Shah Rukh Khan’s self-imposed sabbatical is making the superstar’s fans antsy but the actor on Tuesday said he is working on his next film, which he hopes will turn out to be a “hit”. The 53 – year-old Bollywood star, who is yet to announce to his next project after the debacle of last year Zero, conducted a Q&A session with admirers and followers on Twitter.
Asked when he would come up with another film, Shah Rukh reiterated he was working on a few scripts. “Working on stuff. Will take some time once I get the material right,” the actor said.
When a user quizzed what kind of a movie he was keen to make, Shah Rukh at his witty best, said, “The hit kind? Hopefully.”
On being asked if the rumors of him working on the fourth installment of action thriller series Dhoom, the actor humored the fan, saying, “Suna to maine bhi hai , Tumhein kuch aur khabar mile toh dena. (I too have heard about it. Let me know if you get to know more.) “
On the occasion of Dussehra festival, a social media user made fun of his 2011 superhero film Ra.One, which didn’t do well at the box office. “Sir aaj dussera hai toh Ra-One ki CD kyun nahi jala dete aap? (Sir today is Dussehra, why don’t you burn Ra-One’s CD)”, to which Shah Rukh sportingly replied, “Are kitna jale pe namak chidhoge ! (How much salt will you rub into my wounds? “)
When asked to describe Joaquin Phoenix’s performance in the recently-released Todd Phillips-directed Joker, he called it “well nuanced. So felt … quietly screaming.”
Shah Rukh also promised he will try and finish his book, which he has been writing for years now, on his “next long outdoor”.
