There are rumors rounds that Shah Rukh Khan has turned down filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie with Kangana Ranaut, but the superstar Shah Rukh Khan doesn’t want anyone to believe the rumors.
Shah Rukh Khan revealed in an interview that he was offered two scripts from Sanjay Leela Bhansali but he hadn’t decided which one he would finally do. The recent reports claimed that the star chose the second script over the one, which Bhansali wanted to make with him and Kangana. May be, due to Kangana’s recent statement on Koffee With Karan 5, that she doesn’t want to work with the Khans as she wants her role to be equal to that of the male actor.
When asked about it, Shah Rukh Khan avoided a direct comment and saying, “Don’t believe what you read online.” Last year, Kangana revealed about a possibility of teaming up with Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She, had added that things were at a nascent stage and would take time to shape up. As for the other script that Shah Rukh has liked more, is apparently the biopic of lyricist-writer Sahir Ludhianvi. It is a well-known fact that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been eyeing to make a film on Ludhianvi and his love story with Punjabi writer Amrita Pritam for a long time.
Shah Rukh has also confirmed that Bhansali has talked about it to him and he is interested in playing the writer onscreen. Reportedly, actor Priyanka Chopra has been approached to play Amrita Pritam’s part.
