No more experimental roles for Shah Rukh

After his flop pairing with Anushka Sharma in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal, Shah Rukh has delivered another devastating dud in Zero with Anuska. It makes his close friends wonder why the actor has made the same mistake again.

Now that the damage has been done, it seems serious introspection is happening at Mannat. His team seems to see a pattern in his recent setbacks.

“The recent flops all have directors with whom Shah Rukh has worked for the first time. Gauri Shinde in Dear Zindagi was an average success, Maneesh Sharma in Fan and Imtiaz Ali in Jab Harry Met Sejal, were both flops. In the light of his failure to gel with first-time directors, Shah Rukh decision to play astronaut Rakesh Sharma in Sare Jahan Se Achcha has been revoked,” said a well-informed source.

“Shah Rukh has politely opted out of Sare Jahan se Achha and has informed producer Siddharth Roy Kapur. Instead, he will now step into the safe zone with Farhan Akhtar. Yes, Shah Rukh is doing Don 3 directed by him, said the source.” No more experimental roles for King Khan!
