Last year there was a huge buzz that Shahrukh Khan is doing Hollywood filmmaker Martin Scorsese’s movie with Leonardo DiCaprio. The rumours died down when Shahrukh Khan refused to confirm it. But recently Shahrukh revealed that he is planning to meet Martin Scorsese for the movie Xtrme City.
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.
