Lion is the Name of SRK's New FIlm
Just a few days ago, rumours were doing rounds related to the title of the movie. A letter doing rounds on social media sites revealed that the name of the movie is Lion. Apparently, it was a permission letter seeking permission to park vehicles that arrived at the shooting spot.

Now, the latest buzz is that the movie is inspired by the popular Spanish heist crime drama Money Heist. Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly acquired the rights of the series.

The latest movie of King Khan also deals with bank robbery in which Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in dual roles.
