Superstar Shah Rukh Khan refutes reports of him saying no to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s project opposite Kangana Ranaut.
There were reports that Shah Rukh has turned down Bhansali’s movie with Kangana after the Queen actor said that she does not want to work with the Khans as she wants her role to be equal to that of the male actor.
The superstar was expected to share screen space with Kangana. But he reportedly refused to do that. Asked about it, the ‘Raees’ star said: “Don’t believe what you read online.”
Shah Rukh was honoured with the fourth Yash Chopra National Memorial Award on Saturday. The award has been instituted by the philanthropist T. Subbarami Reddy, in association with Anu Ranjan (President, The Indian Television Academy) and Shashi Ranjan (Chairman, Managing Director, ITA School of Performing Arts), in the memory of the late filmmaker Yash Chopra, whose movies like ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’ starred SRK.
When will the audience see Shah Rukh in a Yash Raj project? “I’ve no idea. There is no discussion on a film right now,” said the actor. “Working with Yashji was very personal. I don’t think I am able to express it. I have worked with him for 20 years.
“Right from the time I came here and then we lost him as we walked along the path. Being part of his last shot and his last film… it is very emotional for me,” he added. “He was honest, straightforward and a basic person. Simplicity made him extremely special.”
Directed by filmmaker BR Chopra’s grandson Abhay, the movie is a remake of 1969 film of the same name which starred yesteryear superstar Rajesh Khanna and Nanda.
The remake version featuring Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha is produced by Dharma Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment.
Asked if he would like to be part of the remake SRK said,
“I wanted to do the film when I heard the script. But the team right now doing it is very good.”
