Shahrukh Khan is pitted against Amitabh Bachchan more than often. They seem to share good rapport in real life but they are rivals in reel life. Comparison is inevitable because Shahrukh is called the 'Badshah of Bollywood' while Amitabh is called the 'Big B'. However, Badshah has stepped into Big B's shoes more than once.
Shahrukh hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati show after Amitabh made it so popular. Then he acted in the remake of Don, which has Amitabh playing the lead role in the original. Now, the another news is doing the rounds that Shahrukh is keen on remaking Amitabh's Deewar. It is said that he has even finalised the cast and has approached Yash Chopra, the director of the original film, to take care of the new version too.
The grapevine is abuzz with the news that Shahrukh wants to cast Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor along with Priyanka Chopra and Boman Irani. However, people from Yash Chopra's camp said that they are not aware of Shahrukh's plan to remake Deewar. Moreover, it is said that the remake rights of the film has not been sold yet.
So, is Deewar-remaking story just a creation of the rumourmongers? Anything can happen because the final countdown for the release of Shahrukh's much-hyped film Om Shanti Om has begun.
