At least, we are keeping our fingers crossed. But we’ll see how things go. The actor himself said about this compliment, “Brett is very gracious and sweet. Now, this is not the first time that a Hollywood biggie wanted Shah Rukh in a film (sometime back, Hugh Jackman said SRK would be perfect as Wolverine), but it seems this one may just see the light of the day. For those who came in late, Shah Rukh and Brett — the Hollywood director who has given us Rush Hour and X-Men: The Last Stand — met at the 60th San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF). And it’s high time that such a wonderful and beautiful action-comedy film came to India. Now, this part is true, but I don’t know about the other.”

Soon after, the mutual admiration club between the two had us going aww. SRK said in the interview, “He (Brett Ratner) asked me, ‘What role should I pen you in?’ And I said, ‘it can be whichever role and I’ll do it’. Now, give a minute to the news to sink in. Brett Ratner wants to make Rush Hour in India and Shah Rukh Khan has said yes. So, I think that’s his way of showing appreciation for the fact that I’ve done different kinds of roles. But it was sweet of him to say that. I’ll get involved in some way or the other. 2017-04-17T09:55:03+00:00″>

For those who came in late, Shah Rukh Khan and Brett Ratner– the Hollywood director who has given us Rush Hour and X-Men: The Last Stand — met at the 60th San Francisco International Film Festival. I’ll do the production for him if I am not acting.”

Given that Ratner thinks SRK is Tom Cruise, The Rock, Tom Hanks and Jackie Chan rolled into one, this film may have SRK doing everything. He also said that, ‘I smell very delicious’. But what really got our attention was Brett saying he would like to make Rush Hour with Shah Rukh in India. In an interview to HT, Shah Rukh has also showed enthusiasm and said he would like to be involved with Rush Hour in India. In no way whatsoever do I think that I’m better than even one of them. But he kept saying that my body of work has been quite varied over the last 25 years and he respects that a lot. But one thing I did request him to do — whether it’s with me or not – is to get Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker to shoot in India because Rush Hour is all over the world. When he said that, he was not trying to compare me to any of those wonderful stars that he mentioned. SRK was there to accept a special tribute and he made Brett do the lungi dance too. Given that SRK and Ratner are in, it may just be a matter of time.
