SRK stuck between Rakesh Sharma and Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Imagine having to choose between two exceptional films and directors. Shah Rukh Khan has been put in a spot where he has to choose between a film in which the perfectionist Aamir Khan recommended his name, and a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie.
Shah Rukh Khan had attended an event on behalf of Aamir Khan when the latter fell ill. Aamir returned the favor by recommending Shah Rukh’s name for the movie “Salute”, a film about the life of an astronaut directed by Rakesh Sharma. Aamir is reportedly busy with a Mahabharata franchise. In the meantime, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had spoken to Shah Rukh about his new venture.
According to a source, “Salute will be interesting for SRK, because he was seen at NASA for the movie “Swades”. This will be an extension of a career he left off, to return to his roots in “Swades”. But then, the film requires a lot of research and seriousness that Aamir would have lent to it. SRK has his own way of approaching his characters. “Swades” got SRK a lot of accolades as an actor, which is why he’s keen on “Salute”. But at the same time, a Bhansali film isn’t what he can ordinarily reject.”
The actor is in a tricky spot right now and will have to make a decision that will be better for his career. Either way, his fans will be eagerly waiting for his films.
