Shah Rukh Khan’s next is a War movie Based on Operation Khukri
Recently, the ‘Baadshah’ of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan has been doing diverse roles that are different from his usual romantic movies. Is Shah Rukh Khan’s next movie based on war? Yes, SRK is working on a script that is based on ‘Operation Khukri’, which is considered to be one amongst the most ambitious project, a rescue operation carried out by Indian Army and Indian Air Force to rescue Indians who were held captive by rebels in Sierra Leone, West Africa back in the year 2000.
The movie is still in its inception phase and the star-cast has not been finalized as of yet. Before this, SRK had played the role of an army officer in the movie ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, Farah Khan’s ‘Main Hoon Na’, and ‘Army’. Coincidentally, the very first serial in SRK’s career was ‘Fauji’ where he played the role of an army person. Although it is not yet finalized whether SRK will play the lead role, but, we are eagerly waiting and very much excited to see SRK donning the costume of an army person.
The yet untitled movie is produced under Shah Rukh Khan’s banner Red Chillies Entertainments. This is reportedly the most expensive movie for SRK’s production house, the costliest project before this was ‘Ra-one’. A lot of research is involved in the making of this movie so that it is authentic. It will be primarily shot in various locations of South Africa. This movie will showcase all the elements that are needed for a war movie.
“It has been researched extensively and will be mounted on a really large scale. It will be a true depiction of a massive military operation and will celebrate our heroes. The director and cast are being finalized, the film will roll later this year. It will be shot in real locations in Africa with some real armed combat battle scenes,” a source from Red Chillies Entertainments was quoted in the report.
Recently, there has been a trend in Bollywood of making war based movies. Earlier, Akshay Kumar had made ‘Airlift’ which talked about the evacuation of 1,70,000 Indians from war-struck Kuwait, Salman Khan’s next movie ‘Tubelight’ is also based on the Sino-Indian war that happened way back in 1962 between India and China for a disputed Himalayan border.
SRK was last seen in the action-thriller film Raees. Shah Rukh Khan will also be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s next movie ‘The Ring’ paired alongside Anushka Sharma.
