It has been more than a half year since the release of Zero (2018), but Shah Rukh Khan is yet to sign his next film. Though his name has been linked to several high-profile films in the past few months, the superstar has time and again said that he is yet to find something interesting to give his nod to. Saare Jahaan Se Accha, Dhoom 4 and Satte Pe Satta (1982) remake are some of the projects that the actor has reportedly been offered.

His name is being associated with yet another project now. And if reports are to be believed, Khan might sign celebrated filmmaker Sriram Raghavan to direct it. Buzz has it that his production house Red Chillies Entertainment has acquired the remake rights of Spanish show Money Heist, with a plan of adapting it as a feature film.

Though there is no confirmation on whether or not Shah Rukh will act in it, some media outlets report that the superstar might come on-board to play the male lead because he has really liked the show. Now, according to the fresh reports, Sriram Raghavan is said to helm this crime thriller.

Raghavan is known for helming some of the finest suspense thrillers ever made in Bollywood. His last directorial was Andhadhun (2018) which went on to become one of the biggest hits of the year gone by. Keeping his love for suspense thrillers in mind, he might give his nod to direct the film adaptation of Money Heist.
