Shah Rukh Khan has finally started shooting for Imtiaz Ali's The Ring opposite Anushka Sharma. The actor has two releases this year -Fan released on April 15, 2016, and Dear Zindagi which is set to be released on November 25 this year.
Even Raees was about to hit the screens this year on Eid alongside Salman Khan's Sultan. But, that has been pushed to next year in January 2017. Now, the actor has planned to keep his promise of doing three films in the coming year. Talking about it to a popular daily, King Khan stated, "I've already begun work on Imtiaz Ali’s next The Ring and we wrap by October. I start Aanand L Rai’s film in November."
This will be a record for Baadshah! Releasing three or more films a year was maintained by Akshay Kumar until now. A source said, "Raees releases on Republic Day next year. The Ring is expected to have a mid-2017 release. The makers are planning to release it right after the IPL next year. As for Aanand’s film where he plays a dwarf, SRK and team are looking at two dates: Diwali and Christmas. However, in all probability, Rai’s film will release on Christmas, as Aamir Khan has not booked that date yet, making it three releases, as promised."
