Aanand L Rai's film casts Shah Rukh in the role of a "vertically challenged" person as the protagonist. Talking about his role, the actor said: "It is a movie on a vertically challenged special person. I enjoyed while shooting for the film. I think technically these kind of films should be made in India. I feel proud that my team is doing that," reported IANS.
Shah Rukh Khan-led Red Chillies Entertainment, which is producing the movie, has set up a brand new office in Mumbai's Goregaon area for the film's extensive post production edits. "At this time, it is possible to make such films. We have completed 12-15 days of shooting. We have to edit 11-12 minutes of the film. Anand had told me that we should edit and see it first. It took two months to edit 30 seconds. We have made an office in Goregaon, specially for the film," Shah Rukh added in his interview, reported IANS.
Shah Rukh Khan co-stars with Anushka Sharma along with actors like Ronit Roy, Zeeshan Ayub and Deepak Dobriyal in the film, which is expected to release sometime next year.
