Everyone dreams to make a movie with Badshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan and Anurag Kasyap is not different. So, Gangs of Wasseypur director Anurag Kasyap says uninhibitedly “I won’t go anywhere without making a film with Shah Rukh Khan… I will write a film that will lure him. He should be attracted to it, he should be dying do the film”
Cinematic universe and choices may be different with both Shahrukh Khan and Anurag Kashyap. However, Anurag has decided that he may not retire from the movie industry until and unless he makes movie with Raees actor Shahrukh Khan. For almost two decades now, Anurag has been making movies. On several occasion, Anurag has tried to work with Shahrukh. However, things have not worked out at the end. Most of the people may not be aware of the fact that Anurag is junior to Shahrukh from Delhi University. Anurag has even said that he has wanted to cast Shahrukh in his movie called “No Smoking.” However, the movie has been done by John Abraham at the end.
On the issue of working in No Smoking, Anurag has said “He wanted to do ‘No Smoking’ and he was very upset when I went away from him. I also went to him with ‘Allwyn Kalicharan.’ I wanted to do that with him and a big superstar from Hollywood. Everything was almost done but then again (it didn’t happen). But we will work together.”
Regarding Shahrukh, Dev D director Anurag Kashyap has said “He is my senior from university, he has been there like a big brother helping me. He is super successful. When he loves you, he approaches things like, in my struggling years, (he used to tell me), ‘if you do what I tell you to do, your problems will disappear’. But I didn’t want him to make my life.” However, Kashyap has also admitted the fact that he can fight with anyone in the movie industry apart from Shahrukh. Anurag has said “He is the only guy I can never speak upto. I can fight with the world but not him. If he scolds me, I’ll sit in a corner and cry. He is someone I have this love for. I love him to death”
