Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero, however, the film failed to impress the audience and tanked at the box-office. Although he hasn't announced his next project yet, there have been reports lately that SRK is back with script-reading and might work with Rajkumar Hirani. For the uninitiated, the actor and ace filmmaker were about to work in 2003 film Munna Bhai M.B.B.S but the project eventually went to Sanjay Dutt. Now 15 years later, Shah Rukh and Rajkumar are looking to not miss an opportunity this time. Adding to the excitement, we now hear that SRK, who has been skimming through scripts lately, has shown likingness to Rajkumar's idea of a film and might eventually say yes to it. As reported by a leading daily, if Shah Rukh eventually decides to collaborate with the director, the upcoming project 'might take his career to the next level'.
Earlier too, talking about the same, a leading daily quoted a source as saying, "People have been waiting for Shah Rukh to announce his next project after Zero. Shah Rukh and Hirani have been meeting for a few months to discuss this. It's almost finalised. Hirani will float his own banner and will not [work] with Vidhu Vinod Chopra, as has been the norm. It's a romantic drama with a strong emotional cord running through; it's right up SRK's alley." With Rajkumar back to work post the #MeToo case against him hitting the roadblock, we wonder when he makes an announcement about his next project.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh has been spending quality time with his family while being away from headlining films. Interestingly, the actor who is currently vacationing with family in Maldives, recently voiced the character of Mufasa in the Hindi version of The Lion King.
