Recently, there were reports that Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be soon seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s untitled movie, after hearing this fans left in excitement. But they will be more excited to know that Vicky Kaushal is also in talks for the same movie.
As per the reports by Pinkvilla, the creators of the movie are in ‘advance talks’ with Vicky Kaushal for a role in this immigration story. The report presents a source who declares that Vicky is probably to get an important role and will be seen along with Shah Rukh Khan.
The source told Pinkvilla, “Right from Munnabhai MBBS, Rajkumar Hirani films have always had special roles which warrant the casting of a known face – be it Jimmy Shergill in Munnabhai franchise, Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput in PK or Vicky Kaushal in Sanju. And now, Raju Hirani is in advanced talks with Vicky Kaushal to play an important role in his next alongside Shah Rukh Khan.”
To get Vicky on board, the source also declared that the creators are also finalizing dates and timelines.
The source also added, “Vicky and Rajkumar Hirani bonded well on the sets of Sanju, and hence it is obvious for the director to repeat the casting. The dates, timelines, and other aspects are being worked upon at the moment. Only once everything falls in place, the actor would officially come on board the project.”
Aside from Shah Rukh Khan and Vicky Kaushal, Taapsee Pannu is also nearly confirmed to play the female lead in the movie.
The shooting will begin in Summer 2022, according to reports the shoot will take place in Mumbai, followed by London and Budapest. Earlier, a source close to the development told Mid-Day that Shah Rukh is expected to start shooting for Hirani’s film soon because Atlee’s team has already been directed to wrap the film by March.
Aside from this, the actor will next be seen in Pathan and Atlee’s. His last project was Zero, also starring Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
