A few weeks ago, we reported that Tamil director Atlee is going to collaborate with Shah Rukh Khan for his next directorial. It will be an out and out Masala action film and Atlee will make his Bollywood debut with the film. According to the reports, Shah Rukh Khan's production house will pay around 30 crores to Atlee for this directorial venture.
As soon as the reports of Atlee and SRK's collaboration came out, the fans were quite excited and crazy to know more about the film. However, neither SRK nor Atlee confirmed the news with their statement over the rumours. However, it looks like the film is definitely happening and we have got a hint from a recent event of Atlee's new film Bigil.
In an event of Atlee's next Diwali scheduled release Bigil starring Tamil superstar Vijay, fellow director Harish Shankar hinted towards Atlee's collaboration with SRK. Harish Shankar said, “The news is coming out. I don’t know how immediately it’s going to happen but I am praying to all the gods to make it happen that Atlee sir is going to direct King Khan (aka) SRK. Being a huge fan of SRK, I am waiting for this combo so that I can also come for that function and see SRK. I am a huge fan of King Khan.”
While replying to it, Shah Rukh Khan gave a nice smile and this smile was showing his confirmation to the project. Reports are that Shah Rukh Khan may announce his next film on his birthday 2nd November and will schedule the film release around Diwali 2020.
