The much spec­u­lated Shah Rukh Khan – Rajkumar Hirani col­lab­o­ra­tion has fi­nally taken shape.

“The pro­ject is on, but the de­tails are not known. It is not clear whether the pro­ject will star Shah Rukh, or if he will back it like what Vidhu Vinod Cho­pra used to do for all Hirani’s projects. Shah Rukh was, in fact, Hirani’s first choice to play Munnab­hai, and he was

also cre­atively in­volved with that film be­fore he opted out due to his back prob­lem,” says an in­dus­try source.

In­ter­est­ingly, the credits of Munnab­hai MBBS had a spe­cial mes­sage for the ac­tor that read: “Spe­cial thanks to Shah Rukh Khan for his cre­ative in­puts in the film.” Shah Rukh con­firmed in a re­cent me­dia in­ter­ac­tion in Mel­bourne that he was talk­ing to many writ­ers and di­rec­tors, as he was also look­ing to pro­duce some projects. The ac­tor, who was re­cently seen in a mys­tery Net­flix com­mer­cial chat­ting up with a girl who pre­tended to be his man­ager Pooja, has ap­par­ently given the go ahead for the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hirani. If this works out, it will be the com­ing true of Hirani’s dream af­ter 16 long years.
