Earlier, there were also speculations that the actor is in talks with Rajkumar Hirani and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next but it's been a while to those and no confirmation or announcement has come to the fore. And it isn't very surprising because SRK had recently said, "Usually what happens is when your one film is coming to an end, you begin work on your next film and I get involved within 3-4 months. But this time I am just not feeling like…My heart doesn’t allow me to..I just felt that I should rather take time out, watch films, listen to stories and read more books. Even my kids are in their college stage…my daughter is going to college and my son is about to finish his studies. So I just want to spend more time with my family." In fact, he did seem happy on the family trip to the Maldives recently.
Having said that, this is no trial to rub in any of this. Instead, this is to give the good news that he is unto his next as a producer. After rolling out the Sujoy Ghosh directorial, Badla, featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Amrita Singh--which was an adaptation of Spanish thriller, Invisible Guest--his production house has bagged the rights of the Spanish show, Money Heist, which is currently in its third season. A source told Mumbai Mirror, "Shah Rukh Khan was introduced to Money Heist by one of his partners. He loves the show and believes it can be adapted in the Indian context as a feature film."
"There is no clarity on Shah Rukh Khan’s involvement as an actor. At this point of time, he is only producing it," the source informed, adding that the cast will be decided based on the script. "SRK has always been open to involving other actors in his production ventures." Reportedly, a team of writers is already in place for the scripting. If you must know, the series revolves around a mysterious man who calls himself 'The Professor' and recruits eight career criminals.
