en Bollywood News After Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan to reunite with music director Anirudh Ravichander for King: Report

Filming is expected to begin in May 2024 and continue for five months. The highly anticipated movie is slated for a theatrical release in the second half of 2025.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is all set to enthrall audiences in a brand new avatar! His next film, titled King, promises to be a raw and action-packed thriller with a complex twist. King marks the much-anticipated silver screen debut of Suhana Khan, SRK’s daughter. It was reported earlier that Khan will portray a powerful don with a ‘shades of grey’ personality, reminiscent of his iconic roles in Darr, Anjaam, and Raees. This character, described as "intriguing" and "cool," caters to the audience's desire to see him in darker roles. Details about Suhana’s character are under wraps, but reports suggest she'll play the role of Khan's ‘disciple’, hinting at a unique mentor-protégé dynamic within the film's dangerous world.

After Jawan, Shah Rukh Khan to reunite with music director Anirudh Ravichander for King: Report

Following the blockbuster success of Jawan, with King, Shah Rukh Khan will reunite with music director Anirudh Ravichander. Anirudh is said to be composing a unique score that complements the film's action-packed narrative. King is a passion project for Khan, where he's heavily involved in development alongside co-producer Siddharth Anand and director Sujoy Ghosh. They're crafting a character that's both ruthless and stylish. Khan is said to be overseeing the creative process, even participating in action sequence training with his co-star, Suhana Khan.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, a source revealed, “King is a one of its kind action thrillers, that will introduce a new flavour of action to the audience. Shah Rukh Khan, Siddharth Anand and Sujoy Ghosh understand the importance of BGM for a film in this space and have roped in the best in business – Anirudh.”

King is envisioned as a fast-paced action extravaganza unlike anything seen before. The makers are aiming for a "raw and rustic" feel with a hefty budget of Rs. 200 crores. Pre-production has been underway for a year, meticulously crafting every aspect from script to action sequences.

Siddharth Anand is reportedly bringing in international stunt directors for a global appeal. The action sequences will be a hybrid of real stunts and VFX enhancements, promising a visually stunning experience. “The pre-production work for King has already begun and the makers are aiming to take the film on floors by August 2024. There is a possibility of an announcement via a proper video asset and Anirudh is already working on the theme music for the film,” the source added.

Bollywood Hungama earlier reported that Shah Rukh Khan himself is overseeing the creative process and even training with Suhana for some of the film's action sequences. “King is an ambitious action film, unlike anyone's imagination. The team has been working on the pre-production for the last one year to ensure that all aspects are covered in the right way - from script, to scale and action. Red Chillies Entertainment has always mounted world-class products and King will be no different as the banner is going all out to ensure a grand debut for Suhana Khan,” a source said.

The source further informed that Siddharth Anand is in talks with stunt directors from the West to come on board King. “Siddharth Anand thinks internationally, and with SRK, he wants to make a global action thriller. He is designing stunts with the stunt experts from the West, and plans to shoot it as a hybrid of real action and VFX enhancements,” the source told us further.

Filming is expected to begin in May 2024 and continue for five months. The highly anticipated movie is slated for a theatrical release in the second half of 2025.
