Soon after wrapping up Jab Harry Met Sejal, Shah Rukh Khan started shooting for his dwarf film with Aanand L Rai. In fact, he finished the first schedule two days ago. The film sees him teaming up with Anushka Sharma for the fourth time and Katrina Kaif for the second time. He says, “We (Anushka and he) will just be carrying forward from our last film which we finished shooting four months ago. Now, we will be back shooting together again in the next two months. She is like family. It is easy to work with friends. Katrina (Kaif) will also join us and it will be like Jab Tak Hai Jaan. We had a lot of fun promoting that film together. The three of us had very few scenes together but when we started promoting it, we had a great time.”
Ask him if the title for the film is in place, and he retorts tongue firmly in cheek, “Yes, we have a title, we have the heroines and it even has got a story this time!” When prodded about whether he is willing to share the title, he says, “People think I am avoiding giving out the title, but I think it should be out with all the technicians involved in the film. We selfishly try to put the title out without involving them. I am just waiting for a few more days to get everyone on board and announce it officially.”
What about the title i that is doing the rounds? “We can live with that one, but that’s not title of the film,” he quips. There is also buzz about it being called Katrina Meri Jaan! Is that the one, we ask? “Woh meri jaan hai, lekin that’s not the title.” laughs SRK.
In Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Katrina had a longer screen presence than Anushka — this time we hear it will be the other way round. Anushka will have a bigger role than Kat’s. But SRK refuses to divulge anything and jokes, “In my film, my role is bigger than anyone else’s.”
