Is Shah Rukh Khan reuniting with the team of Raees for this film?

Shah Rukh Khan starred in and as Raees in Rahul Dholakia’s action-drama last year. And now, reports suggest that they might reunite for a film, produced by Excel Entertainment, which produced the above film as well. Rahul Dholakia has teamed up with Excel again for a film on a fire-fighter called Tukaram, who teaches how to respond to the emergency calls. Will SRK be the leading man for the second time in his film, the director said, I need a 40-plus actor to play Tukaram.” 

He was quipped how one of his producers Farhan Akhtar is also 40 plus, to which he responded, “So, is Shah Rukh and many others. We will definitely cast an A-list actor but right now both the title and the cast are under discussion.”

He also shared how the idea cropped up, A series of fires in the city of late makes me believe that it’s time for a film that celebrates these unsung heroes. For me, the firefighters are on par with cops and soldiers, but their heroics have gone largely unacknowledged even in a city of skyscrapers. They put their lives on the line every other day to put out and save us from fires which sometimes spark off from our own carelessness and violation of safety norms. They are also called to pull a child out of a borewell, rescue a kitten from the roof, clear an uprooted tree from the road and help during a building collapse or a deluge. Even during the 26/11 attacks they played a significant role in the rescues but went unheralded.”

Let’s see who comes on board for this brave subject!
