Shahrukh khan is a multi tasker. He has spread his wings to many different entrepreneurial ventures as well. Apart from acting Shahrukh also owns the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders and also owns his own production Red Chillies Entertainment.
Now King Khan wants to buy Essel Studios in Trombay. Reportedly the actor is on the way to finalize the deal and soon might be the owner of the studios. Apparently Shahrukh is in line with two other people to buy Essel Studios but most likely it will be bought by Shahrukh. Says a source, "It will take time for the deal to be struck as initial talks are on. Shahrukh has evinced an interest in it, but it will take around six to seven months to strike the deal. There are two other parties who are interested, but I think Shahrukh will most probably get the deal."
Apparently when the deal is finalized the owner of the studios will announce the new owner. King Khan apparently wants to renovate the studios and a new name might also be in discussion. According to an insider, SRK was also interested to buy Mehboob Studios in Bandra but the deal didn't work out. Mehboob studios is close to SRK's residence, Mannat.
After the huge success of Chennai Express Shahrukh is currently busy shooting for Farah Khan's upcoming venture Happy New Year.
