Shah Rukh Khan has not appeared on the big screen since October last year, but the actor knows how to make his presence felt. Whether it's cheering from the stands for his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders or chatting with fans on Twitter, SRK hardly goes missing in action.
However, his admirers were disappointed after it was announced that Maneesh Sharma's "Fan" would release next year as some never-seen-before VFX work needs to be done. But, recent reports suggest that it may hit screens a month ahead of Rohit Shetty's "Dilwale".
"The 'Fan' team initially thought of releasing the film in September, on Bakri Eid. Then, there were talks of releasing the film around SRK's birthday (2 November). Now, SRK, producer Aditya Chopra, and director Maneesh Sharma have tentatively decided on a November-end release date," a source said, according to DNA.
Since there has been no official announcement as yet, this can be counted as a mere speculation.
The source further elaborated that the superstar will shoot for Rahul Dholakia's "Raees" until June, afer which he will begin with the Shetty directorial. Since the director is known for wrapping up his films quickly, there's no denying that the project will meet its deadline.
However, if everything works out fine for the "Fan" team, then it will definitely be a treat for Shah Rukh fans.
"SRK will shoot for Raees for a couple of months now and will start Rohit's Dilwale from June. Rohit is known for his speed in executing projects, so Dilwale will definitely meet its December 25 release date. And if all goes as planned for Fan, there will be two SRK films on screens in one month," added the insider.
