We have seen South actors craving to work with maverick director AR Murugadoss. But how often we see a superstar from Bollywood expressing his wish openly to team up with the Tamil filmmaker? Well, here is a star, on his recent visit to Chennai, has said that he wants to join hands with one of the most successful directors in India.
It is none other than Shahrukh Khan, who was in Chennai last weekend to be part of Vijay Awards. The King Khan has said that AR Murugadoss had approached him to star in a few successful remakes of his South films. But it did not happen because the Bollywood superstar wanted to star in original films.
Shahrukh Khan had told AR Murugadoss that why does not he churn out a fresh story for him rather than coming up with remake plans. The Bollywood actor believes that at the worst scenario, the film with a original story would fail, but it is okay for him as he will have the satisfaction of trying something new.
"When my friend Murugadoss tells me that there's this hit film he's made and he wants to remake it with me, I say, 'Why don't you write one for me? The worse that can happen is that it'll go wrong. But that's OK; we'd have tried something original'," the Times of India quoted the actor as saying.

When asked whether he would do a straight Tamil film ever, Shahrukh Khan did not give a straight answer. He said that he had a lot of difficulties when he starred in Kamal Hassan's earlier Hindi-Tamil film Hey Ram.
Shahrukh Receiving Vijay Award
Shahrukh Khan was recently honoured with Chevalier Sivaji Award at the 7th edition of Vijay awards last weekend. He received the award from the hands of Kamal Hassan, Vijay and members from the family of Sivaji Ganeshan.

"I have enjoyed working with Kamal Haasan and Ajith Kumar in my career. I may be the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL cricket league, but my favourite team is Chennai Super Kings," said Shahrukh while receiving his award.
