Yash Chopra's film and Rohit Shetty's film are the only two projects Shah Rukh Khan will be working on this year. But that doesn't mean he isn't considering other films.
While both Salman Khan and Aamir Khan have gone ahead and worked in South remakes, Shah Rukh Khan has been offered one now. The film in question is Gautham Menon's 2006 Tamil hitVettaiyaadu Valaiyaadu. The murder-mystery had Kamal Hassan play a cop who is in search of a serial killer. In fact sources insist that it is Kamal Hassan who suggested Shah Rukh Khan's name for the Hindi remake.
So what is stopping Shah Rukh Khan from signing the film? Other than the fact that he is busy with two projects, buzz is that the film falls in the same genre as Aamir Khan's upcoming thrillerTalaash. Talaash has Aamir Khan playing a cop who is in search (Talaash) of a killer.
Knowing the game, trade circles predict that since playing a cop is new territory for Shah Rukh, he wants to first check the kind of response that Talaash gets. That means he will have to wait another five months before he makes his mind.
So now it seems it's not just Aamir Khan but also his followers who will take their own sweet time before they reach upon a decision.
