SRK (1) âÂ£ï¸ÂðŸ’¥ Inspiration. Obsession. Idol. My single biggest love at the movies through my entire childhood and teenage years, leading up the highlight of my 2 assistant director experiences - Swades and KANK - which was that I got to be in the presence of Shah Rukh Khan. And when I got very lucky, to be a stand in with him for blocking scenes â˜Âï¸Â(This photo is framed and put up in my house by my mother who considered it the height of my achievement obviously) The joys of those early years when I was an AD, fresh in the industry, interacting with everyone for the first time - sometimes I wish I could go back to the innocence of that time... #lookingback #connectingthedots #SRKlove
SRK has been consciously away from signing in any film as of now and is enjoying quality time with family and his role as a producer. Rumours were abuzz that he will collaborate with Rajkumar Hirani for a movie.
SRK had recently shared in an interview with Rajeev Masand that he wanted to do an action film. He said, "I don't even have a film, I was doing one but it fell out. Normally, I have my next film lined up while am doing one. This time I don't have any film. I have not signed any film yet but I have been hearing a lot of stories, not just for me but for production as well. I don't know. I want to do an action film, I want to do a fun film."
After much delay Brahmastra is scheduled to release at theatres on December 4, 2020.
