Shah Rukh Khan, who is staying away from films these days, has liked a script narrated by Raj and DK, sparking speculations that he would act in a film helmed by the filmmaker duo.
In an interview, Raj and DK revealed SRK’s reaction to the script. DK said that he immediately loved the script. Raj said that SRK told them to keep the script intact since it’s a great script. SRK also told them to make sure the script remains what they wanted it to be and don’t be bogged down by the star or actor in the film.
Raj and DK are currently working on the script. They said that even after meeting SRK for several times, he’d still say the same. Raj said that it is one of their favourite scripts and they have been waiting to make it at the right time.
It is to be noted that post the debacle, he chose to take a sabbatical and take some time out to read the scripts. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan found a spot on the trends’ list on Monday after a video of the 54-year-old actor sharing his views on religion went crazy viral, courtesy fan-clubs. The video is from a recent episode of reality show Dance Plus 5, in which Shah Rukh was a guest.
He says, “Humne koi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi Hindu hai, mai Musalman hoon. Aur mere jo bacche hain, wo Hindustan hain. Jab wo school gae to school me wo bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti choti thi, usne aa ke pucha bhi mujhse ek baar, ‘papa hum kaun se religion ke hain?’ Maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye. (There is no such thing as Hindu-Muslim between is. My wife is Hindi and I am Muslim, my kids are Indian. When they went to school, we had to fill in the religion section. My daughter asked me ‘what is our religion?’ and I wrote that we are Indian, we have no other religion and that shouldn’t happen either).”
SRK also recalled an incident from when Suhana was young and enquired about her “religion”. “Kai baar… jab woh school gaye toh school me wo bharna padhta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti chhoti thi, usne aa ke puchha bhi mujhse ek baar ki, ‘Papa, hum kaun se religion ke hain?’ Toh maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye (When they went to school, we had to fill in the religion section. My daughter asked me once ‘Papa, what is our religion?’ and I wrote we are Indian, we have no religion and shouldn’t have one either),” he said.
