The debacle of 'Zero' has probably hit Shah Rukh Khan hard. The movie was one spectacular experiment done by Aanand L Rai and SRK was indeed very different in the role. However, the audience who are hell-bent on seeing SRK in his usual avatar and not something unique, was not impressed with the flick. This has now made him quite choosy about his next script, apart from Farhan Akhtar's Don 3. Why Can't Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar Work Together?.
Now, pinkvilla.com, he is right now reading multiple scripts before choosing the right one. A source told the entertainment portal, "Shah Rukh is reading around 10 scripts currently. While the one with Madhur Bhandarkar is already known, he has also been approached by Andhadun director Sriram Raghavan, Amit Sharma, Amar Kaushik, Sanjay Leela Bhansali among others."
The list of directors is actually very tempting to say no to. While SRK has already worked with Bhansali, the rest of them will be his first-hand experience. However, all of them who gave respective hit films, will be only eager to SRK in the lead.
Meanwhile, during the Mumbai Police event, Umang 2019, the superstar had expressed his wish to don the role of a cop. This came into fruition as Madhur Bhandarkar reportedly offered him a film on Inspector Ghalib. Unlike Singham, Simmba or even Dabangg, this one will be a serious thriller that will uncover the sand smuggling.
While it will be actually interesting to see him as the cop, we wonder what the other scripts are about. However, before all this happens, wait for him to return as the ultimate baddie in the third and probably the final instalment of DON. We hope that he chooses his scripts wisely this time!
