Shahrukh Khan told a leading website, “I had been very caught up with RA.One, Don 2 and then I straightaway got into Yashji’s film. So, I could not take any time off for Xtrme City. I haven’t spoken to anyone for a long time (regarding the project). A couple of days back though, I was informed that I need to send an email (about the film).”
Shahrukh Khan further added, “Yes, maybe when I am in the US next time without facing many problems (laughs), I plan to go and meet Mr Scorsese to see what development has happened to it. I haven’t been in touch with Mr Scorsese. But I am sure it will be an interesting film whenever we start it. It’s not a project that you can start immediately without thorough preparation,” he says.
Xtrme City will be produced by the multiple Oscar-Winning Martin Scorsese. Screenwriter Paul Schrader of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull fame will direct it.
Xtrme City is a cross-cultural thriller, a tale about two men from radically different worlds. Reportedly, Shahrukh Khan will play the role of an underworld gangster and Leonardo DiCaprio will play a New York cop in the movie.
