Shah Rukh Khan and Suhana Khan’s film ‘King’ is set to go on floors by May? Deets inside


The Indian film industry is abuzz with excitement, as the highly anticipated movie ‘King’, featuring the iconic Shah Rukh Khan and his daughter Suhana Khan, is expected to go on floors by May 2024, paving the way for a formidable father-daughter presence on the silver screen.

Suhana Khan recently stepped into Bollywood with a bang, debuting in the highly talked-about movie ‘The Archies’, which was directed by the talented Zoya Akhtar in collaboration with Reema Kagti, and also starred new generation actors such as Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda. Following this widely acclaimed breakthrough, rumors quickly started circulating about her forthcoming collaboration with her superstar father, Shah Rukh Khan, in her next endeavor titled ‘King’.

Initial reports about this collaborative project stirred a wave of enthusiasm among King Khan’s fans. However, the excitement was momentarily dampened when subsequent claims suggested that the movie might not come to fruition. Fortunately, recent updates have reignited the excitement, indicating positive movement towards this venture’s commencement.

According to Pinkvilla, a source intimately involved with the film’s development shared valuable insights. The source revealed that there has been considerable momentum behind the scenes, with director Sujoy Ghosh and action director Siddharth Anand holding multiple meetings and discussions with the Khan duo from October 2023 through February 2024.

The mastermind behind the film’s script remains Ghosh, working closely with Anand and Shah Rukh to plot out an action-packed cinematic experience. The responsibility of crafting the high-octane action sequences has been entrusted to Siddharth Anand, who is known for delivering blockbuster action flicks.

Preparation for ‘King’ is not taken lightly; Suhana Khan has been rigorously training with world-renowned action teams at Mannat, the palatial residence of Shah Rukh Khan. The sessions are said to include the participation of the Bollywood badshah himself alongside his daughter. This training is crucial, as ‘King’ promises to introduce fans to a grittier and more visceral style of action, different from the polished choreography typically associated with the genre.

Moving forward with the cinematic endeavor, Ghosh is already knee-deep in casting for an exceptional ensemble, aiming for a May 2024 kick-off date. Expectations are high for this to be Shah Rukh Khan’s blockbuster release for the year 2025.

Shah Rukh Khan, in his recent promotional visit to Saudi Arabia, openly discussed his children’s careers in an interview with MBC Bollywood, expressing satisfaction about Aryan and Suhana making autonomous decisions to join the film industry. He emphasized the freedom they had in choosing their paths, with Suhana opting for acting, already making headway with one film, and Aryan delving into the craft of film direction.

To set the stage for what promises to be a cinematic extravaganza, Suhana’s keen involvement in bardic performance arts with ‘The Archies’ has already showcased her potential as a budding actress. The thought of her sharing the cinematic frame with her father, Shah Rukh Khan—one of the most celebrated actors in Indian cinema—promises a unique blend of familial chemistry and professional prowess.

Expectations are soaring as the film industry and audiences alike await further buzz and official announcements surrounding ‘King’. This project stands not only as a promising new addition to the rich tapestry of Indian cinema but also as a testament to the remarkable legacy and evolution of talent across generations within the Khan family. As the countdown to the start of production begins, fans worldwide are holding their breath in anticipation of this dynamic pairing, which will, undoubtedly, be a highlight in the annals of Indian cinematic history.
