Sanjay Dutt and Shah Rukh Khan have come together on screen just once. In the title song of the SRK starrer Om Shanti Om in 2007. But if all goes well, the two superstars may soon share more than just a dance step on screen in Agneepath director Karan Malhotra’s next.
While there had been rumours about the ‘next’ venture in question being a sequel to Malhotra’s 2012 blockbuster Agneepath, the filmmaker told us that it would be an original idea.
“All I can say at the moment is that I do have a film in mind and it’s not a sequel or a remake. As soon as I have a clearer picture I will first tell my producer Karan Johar about it, then share it with the world,” Malhotra told Mirror.
Our source close to Dharma Productions however indicated that the filmmaker’s next project would be a rugged action film with ‘tailor-made’ roles for Dutt and SRK. While the two actors have been very friendly off screen, they had never come together for a full-fledged production ever. This would be the first.
Moreover, Karan Johar’s production house that was rumoured to be moving away from their favourite hero Shah Rukh is planning two projects with the actor in the coming year. Our source revealed, that Malhotra would definitely direct one of them.
