Imtiaz Ali is working with Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma for his next untitled film. Earlier there have been romours that film has been titled The Ring. Later on it was said that it is titled Rehnuma and The Ring was just a working title.
However Imtiaz Ali has denied all such reports and has revealed that film’s title has not been decided yet. In an interview to Indian Express, he said, “It is neither. At least that I can say. It cannot be either of the two.”
He also talked about his love for theatre. “Theatre is my origin. I have spent so much time there and I feel mentally, I am still there. I never disconnected from the theatre and might have accidentally learnt from it. So, this is a natural place for me to be in,” the director says while sharing his excitement about attending a theatre festival in the city.
Last year, during promotions of Tamasha, Imtiaz had expressed his desire to cast Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in a play. The director says that is still a wish and hopefully one day he will fulfil it. “We three had talked about it but I don’t know when that will happen. The kind of theatre I qualify in is not a quick fix. It is not a bhelpuri chat. It will take time. So, when they have time and everyone has time only then it can happen.”
The untitled SRK film is set to release on 11 August 2017.
