Anand L Rai Working On A Script With Himanshu Sharma To Team Up With Shah Rukh Khan After 'Zero'

I've been really waiting to see Shah Rukh Khan on-screen after Zero which released three years ago. While Khan had completely transformed himself for the film, it didn't meet expectations at the box-office. It was a unique subject completely opposite to the larger-than-life stardom SRK enjoys. But, the film's failure has not hampered Khan.

In an interview with India Today, film-maker Anand L Rai and writer Himanshu Sharma opened up about making Atrangi Re after Zero and confessed that it was SRK who motivated them to continue making tricking stories.

Himanshu Sharma said,

"Khan saab (SRK) used to say this, 'there will be many people that you work with who talk about success but nobody can teach you failure better than Shah Rukh Khan and I am telling you that never lose this madness.' We owe this to him and that is why we never shied away from telling another tricky story. We could have easily gone to a very easy subject, but we stayed true to what we are."

Anand added that they could have easily made Tanu Weds Manu 3 after Zero's failure but they chose to make Atrangi Re because of SRK.

When questioned him about working with Khan again, the director said,

“We are working really hard to reach him now, we are working towards it. Maybe it will take a few more years or if tomorrow we have a story which he likes, we will be there. He is all heart."

I really hope this re-union happens soon and this time their uniqueness is welcomed with opened arms even at the box-office.
