Shahrukh Khan to play Jawaharlal Nehru, or not?

The actor is apparently in the reckoning to play Nehru in Krishna Shah’s Birth of a Nation

Rumours were abuzz online about Shahrukh Khan playing former PM Jawaharlal Nehru in Australian director Bruce Beresford’s new film Birth of a Nation. Beresford is apparently helming Krishna Shah’s project on Nehru’s daughter and former PM Indira Gandhi, and is in Mumbai for casting. A website also reported that the filmmaker gave a presentation in which some Bollywood and Hollywood actors’ faces were morphed into the characters of his film. It was there that Shahrukh Khan appeared morphed as Jawaharlal Nehru, it said.

But BollywoodLife has learned from sources that Beresford is not attached to direct Birth of  a Nation. So, we don’t know what the presentation was about, and whether it did take place at all. In that case, we’re not sure about SRK being a part of the project either! So, did SRK just miss out on a chance to play a historical figure?
