I know it's not in the realm of possibility but, in my opinion, Mahira Khan is Shahrukh Khan's perfect opposite at this point and time.. She was great in Raees, even though her role was minimal. The fact is she doesn't fade in the background in Shahrukh's presence. Somehow she makes him look even better than he already does while retaining her own on screen strong presence. I've watched all SRK's films over and over again, no female co-star, to date, has been able to shine a light of their own next to SRK. He outshines them all! He becomes the singular focus of the film, no matter who the female heroine is, everything and everybody else becomes white noise when standing next to Shahrukh! It'd be fantastic if Mahira could co-star in his next film, it could be magical Or she could prove me totally wrong It would be great to test it though.
I loved her too but I think we have to accept that it's just not going to happen. Damn politics!
WAIT, WHAT! Shahrukh Khan To Step Into Akshay Kumar's Shoes For Jolly LLB 3?
At the success press conference of Akshay Kumar starrer Jolly LLB 2, the makers had announced that Jolly LLB 3 is in the pipeline. Well, now it looks like they are planning to make the franchise more bigger. If the grapevine is to be believed then director Subhash Kapoor is keen on casting Shahrukh Khan in Jolly LLB 3.
A source close to the film was quoted saying to DNA, "Right now the script is not ready but the makers definitely want to take the successful franchise forward and make a third installment. Subhash wants to take a small break before he starts scripting that. They are happy with how the sequel has performed in the box office and are keen to cast Shah Rukh Khan for Jolly LLB 3. The director even approached SRK for Jolly LLB role which was finally done by Arshad Warsi. He has many concepts for Jolly LLB series and wants SRK to cast in at least one. But he will only finalise it after the team returns from break."
Will SRK agree to play a lawyer for the first time on the big screen? Guess we will have to wait and watch. The superstar already has his platter full with films including Imtiaz Ali's tentatively titled 'The Ring' and Aanand L Rai's next.
Talking about Khiladi Kumar, the actor too has a packed schedule with films like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, 2.0, Padman and Salman Khan-Karan Johar's next production. It would be quite interesting to see how he reacts if SRK indeed ends up replacing him in the flick!
CONFIRMED! After Tubelight, Shah Rukh Khan will do a cameo in Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai
Salman and Shah Rukh Khan coming together for a film is nothing less than a dream-come-true for Bollywood fans. While this happened quite a bit in the ’90s, it has now become a rare occurrence thanks to their changing equation. So when we first heard about SRK’s cameo in Tubelight, we were elated beyond comprehension. Karan Arjun finally aa gaye on the big screen! Nobody cares that it’s a cameo. The fact that the two Khans are coming together for a film is reason enough to rejoice!
Yes, you are reading it right. Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo in the film is definitely happening. Not much is known about the kind of character he will play, but given the fact that he is close to both Salman and YRF, such a development doesn’t surprise us at all. He was supposed to be a part of Sultan as well and we told you how his portions were also shot. But later YRF decided to do away with it. That obviously broke our hearts. Salman is shown as a SRK fan in Sultan as well and when he gets to do commercials, thanks to his surge in popularity after winning matches, he gets to meet SRK. That was supposedly the plot of the Raees actor’s cameo in the film. But that got canned. Tubelight’s cameo has made us very excited and now he will be seen in Tiger Zinda Hai as well. Things can’t get better than this, can it?
We have already told you that Salman Khan has wrapped up the first schedule of Tiger Zinda Hai in Austria. Katrina Kaif was also a part of the schedule but she wrapped her portions pretty early and returned to shoot Jagga Jasoos again. Stay tuned to Bollywoodlife to know all about SRK’s cameo in Tiger Zinda Hai.
Funny how times change, mid 90-00s its was Sallu who used be the greasy one and now its the total opposite... It comes over as too ingratiating and servile-ish IMHO but if it helps him getting wider audience reach why not.
Queishi you mean srk is doing salman movie because to reach wider audience where srk movie has no reach. Kuch bhi. Ce has more footfall than all salman movie except BB and sultan since 2010. HNY had 2 cr footfall more than ready and equal to dabang 2. There is not much difference in footfall between HNY and other salman movie like bodyguard prdp etc. it is srk who is doing movie like fan dear zindagi etc which have limited appeal. He is doing comeo since 1996 army for sridevi, dushman duniya ka for Mehmood, gaj gamini for ms Hussain hay ram for kamal Hassan and even in hey baby. Sathiya, hdjpk, boothnath etc.

Shah Rukh Khan, under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment is working on a script about the courage and heroics of Indian army and Air Force...
After Karan Johar mesmerized us and made us proud of our Indian defence by showcasing a never seen or hear before story of India’s war with Pakistan, under water around 1971, it’s time for Shah Rukh Khan to follow the suit. According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Shah Rukh Khan, under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment is working on a script about the courage and heroics of Indian army and Air Force. The script in question is based on one of the India’s most successful missions, “Operation Khukri”, in Sierra Leone in 2000.
While it is not known whether Shah Rukh Khan will play a role in the film as the reports suggested the script is still being worked on and cast will be finalised later. But it will be great to Shah Rukh Khan donning a defence costume after Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Main Hoon Na, Veer Zaara, Bhootnath, Army and his TV series Fauji. These films and TV series are the proof that he looks great in uniform and will do full justice to the role of an Army or an Air Force official.
Talking about the film, the source stated, “It has been researched extensively and will be mounted on a really large scale. It will be a true depiction of a massive military operation and will celebrate our heroes. The director and cast are being finalised, the film will roll later this year.” The project is being developed in association with Azure Entertainment and will be among the most expensive films Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment has ever produced. The source further added, “It will be shot in real locations in Africa with some real armed combat battle scenes.”
