The buzz is that filmmaker Aanand L. Rai is planning to make a film starring Shah Rukh Khan and he is on the hunt for the lead actress.

Kangana Ranaut, who has worked with the director in "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", is rumoured to be going after Rai for the role opposite SRK.

It was earlier reported that Kangana has been sending feelers to the filmmaker for a patch up.

The report also suggests that Rai was annoyed with Kangana's tantrums on the "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" sets and thus, he seems not interested in casting the actress.

But, according to the recent buzz, all is well between the actress and the director.

"Agreements and disagreements are part of film-making process. But why would Kangana send me feelers at this stage of her career? Also, we have great equations. And who doesn't want to work with Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir, Varun Dhawan...I will go on taking names...." Aanand told Pinkvilla.

"I'd get a call from Kangana's side when that article (regarding Kangana sending him feelers) appeared and I told them not to react," he further added.

There has been rumours regarding the leading actress of Rai's film. Kangana, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif are among the choices which are making rounds currently.

It will be interesting to see if Kangana bags the role opposite Shah Rukh as she has always believed that she doesn't need the Khans to be successful.

Currently, Kangana is busy shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's "Rangoon" alongside Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.

On the other hand, it has been reported that Shah Rukh will play the role of a dwarf in this film.

Earlier, there were reports that Salman Khan was the first choice for the lead role of a dwarf in the film, but after he backed off due to time constraints, Shah Rukh replaced Salman for the role.

Talking about the film's storyline and the star cast, Rai told Pinkvilla, "I don't want a set up feel to my film, I want casting feel. It is a man-woman, woman-man relationship film. It is entertaining and a very different love story. The casting process is still on. Who knew Madhavan-Kangana and Sonam-Dhanush pairing would work so beautifully?"
