Anushka Sharma will be seen opposite SRK in Imtiaz Ali’s next.

Shah Rukh Khan organized an Eid Fest at Mannat today for the media folks to talk about a myriad things, including his future Bollywood projects. It was here that he confirmed that Anushka Sharma will be a part of Imtiaz Ali’s next.On being asked about the film, he said “I wanted to do a happy film with him (Imtiaz Ali). Because I am in that zone right now. I really liked Jab We Met. So yeah he has a film for me. He has a different language of love. So yes this is a love story. But, keeping my age in mind now, this is not like a young upbeat love story. But he has a very nice take on it.” He has also confirmed that he will start working on the film from August this year.

Shah Rukh and Imtiaz have remained great friends and have been keen on working with each other. While Imtiaz is known for making unconventional love stories, SRK is known for taking risks and experimenting with his roles. We can’t contain our excitement, what about you?

Ever since Shah Rukh made the official announcement about the film in March, there were rumors doing the rounds that the 50-year-old actor will play the role of a Sikh guide and reunite with his Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi co-star. But he had never confirmed having her on board until today. This will be the third time that they will be coming together in a romantic film after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

BollywoodLife had told you earlier that SRK’s role is inspired by Dev Anand’s role in Guide. “Shah Rukh plays a tourist guide. Like Devsaab in Vijay Anand’s film, there are many twists and turns in the Shah Rukh’s character graph. He has a moral epiphany that changes his life and that of others he encounters,” said a well-informed source.

The actor has finished shooting Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagii and and will now complete shooting for Raees.
