Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor to come together for Russian film?
Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have been approached by Russian producer Alexey Petruhin for the final film of his VIY trilogy, Journey To India.
Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, who briefly shared screen space in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, could be seen together in Russian producer Alexey Petruhin’s VIY: Journey To India. According to a report in Indian Express, Alexey confirmed that he has approached the two actors. “We have approached SRK to be the lead actor and also the co-producer of the film. We are awaiting confirmation from him. Another actor we have approached is Ranbir Kapoor. We want to bring SRK and Ranbir together,” he said about his project, which he describes as a mystic adventure thriller.
The first installment of the VIY franchise smashed all box office records in Russia on its opening weekend, while the second, titled VIY 2: Journey to China features Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Alexey talked about the final part of the VIY trilogy, “Journey to India is about bringing Russia and India together. It’s a big movie and the budget will be around 40 million US dollars. We were looking for an actor who is like a leader in this industry with his own production house. Like from China, we signed Jackie Chan who is also a producer. So we have approached SRK and I am sure he will be interested in this type of project because it has world-class appeal and the film will be released all over the world.”
Although Shah Rukh Khan has a huge fan following abroad, he is yet to work on an international project. We’re already rooting for SRK and RK to come together on screen!
