Shah Rukh Khan's film with Tanu Wed Manu Franchise director, Aanand L Rai, has been in the news since a while. The film, which will feature SRK essaying the character of a little person, is expected to go on floors in December 2016.

Like Raanjhana and the Tanu Weds Manu Franchise, renowned writer, Himanshu Sharma will pen the script of the film. Speaking about the same, the writer says,

Though initial reports indicated that the film will revolve around the love story of a little person, set in a small town of India, writer Himanshu Sharma says it is too early to speak about plot. However, according to him, the film's USP is not just about that character. He explained,

"Well I would like to leave the details for the screen. But yes, it is a romantic drama and yes there is a character of a little person. I would like to however believe that it's not the USP. You will be done with it in 30 seconds or may be 1 minute. How much can you dwell over that character? You have to come down to the main story and that's what I am fighting for. I hope I am able to write as good a film as I would like to see on screen. I am in the exploring phase right now."
