Shah Rukh Khan-Aanand L Rai's untitled film will reportedly be made at a massive budget of Rs 150 crore.
The film, which will see Shah Rukh Khan essay the character of a little man for the first time in his career, is currently in the pre-production stage. While Aanand L Rai is giving finishing touches to the screenplay, the VFX team at Red Chillies is working overtime to make SRK look convincing as a little man.
A major chunk of money will be spent on the visual effects as Khan wants to make a film that can be presentable on a global level. The movie is said to be a little man's love story and Rai is in talks with two A-List actresses to play the female lead in the film.
While the movie was initially slated to go on floors in December this year, the shooting schedule has been pushed to 2017. One of the major reasons for the delay is extensive research on the VFX front.
An official announcement about the title is expected to be made soon. The movie will hit the big screens during Christmas 2018.
