Shah Rukh Khan Aanand L Rai film indian at heart

‘Tanu Weds Manu’ director, Aanand L Rai, is all set to direct Shah Rukh Khan in his next film. The superstar will be seen as a dwarf in the film. Recently, in an interview with a daily, Rai revealed that the film is very Indian at heart.


When Rai was asked that there are many speculations surrounding the film and what it is about, he said, “It is at the writing and scripting stage. Since it is the story of a dwarf, people are speculating that a lot of VFX will be used. The technical aspect of the film is a very small part, though. Emotionally, it is going to be a very tough film for me. I am enjoying the fact that it is a love story, although it is a challenge to portray this particular man-woman relationship. It is very Indian at heart and the story will unfold in Meerut, Ghaziabad, Delhi and Mumbai.”

“Every time I move from one film to another, I need to feel nervous about whether or not I will be able to make it. I don’t make it easy for me. After ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ (2011), moving on to ‘Raanjhanaa’ (2013) was a tough call. I wondered if the viewers would accept an ordinary looking south Indian actor playing a Banarasi boy in a way that breaks the mould of Bollywood heroes,” he added.
