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!
