It looks as though people have to wait for a little longer to see the Devdas duo, Shahrukh Khan and Sanjay Bhansali working together. In 2017 Khan has mentioned that Bhansali has offered him not one but two scripts to choose from as one of them is a period drama and other is not. Khan mentioned that he is still making his decision about figuring out the dates because he really wanted to work with him though conditions are a little different with Khan might not be able to work with Bhansali at all in near future.
Khan is extremely caught up with ‘Zero’ which is directed by Anand L. Rai and since the film has a lot of visual effects it will take a lot of time to get it right while all his dates are majorly dedicated to that film. Zero will release on 25 December 2018 and till than Khan has absolutely no film coming up. Speculations are that post Zero Khan will start work on his franchise film Don 3 to be directed by Farhan Akhtar. Don 2 came in 2011 and it’s been a long time since he has went into the avatar of a ruthless yet charming killer.
Bhansali on the other hand has been extremely caught up with a havoc called Padmaavat as it is the most controversial film of 21st century Hindi cinema and it has nothing to do with the content of that film but sheer nonsense radical protests that could not have stopped the film to be a gigantic blockbuster. Padmaavat turned out to be the biggest hit of Bhansali’s already decorated career which speaks a lot considering the film still has not released in four major states of India. Many people say that Devdas is Bhansali’s career best work and Khan’s finest performance of all time, where one hopes that magic shall re unite once again.
