Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali hopes to start his next film this year. Reportedly this film will feature Shahrukh Khan in the lead roles. However Imtiaz and the "Fan" star have not confirmed the collaboration yet.
There were also reports that Shah Rukh would be seen playing a turbaned Sikh tourist in the yet-to-be-titled comedy.
“Next film, unless I really sign and finalise, I can’t really talk about it. I am not supposed to say anything about that and I shouldn’t be… I feel whatever I am saying needs to first happen and then I should say it rather than be predictive,” Imtiaz told reporters here today when asked about the same.
There were also reports that the film will star actress Anushka Sharma opposite Shah Rukh. When asked when does he plan to start the film, Imtiaz said, “How do I know? I hope this year. But I can only say after things are (finalised)”.
Imtiaz Ali has recently directed Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer “Tamasha” which received a lot of acclaim.
