Ever since the clash between Shahrukh Khan's Imtiaz Ali film and Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been announced, the B-town is abuzz with the changing dynamics between the two superstars.
However a recent statement made by Shahrukh Khan about wanting to make a film with Akshay Kumar has been grabbing headlines lately. Find out why King Khan said this in his interview with DNA-
Shahrukh Khan Wanted To Make A Film With Akshay Kumar
When quizzed about the collaboration between Salman Khan and Karan Johar on their film with Akshay, SRK quipped, "It should be collaborative. And it should have been done a long time back. But it's very good that Karan and Salman are making a film with Akshay. I wanted to do that. But the story and all didn't work out. I'm sure he is really open to it. I think whenever there is an opportunity, as producers, we should make this happen."
The More The Collaboration The Better The Films
The actor added, "Firstly, we should get this correct. They should not be taken as individuals, as Karan or Salman. It's Dharma and SKF. They are different identities, they are film producers. It's about the company, not about individuals. So, two companies have come together to make a film with a big movie star. Similarly, we at Red Chillies do it too. Maybe, Dharma and Red Chillies, or YRF.
He further said, "Filmmaking should be collaborative. The more collaboration there is, in music, filmmaking, storytelling - you will have better films. Tintin was made by Steven Spielberg, who loved it and he produced it and let Peter Jackson - who owned it - direct it. It's something Steven Spielberg always wanted to make and direct, but he found that Peter Jackson has it, he said, ‘Let's collaborate' and make it together."
SRK's Dream To Make Mahabharata For The Big Screen
King Khan even expressed his desire of making a big budgeted film on Indian mythology Mahabharata. The leading daily quoted him as saying, ""It's my dream to make the Mahabharat for the screen. It's been for years now. But I don't think I have the budget to do that. I would love to do it, but I don't think I could afford to. Unless I collaborate. But not with Indian producers. There have to be international producers on board for this one because Indian producers and Indian films have a limited market. This one has to go out into the international markets. So you have to collaborate with someone who's international."
The Film Should Be On The Scale Of Baahubali Or Even Larger
SRK said, "You don't take up a subject like the Mahabharat and make it any less. It should be on the scale of a Baahubali or an even larger one. I'm extremely busy. If I get there, it would be lovely to make that film. I have spoken to a few. Every second person wants to make Mahabharata. There's nothing concrete happening yet."
