King Khan agreed to obey Hirani’s orders as a director and has acted under his supervision. Yes, finally the dream of Raju Hirani (as he’s fondly called) to direct Shahrukh Khan happened and everybody is delighted.
Raju Hirani always wanted to direct SRK for his Munna bhai series; King Khan was also the first choice for ‘3 Idiots’ but it didn’t happen for some reasons.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra tried his best to get the Bollywood superstar to act in his ambitious projects directed by Raju Hirani but somehow it didn’t work out.
Now it seems SRK has realized the potential of Raju Hirani and he agreed to shoot for a film but not a feature film.
It’s an ad film for a popular brand where Raju Hirani has already shot two ads for, one with Kareena Kapoor and another with Amitabh Bachchan.
Raju Hiranis passion and association with the ad world is well known and after the tremendous feedback from his previous ad the brand managed to get SRK and Raju together.
Rajkumar Hirani has started a new division under the banner of Canvas Films. Canvas Films will be headed by Sanjeev Kishinchandani.
Confirming the story, says Sanjeev “Yes, we have shot with Shahrukh, we also worked with Kareena and Mr. Amitabh Bachchan under the same brand.”
