WEB DESK: Bollywood mega star Shah Rukh Khan has confirmed that he will be starring alongside the young Indian starlet Aalia Bhat in Karan Johar’s upcoming production.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, SRK laid bare that he will be sharing screen space with Alia in Gauri Shinde’s directorial while expressing his interest in working with the opposite sex.
“I Iike working with women, so I am doing Gauri’s film with Alia Bhatt as my co-star,” confirmed the Dilwale actor.
The actor also shared details about the film saying, “It is not a typical love story nor is there a hero role but I find Gauri’s filmmaking interesting. I may have a lesser part — not in terms of timing on screen but as a lover — but it’s an interesting role.”
The superstar who will also be seen alongside Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in Raees is currently shooting for the second leg of the film which will be completed in 20 days.
“Raees is a very intense film for me. Shot in a span of some time period, it has me with my gravelly voice (laughs and mouths the famous dialogue from the film in a rough-sounding voice) Baniye ka Dimaag Miyanbhai ki Daring. I have never done a role like that and director Rahul Dholakia is very different,” said the actor, sharing his experience of the upcoming film.
Apart from Raees, SRK is also looking forward for his upcoming Fan, scheduled to release in April.
He said: “Fan is finished, we are done with most of post production and it should be ready in two months for us to watch the first cut.”
“It is a little different film, in a niche zone but has a very popular story line, in fact a thriller story-line. Slowly people will understand what the film is all about,” the actor added.
