Seeing Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, two of the most-loved stars of Bollywood, in one film is the ultimate dream of an average Hindi film watcher. Ever since their much-in-news patch-up, the two have shared screen space quite a few times. While SRK made a special appearance in Salman’s Tubelight (2017), the latter did a cameo in the former’s Zero (2018). Besides that, SRK has also appeared on Salman’s reality TV show, Bigg Boss. But it’s been very long since the two Khans played leading roles in a film together.
But here’s good news – Shah Rukh and Salman may be teaming up for a big film project. According to a report on Filmfare, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is toying with the idea of casting the two in a film. While Bhansali has worked with Salman on Khamoshi: The Musical (1996) and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999), he has collaborated with SRK for Devdas(2002). Now, it seems, the ace director wants to create magic with both the Khans.
On the film front, Bhansali last helmed the epic period drama, Padmaavat. The high-budgeted, big-scaled film starred Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles. While Ranveer played the menacing Sultan Alauddin Khilji, Deepika enacted the role of Rani Padmavati. Shahid portrayed Rajput ruler Maharawal Ratan Singh.
