According to the latest reports, SLB is keen on putting back one of his romantic sagas on the floor soon. Bollywood Hungama reported hearing that the director approached SRK with another version of a script he had written for Izhaar.
The outlet has quoted the source, “Izhaar was a film that Bhansali wanted to do with SRK around four years ago. It’s a love story revolving around this couple – an Indian man and a Norwegian girl. It’s based on the real-life story of the guy who cycled all the way to Norway for love. Bhansali wanted to adapt that into a screenplay and has reworked the script again for SRK’s perusal. Now it needs to be seen if Shah Rukh green lights it this time around.”
For the unversed, SRK will be seen sharing the screen space with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in Siddharth Anand’s directorial-Pathan. Reportedly, this one also features Salman Khan in a cameo role.
