Shah Rukh Khan is not just an actor, but also a successful producer. Last year, he tasted success with his production venture Badla which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles. He is currently producing a Netflix ‘s original titled Class of ’83 and Abhishek Bachchan starrer Bob Biswas.

Now, according to a report in a tabloid, SRK is all set to produce a film based on the 2018 Muzaffarpur shelter mass abuse case. The untitled movie will be helmed by Pulkit who had earlier directed a show titled Maroon which was based on Subhas Chandra Bose.

A source told the tabloid, “He (Pulkit) has done extensive research for the film, which will have a journalist as the protagonist and is expected to roll in July. The cast will be finalised shortly.” It will be interesting to see which actor will be roped in to play the lead role in the movie.

In 2018, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences conducted a social audit of shelters across Bihar. During this, it was revealed about the sexual abuse of girls at a Muzaffarpur short-stay home run by the NGO Seva Sankalp Evam Vikas Samiti. An FIR was registered and the girls were rescued.

Talking about SRK’s films as an actor, he was last seen on the big screen in 2018 release Zero which failed to make a mark at the box office. While he is yet to officially announce his next film, there are reports of him starring in Raj & DK’s next. The director duo has also confirmed that they have narrated their script to SRK. Well now, we just wait for an official announcement.
