Suhana to reportedly star alongside Shah Rukh in INR2 billion action film

Production is slated to begin in May

Entertainment Desk April 17, 2024

In what is anticipated to be one of the most significant events in Bollywood for 2025, Shah Rukh Khan is set to dazzle audiences with his return to the big screen in the action-packed film King. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh and with high-octane sequences helmed by Siddharth Anand, King also reportedly marks the cinematic debut of Shah Rukh's daughter, Suhana Khan.

With an impressive budget of INR2 billion, King is being developed by Red Chillies Entertainment and is currently in the rigourous stages of pre-production, Times of India reported. The creative team, having spent the past year refining the script and planning the film’s grand visuals and elaborate action sequences, is committed to setting new benchmarks in the action genre.

Sources close to Bollywood Hungama reported that King is envisioned as a revolutionary action extravaganza. The film aims to blend real action with cutting-edge VFX, a synthesis made possible by enlisting the expertise of top international stunt coordinators. This global collaboration seeks to craft an unparalleled action thriller that promises to captivate both Indian and international audiences.

The production is slated to begin in May and will span over five months, with the premiere planned for the latter half of 2025. This project not only serves as a significant comeback for Shah Rukh after his last appearance in Dunki but also introduces Suhana in a major role, following her acting debut in Zoya Akhtar's The Archies, which premiered on OTT platforms and ignited lively discussions about her performance.

While Shah Rukh and Suhana have yet to comment on these developments, the anticipation around King continues to build. The film industry and fans alike are eager to see the father-daughter duo share the big screen in what is expected to be a groundbreaking addition to Indian cinema.
