Atlee Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan were rumored to team up ever since the duo was spotted along with each other at the recent IPL match. Initially, the actor was said to have a guest appearance in the film but the recent reports suggests that his role will be more than just a cameo.
Talking about it, a source was quoted saying, “SRK has a prominent character that he’s playing in Thalapathy 63. It’s not like his other cameos. In fact, he is the main villain who comes in the picture only towards the climax. He has a good 15 minutes odd role, fighting Vijay. The makers wanted a leading face from the Hindi film industry to shoot for the role and when Atlee approached Shah Rukh for it, he agreed on principle to do it.”
The source further added, “It’s a four-five day shoot and the team is figuring whether to film the scenes in Chennai or in Mumbai itself.”
Shah Rukh Khan’s last movie Zero didn’t do well at the box office and the actor might be next seen in Farhan Akthar’s Don 3. Well, if he signs the dotted line, he will be soon seen sharing screen space with the South super star Vijay.
