Anurag Basu to direct Shahrukh Khan


Prime VIP

The crashing of his latest film Kites at box office hasn’t deflated director Anurag Basu’s confidence. Rather, he’s now looking forward to projects with bigger stars.

After finalizing Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra to play lead roles in his next film, tentatively titled Silence, Anurag is learnt to be in talks to direct Shahrukh Khan in another project.

The buzz is that Anurag and SRK have already discussed the subject and the latter has given his nod. We hear that SRK will not only act in the film but also produce it.

However, the project is still at a very nascent stage. SRK is presently singularly committed to the sci-fi thriller Ra.One. On the other hand, Anurag is shaping up his next with Ranbir. Only after the two films are complete will Anurag’s movie with SRK roll. Which means latest by the end of this year or next year.
