In case you are wondering why Shahrukh Khan has been looking pale and exhausted, even after Ra.One and Don2 have come and gone, here’s why. Mumbai Mirror has learnt that King Khan is back to doing what he does best – burning the midnight oil with his SFX team at Red Chillies, to put together a very special presentation.
SRK, we were told, had a meeting with his trusted lieutenants in Red Chillies, at his residence, and gave them a deadline. The presentation, say sources from the team, is about his next pet project, which is based on one of the most interesting and complex characters in the Mahabharat, Karna.
In some of his recent interviews to foreign publications, SRK has also spoken extensively about his epic plans for the epic project, which will feature visual effects along the lines of Avatar. Now, with a month left for Berlin Film Festival, where SRK intends to pitch for his Rs 200-crore megafilm, the Red Chillies team is working round the clock to prepare the presentation.
Each member, we believe, has been asked to give their own inputs for the interpretation of Karna’s character, which according to sources, may be essayed by Khan himself. In many of his earlier interviews, SRK has confessed that he has always been intrigued by this epic warrior.
The film will feature both Indian and Hollywood actors, and SRK is hoping to find a big-ticket co-producer for the same.
