It is said SRK will be seen playing the role of Rakesh Sharma and the film was supposed to go on floors from September but after SRKs concern that he wants to specifically concentrate on Zero right now so the film has been pushed for some time.
Reports are also that Bhumi Pednekar who was last seen in super hit film Toilet Ek Prem Katha will be starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan in this film. This will be her first collaboration with the superstar, talking about Bhumi then is also going to star in Karan Johar's film Takht.
