The word is that Yash Raj Films have signed up their favourite SRK again. No, this one isn't a comeback vehicle for old-timer Yash Chopra but a film with Ashutosh Gowarikar's assistant Rakesh Kapoor (the Yash Raj banner is promoting another new talent!)
Rakesh has reportedly said, "I cannot say anything. I just want to thank Adi (Aditya Chopra) as he called me up last week and selected my script and me as director. I am really excited as this will be the biggest film to come out in 2009, touchwood. Shahrukh is fixed and my friends Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are doing the music. We are starting from March after Shahrukh comes back from the US. Adi has said that they will release this film on 2009 Diwali." [an error occurred while processing this directive]
SRK's My Name Is Khan directed by Karan Johar is also releasing around Christmas 2009 and if this film happens it will be a double bonanza for SRK fans. His home production Billoo Barber releases early next year as well.
So it's King Khan all the way in 2009!
