Shah Rukh Khan to play both the hero and the villain in Atlee’s film!
Tamil filmmaker Atlee’s ambitious project with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan seems to be on the right track. The director is finalizing the script works with a team of writers. Reportedly, SRK will be seen in a dual role in the film. It must be noted that out of the four films that Atlee has directed so far, two of them, ‘Mersal’ and ‘Bigil’, had the lead actor Vijay in dual and triple roles. Even in ‘Theri’, Vijay played a character with two different shades.
Likewise, with his maiden Hindi film, Atlee is keen on continuing with his habit of exploring multiple shades of the lead actor. SRK will be seen essaying contrasting characters, both as the hero and as the villain. If reports are to be believed, the superstar will be playing the part of an investigating officer and a most-wanted criminal.
Deepika Padukone has been signed to play the female lead’s role. If it materializes, it will be her fourth outing with SRK after ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Happy New Year’.
