Shah Rukh Khan’s Netflix Original film production Class Of 83 will reportedly star Bobby Deol.
A source tells a Bollywood portal:
“Shah Rukh Khan and Bobby Deol have shared a great friendship since quite some time now.
Bobby is keen on trying out something new and Shah Rukh Khan has always been interested in exploring the web platform further.
Having them collaborate for Class of 83 is definitely something to look out for.”
The source adds:
“The Netflix film is currently under the initial stages. The casting is just being finalised. The process has just kick-started. So it is too soon to comment on the same.”
SRK is also working on a web series titled Bard of Blood for Netflix. It will star Emraan Hashmi in the lead role.
In an interview last year, the Raees actor told the Economic Times:
“It gives an opportunity to a lot of youngsters who didn’t know where to take their small films. So my deal with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and chief content officer Ted Sarandos is not just on paper.
I’ll try and make stuff for you for which I can’t find a theatre and I am non-self-obsessed to know that certain films don’t need to be in the theatre.
Theatres will also change. It will perhaps be more like Broadway where movies will play for six months.”
Shah Rukh’s last film Zero saw him play a dwarf named Bauaa and turned out be a huge disappointment at the box office.
It was directed by Aanand L Rai of Tanu Weds Manu fame and also starred Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif as female leads.
