Shah Rukh Khan, who is busy with Anand L Rai's Zero, seems to be planning his next project. If reports are to be believed, the superstar is likely to team up with Baahubali writer KV Vijayendra Prasad for a revenge drama post the release of Zero.

Zero: Not just Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma also have interesting roles

Prasad, who had penned Salman Khan-starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika besides the Baahubali series, has approached SRK with a script. "He has written the story keeping SRK in mind. The two recently had a meeting in Mumbai. Prasad flew down from Hyderabad and narrated the story to Shah Rukh," a source told DNA.

However, Shah Rukh hasn't given his nod to the movie as of now. "He met Prasad, but he is yet to take a call on the film. He will wrap up Zero before announcing his next project. He's still deciding which one to pick," adds the source.

Besides Prasad's new revenge drama, he has been roped into pen down the sequels to Anil Kapoor's Nayak and Akshay Kumar-starrer Rowdy Rathore as well.

Meanwhile, Zero, which has been making a huge buzz, will see Shah Rukh play a man with dwarfism. Recently, it was revealed that not just SRK, but Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma will also essay special roles. While Katrina's character is a drunkard and battles alcoholism, Anushka will be seen as a struggling scientist.

The film is set to release on December 21, 2018. In an interview, director Aanand L Rai had said that the "dwarf is not the character" but just defines the size of his character. He said like his other films, this film too will tell the story of a man and a woman. Anand also doesn't want fans to think it'll be the story of a "dwarf," but rather be looked at as a story of a short man.
