Shah Rukh Khan-Raju Hirani Project Awaiting Canadian Clearance

Shah Rukh Khan

A  major portion of Raj Kumar Hirani’s next  project which  stars Shah Rukh Khan as an illegal  immigrant is to be shot in Canada. The  team is  now looking at  the nitty-gritty of shooting in Canada during these pandemic times.

A  source close to the project informs me, “The screenplay  co-written by Raju Hirani and Kanika Dhillon is ready. Shah Rukh Khan has agreed to allot dates.  But the clearance from that end(Canada) is taking time  due to the Covid situation.”

Sources   say  the shooting may be  pushed to 2022  given the  fact that  Shah Rukh Khan is busy with his other  assignment Pathan and may not want to waste his dates  by waiting for Hirani’s untitled  film to start.

It is likely that he  may sign another project in the interim.

Significantly  Shah Rukh Khan has not been seen on screen since 2019 when Aanand  Rai’s Zero  was released. During the  shooting  of  Zero, Rai  and  Shah Rukh Khan had become  very close creative  collaborators and had  agreed mutually to work together in another  project. When  Zero bombed, nothing  was  heard  of that  project.
