While there is no update on what Shah Rukh Khan is doing next as an actor, reports about him greenlighting new projects as a producer keep surfacing in media every now and then. The latest buzz that has got us really hooked is that the superstar is planning to remake Tamil film Mersal (2017).

Starring Vijay, Nithya Menen, Samantha and Kajal Agarwal in prominent roles, Mersal is an action thriller film, which went on to shatter several box-office records upon its release in 2017. Made on a whopping ₹ 120 crores, the Atlee directed affair raked in around ₹ 260 crores at the cash counter.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan was recently spotted at an IPL match in Chennai where he was accompanied by southern filmmaker Atlee who directed the 2017 Tamil blockbuster. His meeting with the ace director has led to speculations that Khan is planning to remake Mersal in Hindi. Some reports even suggest that the superstar may even star in the Hindi remake of the film.

Khan was last seen in Zero (2018), an extremely ambitious film directed by renowned filmmaker Aanand L Rai. Despite the extensive pre-release buzz and an impressive cast, the movie bombed at the box-office, incurring heavy losses to the actor who had co-produced it with director Aanand L Rai. Since then, Khan has not spoken anything about what he is doing next.
