EXCLUSIVE: Shah Rukh Khan’s Next With Aanand L. Rai Not Titled Bandhua

Shah Rukh Khan has almost wrapped up shoot for Imtiaz Ali’s next. The sets for his immediate next film with Aanand L. Rai has already been built in Film City and the actor will soon start shoot in April.
The film will also have Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif in leading roles. There were rumors that the film has been titled Bandhua.

But Shah Rukh Khan rubbishes that piece of news. “It is not true. We haven’t decided on a title yet. Bandhua is actually another film which was narrated to me and people said that Aanand’s film is now called that. It is not. It is a beautiful, emotional story and I start shooting sometime in April.”

Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif have been finalised to play the leading parts in the film. It is one of the biggest casting coups in recent times. The film is a heartland story based in Meerut and New York.

A lot of the talkie and movement scenes will be shot at Film city where the team has already built the sets. Shah Rukh Khan plans to make it on a lavish budget and does not want to compromise on the film’s quality. The film will hit screens next year on Christmas.
