Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have become a hit pair ever since the duo came together in RAB NE BANA DI JODI. They were again seen in JAB TAK HAI JAAN. They are also gearing up to be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s untitled next.
And now we hear that, Aanand L Rai’s film with Shah Rukh that had roped in Katrina earlier this year, has brought on board yet another hottie. Reportedly there was a lot of speculation surrounding the casting of another female lead in the film. However, the makers have finally confirmed that Anushka has been signed on for the movie.
Speaking about the same the source said, “There were rumors of several actors having signed or being approached for Aanand L Rai's film but that was pure conjecture by the media. The makers never confirmed or commented on the casting of the female leads before this. Few were aware of the fact that, Shah Rukh Khan had discussed this film with Anushka quite a while ago, while they were shooting for Imtiaz Ali's film and were looking for the right time to make the announcement.”
Speaking about roping in Anushka, Aanand L Rai says, “I'm thrilled that Anushka Sharma joins Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif for my next. From our very first meeting, she had an instant connect with the character. She seemed very excited about the challenges that this role demands. She’s at a more than ready stage in her career to essay a complex role like this. We have been working on her look and prepping for the film. It was only once things fell into place that we wanted to announce Anushka’s casting.”
As far as shooting of Aanand L Rai’s film is concerned only SRK is seen shooting for his role wherein he plays a dwarf, while Anushka is yet to begin her shoot. On the other hand Katrina Kaif is busy filming TIGER ZINDA HAI with Salman khan.
Indeed JAB TAK HAI JAAN team collaborates yet again for Aanand L Rai’s next. While in JAB TAK HAI JAAN, it was one-sided love for Anushka, it is to be seen how Aanand’s film will be presenting SRK-Anushka’s jodi here.
Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan are teaming up with each other for the fourth time now. SRK has done maximum number of films with Kajol and now it seems Anushka Sharma is gradually becoming as the new ‘Kajol’ for SRK.
Hope the fresh jodi of Anushka and SRK are loved the same way SRK and Kajol created magic!
