the rounds that Shah Rukh Khan has signed Ali Abbas Zafar’s action flick, to be produced under the Yash Raj Films (YRF) banner. As per an entertainment portal, this movie would also mark YRF’s 50th anniversary in 2020 and would be “one of the biggest films to hit screens in 2020.”
It’s always nice to know that in my absence & behind my back , I have surreptitiously signed so many films that even I am not aware of!! Boys & girls I do a film when I say I am doing it....otherwise it’s just post truth.— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) September 8, 2019
However, denying all these reports, SRK took to Twitter and wrote, “It’s always nice to know that in my absence and behind my back, I have surreptitiously signed so many films that even I am not aware of!! Boys & girls I do a film when I say I am doing it....otherwise it’s just post truth.”
