Bollywood director Sriram Raghavan has been on a high ever since his last film ‘Andhadhun’ released starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Tabu in lead roles. 

According to rumours, impressed with his work in the film, Shah Rukh Khan has met with the director regarding a project. Sriram apparently went to Khan’s house and rumour has it that they met for a script narration.

Reacting to these rumours, the director has now rubbished all rumours of working with Khan and said that he met the superstar for a casual chat. In a report published in DNA, Sriram said that Khan had invited him for a chat about the film ‘Andhadhun’. He mentioned that Khan liked the film and wanted to talk to him about it. 

Sriram said, “I have not pitched a script. I just met him. He had liked 'Andhadhun' and invited me over. We had a chat. I told him if I have something I'll definitely come to him. I've got his number now and I can always approach him. I would love to see him in my world of cinema but I need to get the right script.”

Meanwhile, Sriram is working on the script of a biopic based on the life of posthumous Param Vir Chakra Arun Khetarpal, second lieutenant of the Indian army that is titled ‘Arun’. He mentioned that scripting will be done soon. He will get to the casting of the film only once that gets complete.

Shah Rukh Khan is still looking for scripts as he is said to have become more cautious of what project he signs after the debacle that ‘Zero’ was. Starring Khan with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, the film proved to be a disappointment at the box office.
