Another project of SRK that has been in the news is Atlee’s next directorial. The film has been doing the rounds of social media for a while, now the latest reports suggest that film will star Nayanthara opposite Shah Rukh.

Atlee has proved his directorial mettle with films like Bigil, Mersal and others but this will be his maiden Bollywood film. Rumours suggest that the project has been in the making for a year now and the film’s team has started work on the pre-production of the yet-untitled film. The film has been kept tightly under wraps and will be announced at an opportune moment.

Nayanthara (L) is rumoured to make her Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee's (R) film.
