The female lead in Shahrukh Khan's forthcoming Yash Raj film 'Fan' is yet to be revealed but the Bollywood superstar says the movie is such that it does not require any big leading lady.
The 48-year-old actor is currently shooting for the film and
will be seen in a different avatar in the movie helmed by 'Band
Baaja Baarat' director Maneesh Sharma.
"I have 'Fan' with YRF and Maneesh. There are two girls
in the film. It is a film where I don't think you need a big lady
star. It is cosy interesting, different film. It is one of the
challenging films that I have done in 20 years. We are still
discussing as to how we can take it ahead. It is a story of a fan
of a movie star," Shahrukh told PTI.
The actor has signed Rahul Dholakia's next movie,
'Raees' and Rohit Shetty's next. He is also in talks for
another movie but nothing has been finalised yet.
"'Raees' it is a space I have never tried, it is a
different film. Rahul Dholakia narrated the film to me and I liked
it very much. They are cosy for me as an actor. Then I have Rohit's
film and another which I have not signed yet," he said.
Shahrukh is gearing up for his Diwali release 'Happy New
Year', which will see him reunite with his 'Main Hoon
Naa' and 'Om Shanti Om' director Farah Khan. The
heist comedy also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Deepika
Padukone, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah and will hit theatres on
Shahrukh, who has produced the film via his Red Chillies
Entertainment, said he plans to expand his production house and is
also open to venturing into the regional space.
"We want to expand and plan to make three-five films a year may
be with me or without me but not 10-12. We have started the
process. The film has to have quality, essence then only we will
make it. We want to take time and make good quality films," the
'Chennai Express' star said.
"I want to make a Marathi film. Rohit and I were talking about
it but nothing concrete has happened. It is a good space. Not just
Marathi but any other language film," he added.
