Director Aanand L Rai has denied that Bandhua is the title of his forthcoming film with superstar Shah Rukh Khan. “The title of my film with Shah Rukh Khan is not ‘Bandhua’, as being referred to by the media. The film is yet untitled and we will make an official announcement of the title once it is locked,” Aanand told PTI.
The King Khan will play a dwarf in the film that would be a love story. Gossip mills are abuzz that Katrina Kaif will romance the Dilwale star once again after “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”. Earlier, the buzz had zeroed on in Kangana Ranaut as the heroine of the film. However, sources later claimed that the director reportedly had a tough time shooting with Kangana during Tanu Weds Manu Returns and is now planning to finalise Katrina for the role.
Aanand himself refused to confirm any of it.”We can’t confirm anything at this stage. It is too soon to talk about it,” Aanand said. The film will go on floors by the end of this year and will release by December 2018.
Shah Rukh is currently busy with Imtiaz Ali’s film which also stars Anushka Sharma. After wrapping this project, the star will begin work for Rai’s directorial venture.
