There was a time when we were convinced that there could be no better pairing than the Shah Rukh Khan – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan – Madhuri Dixit-Nene and the Madhuri Dixit-Nene – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. We’re still reeling from the Dola Re Dola dance sequence from Devdas.
Now, according to Filmfare‘s sources, the renowned film director is “toying with the idea of casting Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan in his next”. Bhansali has previously worked with both of them separately (Salman Khan worked with him in Khamoshi). Of course, there were rumours aplenty about how the two Khans were sworn rivals but that must have been mere tabloid gossip considering that the duo seems to be getting along just fine in the Zero song.
One can always expect good content from Bhansali (and gorgeous sets and outfits and do we need to say anything about the overall aesthetic?) and if he does decide to go through and make a movie with the two Khans, we can safely predict that it’ll be a huge blockbuster.
