We had earlier informed you that Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma are coming together in Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial venture. However, nothing apart from the above-mentioned fact had been revealed. But finally, it looks like all SRK and Anushka fans can rejoice. The movie has been confirmed and is tentatively titled as The Ring. However, it is Anushka’s never-seen-before avatar in the film that has been grabbing attention.
Anushka Sharma In A New Avatar
Shah Rukh and Anushka have earlier been seen together in two films. While the NH-10 actress made her acting debut opposite the superstar in YRF’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, she was again shared screen space with King Khan in Yash Chopra’s last directorial project, Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Surprisingly, this time too they have been signed for a love story!
Director Imtiaz Ali, who is best known for movies like Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Rockstar, and Highway, saw his latest outing in Tamasha. When SRK was quizzed about working with the acclaimed director, he said that he wanted to work with Imtiaz in a happy love story, since Ali is best known for depicting love. Though The Ring is not a young love story due to Shah Rukh’s age, the director has a nice take on it.
Anushka Sharma, who is currently busy with her second home production, Phillauri, will be essaying the role of a Gujarati girl in the film. Hence, she is currently perfecting her Gujarati diction. The actress had trained in Haryanvi for NH-10 and had to learn Urdu for her next release, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Buzz is that King Khan will be portraying the role of a Punjabi tourist guide, and will also sport a tattoo on his chest!
As per sources, the duo will be shooting in some picturesque locations in Europe for this rom-com, the initial locations being Prague and Budapest. They will be flying down for their first filming schedule in early September.
