The director is currently working with Siddharth Anand under the latter’s banner Marflix Pictures (recently produced Fighter) for his next titled King.

For the unversed, Suhana Khan, who made her film debut with The Archies in 2023, will be making her theatrical debut alongside her superstar-father with this highly anticipated venture. A recent Peeping Moon article has now reported that Shah Rukh Khan, who was expected to have a special appearance of sorts in the movie, has now become the lead of this action entertainer with Suhana Khan as the parallel lead.

Speaking on how the makers arrived at this decision, a source was quoted saying, “The SRK-Suhana film has undergone multiple rewrites and polishing in the past few months. The project was earlier intended to be a mega theatrical debut vehicle for Suhana, with SRK merely playing a cameo, much like he did in Alia Bhatt's Dear Zindagi. But the script has now been altered, turning it into a proper Shah Rukh Khan film, with Suhana playing a parallel lead alongside him.”

Apart from this, the reports also reveal that Shah Rukh Khan will not be playing the father of Suhana but will be portraying the character of her mentor. Furthermore, it is being said that the superstar’s character is going to be badass who will be saving Suhana’s character from dangerous situations she often finds herself in.

Meanwhile, talking about King, we hear that Sujoy Ghosh and Siddharth Anand will be collaborating for the pre-production from May onwards whereas the film is said to go on floors somewhere around August–September. As for the release date, the makers are looking at releasing the movie during the second half of 2025, but no date has been revealed as yet.
