Katrina SRK

Katrina Kaif, who was last seen in Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos opposite Ranbir Kapoor, has started shooting for Aanand L Rai's yet-to-be-titled film with Shah Rukh Khan.

Katrina, who is pretty excited to share the screen with Shah Rukh Khan for the second time after Jab Tak Hai Jaan, shared a picture of hers with SRK and the director, who were seen all smiles while kicking off the film's shoot schedule.

"First day of shoot with the incredible Anand Rai and @iamsrk ( super excited to be shooting with him after 5 years ) ...... here's to putting our hearts and souls into creating a wonderful movie together, [sic]" Katrina wrote on her Instagram page.

Apart from Katrina and SRK, the film reunites SRK and Anushka together for the third time after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Jab Harry Met Sejal.

While there is lot of anticipation among fans for the movie, the film will see SRK playing the role of a dwarf for the first time, while Anushka will be seen playing a mentally-challenged person.

Katrina, on the other hand, will reportedly play herself in the film.

Shah Rukh Khan is hoping to bounce back with this movie since most of his films in the past, apart from Dear Zindagi and Raees, have failed to rake in money at the box office. And for this, he is making sure his film gets a solo release in order to acquire screen counts across the country.

On the work front, Katrina has recently wrapped up Tiger Zinda Hain 60-day shoot schedule with Salman Khan in Abu Dhabi. With only one song remaining to be filmed, Ali Abbas Zafar directorial is slated to release on December 22 this year.

Anushka, on the other hand, is gearing up for her home production film Pari, which will hit the theatres on February 9, next year. SRK will be reprising his role in Don 3 which is still under production.

The movie, which also brings SRK and Aanand L Rai together for the first time, is slated to release on Christmas 2018.
