It appears that audiences might see the three Khans working together on the big screen after all. According to a report published on Mumbai Mirror, actor Shah Rukh Khan has shot a cameo for Aamir Khan’s upcoming film, Laal Singh Chaddha. It has further been claimed that the film’s director Advait Chandan wants Salman Khan to also have a brief role in the film as well.

Shah Rukh had reportedly had very discreetly shot his cameo scene in Delhi last month, before flying off to the UAE for the latest edition of Indian Premier League, where his team Kolkata Knight Riders, was participating. Shah Rukh’s character is set in the mid-’90s and he would be revisiting his character Raj Malhotra from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.

“The screenplay weaves in iconic moments from each decade and since we love our matinee idols, Chaddha’s journey would be incomplete without certain top stars," the unamed source had revealed to Mumbai Mirror. "So, during this journey of self-discovery. Aamir lands on the sets to Shah Rukh around the release of DDLJ and sharing his personal experiences, engages with the wonder world. He’ll go back to 1995 and look like a younger version of himself with the use of prosthetics and VFX.”

The report further added that the director wants Salman to reprise Prem from his Hum Aapke Hain Koun!, Main Pyar Kiya and Hum Saath Saath Hain avatars. “His Prem wooed the audience in the ’90s, from Main Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hai Koun! to Hum Saath Saath Hai and Aamir is keen to get Salman back as Prem in his social dramedy. there’s a track set in 1989 that depicts a change in audience taste, from action to romance, and a craze around Salman. There are expected to finalise the details soon,” said the source.

Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir and Kareena Kapoor Khan, is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ Hollywood classic, Forrest Gump. Aamir plays a Sikh character in a film that has been written by Atul Kulkarni. The film will also star Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi in an important role. The film, like the original, will span over five decades in the life of the main character.
