It’s been a long time since Shah Rukh Khan has announced any project after he was last seen in Anand L Rai’s ‘Zero’ that tanked at the box office. Upset and shaken by the response to his film, Khan backed out of all projects he was a part of and took some time off. 

With rumours building on what he must be busy with, Khan took to Twitter recently to clarify that he hasn’t signed any film as he wrote, “It’s always nice to know that in my absence & behind my back, I have surreptitiously signed so many films that even I am not aware of!! Boys & girls I do a film when I say I am doing it....otherwise, it’s just post truth.”

At the Ted Talks India event that took place yesterday, Khan opened up on what he’s busy with next. He said that he is working on two to three scripts and will announce in a month or two. During the event, he said, “I am thinking and taking some time. I am working on two or three scripts and, Inshallah, as soon as they are ready, I am ready. Because most of the people with whom I am working are busy so, Inshallah, I will announce it myself. I feel till the time rumours are floating around, it's good because some of them have given me ideas.”

He added that there was one film people said that “I am going to do -- Tarzan and Jane and now, I really want to do the role of Tarzan (laughs). But no. I think, Inshallah, in another month or two, I will figure out everything.”

Shah Rukh Khan recently produced Netflix series ‘Bard of Blood’ starring Emraan Hashmi in a leading role. The show is streaming now.
