SRK-Suhana come together for action thriller
A source close to the development told the portal, “The film has been titled King and will be a one-of-a-kind action thriller with strong dynamics shared by Shah Rukh Khan and Suhana Khan. One would have expected SRK and Suhana to team up on a relatively soft film against the backdrop of father and daughter, but they are ready to break the norm by collaborating for the first time on an action thriller.”
Shoot to commence from January
The report added that prep work is going on in full swing and non-stop shooting could commence from January 2024. As per the portal, director Sujoy Ghosh is busy with the pre-production of King, and has also given final touches to the script of this action thriller.
“The flavour of action in King will be very different from what SRK has done in Pathaan and Jawan. This one would be sleek with a lot of chase sequences. However, the core plot is emotional and driven by the story. It has lots of twists and turns, which is the reason why Sujoy has been bestowed with the responsibility of direction,” the source said.
