Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan recently received an honorary doctorate degree from Melbourne-based La Trobe University for his contributions and efforts towards underprivileged children and women's empowerment through Meer Foundation besides his achievements in the Indian entertainment industry. During his stay in Melbourne, the actor spoke with Rajeev Masand, talking about his break from Bollywood and rumours surrounding his next project.
Expressing his desire to star in an action film, SRK stated, "I have not signed any film. I have been hearing a lot of stories actually not just for me, just for production and so on. I don't know myself, I wanted to do an action film, a fun film. But I have not given it a thought, I'm ok actually." He further quipped that he wants to kick some ass and do some box bit. "I want to do an action film. Want to kick some ass, do some box bit and one-liners. That's the struggle, nobody writes an action film for me," the Zero actor added.
While there is buzz that the actor will be seen in Farah Khan directorial Satte Pe Satta remake, there are also several other reports claiming that the actor is in talks with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Rajkumar Hirani, Madhur Bhandarkar and Aditya Chopra. In fact, it was recently reported that his production house Red Chillies Entertainment has bagged the rights of the Spanish show, Money Heist, which is currently in its third season. When asked if he's turning the Spanish show into a Hindi feature film, he dismissed the reports. However, he claimed that he is open to doing a film or series for Netflix. “Nothing’s been offered to me but I am a television actor. To me, platforms don’t matter," SRK signed off by saying.
