Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, who is reportedly in talks with superstar Shah Rukh Khan for his next, hopes to start the film this year. The director and the “Dilwale” star, however, have not confirmed the collaboration yet. There were reports that Shah Rukh, 50, would be seen playing a turbaned Sikh tourist in the yet-to-be-titled comedy.

“Next film, unless I really sign and finalise, I can’t really talk about it. I am not supposed to say anything about that and I shouldn’t be... I feel whatever I am saying needs to first happen and then I should say it rather than be predictive,” he told reporters here today when asked about the same.

There were also reports that the film will star actress Anushka Sharma opposite Shah Rukh. The “Rockstar” helmer, however, did not divulge any details.

When asked when does he plan to start the film, Imtiaz said, “How do I know? I hope this year. But I can only say after things are (finalised)”. Imtiaz’s last directorial venture was Ranbir Kapoor Deepika Padukone starrer “Tamasha”.
