If sources are to be believed, Aditya Chopra is now writing a script for Shah Rukh Khan. It is also being said that the filmmaker is likely to direct the film. Says a source, `Discussions between the two are still at an early stage but Aditya has started writing the script. If all goes as per plan, the film will go on the floors by 2015.`
Shah Rukh has mentioned in several interviews that he has never hesitated to say yes to Aditya Chopra and his father, the late Yash Chopra. In fact, he has already signed the film, ‘Fan’, under the Yash Raj banner. `If Adi Chopra had to direct a film, SRK wouldn’t turn it down,` says the source.
However, a Yash Raj Films spokesperson denied the news. `There’s no script; no cast. Nothing has been decided about Aditya Chopra’s next directorial outing. There’s nothing in the pipeline as of now. These are just rumours,` said the spokesperson. Chopra has directed SRK thrice so far: first collaboration was ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ (1995), followed by ‘Mohabbatein’ in 2000, and then ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ in 2008.
