There have been rumors floating around that Shah Rukh Khan has been looking for a superhero project. Now we can report he has begun work on one and it is based on one of his son’s favorite super hero characters, Spiderman. Shah Rukh is developing the project with Anubhav Sinha as director. Full of special effects, the film is going to be one of the biggest and costly films ever in Bollywood.
Sinha said, “Yes, it’s an FX-driven fantasy for children and the child within every person, on the lines of ‘Spiderman’. It’s definitely not an animation film, as wrongly reported in some sections of the press.”
They have been working on the script for three months and SRK is really excited about the project. “I’m surprised at how accessible Shah Rukh is for me. I always thought that he likes to work with directors with whom he has a certain comfort level. Shah Rukh didn’t know me at all, but he’s all for our film together.”
Along with Spidey Shah Rukh there will also be a 12-year-old boy, as perhaps a side kick or maybe just along for the adventure and the casting for that role has just begun.
The film will go to the floor by the end of this year and we cannot wait to see SRK swinging into action. We will be sure to report all the news about the exciting project so watch this space for more!
