After years of speculations, the wish of Shah Rukh Khan fans to see him teaming up with maverick director Priyadarshan, has finally become a reality. As per reports, King Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment will produce the project, where Bollywood's global superstar will play himself. As is the case with most Priyan ventures, this one too will be a remake of a South (Malayalam) superhit, KADHA PARAYUMBOL.
The low budget quickie will see Shah Rukh Khan stepping into the role essayed by Mammootty in the original. For those who are not aware about regional cinema, KADHA PARAYUMBOL is the story of a barber, in a Kerala village, whose classmate happens to be a superstar. What happens in the life of the barber, when the superstar and his team come to the village to shoot for a film, forms the crux of the story.
It is obvious that the film will be adapted to suit Bollywood tastes, and Priyan being a master at that is sure to do a swell job. He is even trying to rope in master actor Irrfan Khan for the other role, essayed by Sreenivasan in the original. If things go according to plans, SRK will take up the project after completing Aditya Chopra's RAB NE BANA DI JODI.
