Sriram Raghavan, who directed Ayushmann Khurrana in AndhaDhun, has refuted reports of narrating a script to Shah Rukh Khan, a news agency reports. During his interview, Sriram told the agency that SRK liked AndhaDhun and invited him for a meeting but he has not pitched a script to the actor.
However, Sriram said that he will “definitely” approach SRK if he has a suitable script. He has SRK’s phone number and can “always” approach him but needs the “right script” first.

"I have not pitched a script. I just met him (Shah Rukh Khan). He had liked AndhaDhun and invited me over. We had a chat. I told him if I have something I'll definitely come to him. I've got his number now and I can always approach him. I would love to see him in my world of cinema but I need to get the right script," Sriram told the news agency.
Several reports claimed last year that SRK had approved of the idea that Sriram Raghavan had told him about but would take the final decision after hearing the final script narration. Nevertheless, the SRK-Sriram Raghavan film is clearly not happening at the moment.

AndhaDhun, meanwhile, co-starred Tabu and Radhika Apte and opened to positive reviews and excellent box office collections. The film won several awards as well.
Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Zero and has not announced any other film as yet.
