After their successful stint in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif are coming together for another film, which was initially titled Katrina Meri Jaan. What’s interesting this time around though, is the fact that Shah Rukh Khan will be playing the role of a dwarf!
SRK’s character is a small town guy, who sets out to meet his Bollywood icon, i.e. Katrina Kaif. The actress will be playing herself in the film, while Anushka’s role has not yet been revealed.
In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, the PK actress revealed, “The film has a lot of VFX and the shooting part is yet to begin. My character has been developed well, and I’m looking forward to working in this film.” The visual effects are most likely adopted to show SRK’s dwarf sized character.
Directed by Aanand L. Rai, of Tanu Weds Manu fame, the film also features Salman Khan in a cameo. The director revealed the purpose behind casting SRK as a dwarf was to show a love story from a different perspective. “I wanted to cut the all-important two feet from a star as big and confident as Khan saab, then tell a love story. Being an intelligent man, he knew what I was talking about,” the director said in an interview.
With an interesting star cast and unique storyline, much is to be expected from this film!
