Shah Rukh Khan could reportedly play a villain in his Tamil debut, Bigil starring South-Indian megastar Vijay.
Apparently, his cameo role will be in the film for 15 minutes and could be “the turning point in the climax”.
The media report further suggests that SRK could even shake a leg for a dance number.
Directed by Atlee, Bigil features Vijay in dual roles as father and son and the posters for the film were released recently to mark Vijay’s birthday.
Nayanthara has been paired with Vijay in the film.
Interestingly, Amitabh Bachchan has also shot for his Tamil debut with SJ Suriyah and Ramya Krishnan for the film Uyarntha Mnaithan, directed by Vaanan.
Bigil is slated for release this Diwali and marks the third collaboration of director Atlee with Vijay after Theri and Mersal, which were blockbusters.
Vijay will play a local goon and a football coach in the film.
He underwent special training to get into the skin of the character and reportedly leads a team of women’s football players.
The film also stars Jackie Shroff, Kathir, Yogi Babu and Vivek in pivotal roles.
