The latest B-Town buzz is that filmmaker R Balki is apparently working on a script that will bring Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan together. The two stars worked together in films like Mohabbatein, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Bhootnath.
Says a source, “Balki is known to be extremely guarded about his projects. So there are hushed whispers that the writer-director has already sounded the Big B about the project.” Balki’s earlier two films Cheeni Kama and Paa were with the Big B. Adds the source, “Considering his comfort with the Big B, he cannot think of making a film without Bachchan.
The script he is presently working has created space for his favourite star as well as King Khan. Getting the two superstars to work together again is on his agenda. This will be one interesting casting to watch out for.
Now that SRK is back on his micro-blogging site after a hiatus, he has been posting messages about pain and healing after his recent surgery. Yesterday he wrote, “They say you learn from Pain. By that maxim & the nite that went by, i should be a Genius. Triple Nine Society here I come…!!”
Incidentally, The Triple Nine Society is a group of individuals who have scored at or above the 99.9th percentile on specific IQ tests!
Earlier King Khan posted, “Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls your life.”(MD)
