Shahrukh Khan is playing the role of a dwarf in the movie but just like Anand L. Rai's other films, this one too would be a love story.
Shooting In Meerut
As reported by a daily, Anand L. Rai has started the preparations of the movie and is in Meerut to finalise the shooting locations.
This is the first time Shahrukh Khan and Anand L. Rai are working together. Talking about the unusual subject of his film, Anand L. Rai had told a web portal, ''I have been hearing this and I have been talking about this. Yes, it's a dwarf film. But dwarf is not the character. I am making a film where the size of the character is short.''
Anand L. Rai had further added, ''It's a very new character. It's a story about a man and woman again like Ranjhanaa or Tanu Weds Manu. It has different characters. In this case, my character is smaller in size. Let's not design it like a story of a dwarf. It's a story of a man who's size is small."
The release date of the movie had been announced on the official Twitter handle of Red Chillies Entertainment. Here's what they had tweeted, "Excited to announce our film with @aanandlrai & @iamsrk in association with @cypplOfficial.Releasing Dec 21, 2018.Title to be revealed soon!"
