The buzz surrounding Aanand L Rai's next with Shah Rukh Khan is growing with every passing day. Not much is known about the film, except for the fact that it will star Shah Rukh in the role of a little person. It has also been reported that the film calls for a double female lead.
News of Rai having finalised Katrina Kaif to play one of the leading ladies has been doing the rounds for a while now. According to the latest reports, the director is keen to cast wither Sonam Kapoor or Alia Bhatt for the second female lead.
A report in a leading daily quotes a source saying:
"He (Aanand L Rai) has had discussions with both Alia and Sonam for the role. He has briefed both of them about the film and the maker will finalise the cast in about 10 days from now."
However, it is interesting to note that both Alia and Sonam are occupied with multiple projects. While Alia is working with Shah Rukh Khan in Gauri Shinde's Walk And Talk, Sonam may not be keen to sign up for a dual lead film - considering the runaway success that was Neerja.
The makers have assured that the cast of this SRK-Rai film will be finalised in next 10 days, following which an official announcement will be made.
