Paul Feig made dinner plans with Bollywood's 'Badshah' Shahrukh Khan on the virtual world, and now he is keen to take it forward in a more professional way. The Hollywood director says he "would love" to make a film with the Indian superstar.
The director, who is busy with his film 'Ghostbusters', also shared that his wife Laurie is a 'Bollywood fanatic' and a big fan of Shahrukh."I would love to do a film with Shah Rukh. My wife would be so happy," Feig told IANS. "I won't see my wife again," he quipped.

Back in May, when Shahrukh hosted a star-studded dinner party for Apple CEO Tim Cook, Feig's wife had tweeted: "Some day I hope Paul Feig can be welcome at Mannat! Dream, Shahrukh Khan."
Shahrukh had then invited the couple over for a meal. The 'Spy' director had then responded: "You're on, Shah Rukh Khan! I'll bring the ketchup. It would be an honour to meet you. Many thanks, my friend."
When asked about the virtually fixed dinner date, during a press event organised by Sony Pictures Entertainment for select media from across Asia for "Ghostbusters" here, Feig shared the fascination he has for Indian cinema and the superstar.
Feig's wife's favourite movie is Shahrukh-starrer "Om Shanti Om", the director shared. Right now, it is all about ghosts and women for Feig.
Feig, known for his flair of weaving comedy and action elements into his films, has given a 'female-centric' twist to "Ghostbusters", a reboot of the famous 1984 eponymous American supernatural horror comedy.
The film will release in India on July 29.
