New Delhi: We no longer need say Shah Rukh Khan is 'reportedly' playing a dwarf in director Aanand L Rai's next film - confirmation has been provided direct from the horse's mouth. SRK is currently enjoying the success of his new film Raees and on Monday night, Mr Rai was invited to a party celebrating the film's blockbuster status. At the party, SRK and Mr Rai took a picture in which the 51-year-old actor looks much shorter than his director. "This large hearted graceful superstar can go on his knees to make others look tall. Wah re mere dwarf," wrote the Raanjhanaa director, in a tweet with the photo. The film has not begun shooting yet.

Little is known about the film. Last September, the Tanu Weds Manu director refused to divulge any details about the film's storyline but said that with Shah Rukh Khan in it, it had to be a romance, reported news agency IANS. "I don't want to reveal the story. For now, I am keeping it to myself only. Hopefully, I can bring a great story for the audience. Let me save the suspense for you," said Mr Rai. "When an actor like Shah Rukh is there, it is bound to do something with romance," he added, reported IANS.
Here are some more pictures from the Raees party, which was attended by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sunny Leone, Raees director Rahul Dholakia and producer Ritesh Sidhwani:
Shah Rukh Khan's blockbuster performance in Raees as a liquor baron has been well received by critics and cine-goers alike. Currently, the film's box office score is Rs 93 crores and counting.
