It is reported that Shahrukh had been waiting to play a terrorist on screen but was never offered this role by any filmmaker. The movie will highlight problems being faced by Muslims post the 9/11 attack. Shahrukh had himself faced discrimination at an international airport when his luggage had to undergo extra checking when the security person got suspicious seeing his surname.
Johar is reluctant to disclose details about the project but said that terrorism is one subject in our life which cannot be ignored anymore. Karan added that dealing with the subject will be a challenge. Khan which hits the theatres in 2009 will be a healthy break from family dramas for Johar.
