Imtiaz Ali is directing Shah Rukh Khan in a film, shooting of which is going on in full throttle in Prague, under the working title The Ring. The movie stars Anushka Sharma opposite the actor, and is said to be love story between a tourist guide, played by SRK, and a Gujarati girl, played by Anushka. Pictures of the two actors hoverboarding during the shooting have popped up on internet and have got us excited.
Shah Rukh Khan is visible in two different sets of clothes in the pictures, so there is a slight possibility that this might not be a film sequence, but the hoverboard is just there on the sets for fun. In a picture SRK is looking all dapper, even on a hoverboard, in a classic combo of a white shirt and black trousers. Anushka, on the other hand is visible in much more hip and funky colors, olive green jeans topped with a cute pink jacket, going with white sneakers. Well, that does gives us a hint about their characters traits in the film.
This is the third time SRK is paired opposite Anushka Sharma. The actress made her debut opposite the superstar in the film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Then she again was again paired opposite him in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, where she played the role of role of a journalist who is one sided love affair with an army man, played by SRK.
With the shoot schedule of The Ring going on in full swing, SRK has bombarded the social media platform with on-set pictures of the time in Prague. And now, we at BollywoodLife was the first to bring to you a sneak peek into what’s happening during the making of the song from the film. Apparently, this is the same song for which Shah Rukh was recently spotted filming on the Charles Bridge in Prague. The song has been crooned by Mohit Chauhan, whose recent hits include Ilahi and Matargashti.
According to a report in DNA, the film is a love story but according to Shah Rukh it is a different take on romance. He said “Imtiaz has a different language of love. I told him I wanted to do a happy love story. And this is one, but keeping my age in mind, it’s not an upbeat, young love story. But, Imtiaz has a nice take on it. And hopefully, people will like it.” The actor also revealed in an interview that Imtiaz has always discussed films with him even though he was not a part of those flicks.
Director Imtiaz Ali's last outing was Tamasha, which starred Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The film received mixed reviews and fared average at the box office.
While we all might be super excited to see Imtiaz come back with a hit film, B-Town is quite worried about the fate of The Ring. We all know how superstitions go around in Bollywood. As per a report in DNA, Prague is not a very lucky city for Bollywood. Imtiaz Ali has previously shot for Ranbir Kapoor’s Rockstar in Prague, which, though very critically appreciated, was not a hit at the box office. Other films that have been shot in the city were Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities, which again tanked, and Duplicate, also starring Shah Rukh Khan, was a dud in his career, despite having him in a double role. Certainly this film has a lot riding on Imtiaz's shoulders.
Shah Rukh's last release was Fan, which like Tamasha, didn't perform as mind blowingly as expected. The coming year is an action-packed one for the actor. The release of Rahul Dholakia’s Raees will be early in the year. The actor will also be seen as a life coach to Alia Bhatt in Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi.
Anushka Sharma's last release was with Salman Khan, Sultan, which was a blockbuster. She has Ae Dil Hai Mushkil releasing during Diwali, this year. ADHM looks like a promising film from the teaser that was released 2 days back. It has already crossed 8 million views within two days of its release.
