Shah Rukh Khan’s next project, which is the Rakesh Sharma biopic, has been in the news for a while. The film that was supposed to go on floors from May, has been rescheduled. A report in a Mid-day suggests that the rescheduling of the film could be a way to divert attention from SRK’s last outing Zero, which doomed at the box office. However, a source close to the leading daily had a different story to tell, who said that the decision of preponing Rakesh Sharma biopic was taken to avoid wearing heavy costumes during the summer months.
“The project is expensive. In a bid to ensure that the film doesn’t exceed the budget, Kapur (producer Siddharth Roy Kapur) and Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) find it imperative to start shooting by February. Doing so will help them wrap up the main schedule before summer. Given that certain crucial scenes must be filmed outdoors, the duo felt shooting in the bulky costumes would be impossible during those months,” the source quoted saying. Whatever be the reason, we hope that this film turns out to be good for King Khan as his last three outings have not fared well.
