Paul Feig made dinner plans with Bollywood’s ‘Badshah’ Shah Rukh Khan on the virtual world, and now he is keen to take it forward in a more professional way. The Hollywood director says he would love to make a film with the Indian superstar.
The director, who is busy with his film Ghostbusters, also shared that his wife Laurie is a Bollywood fanatic and a big fan of Shah Rukh, who has spent over two decades in filmdom and has earned epithets like ‘King Khan’, ‘King of Romance’ and ‘Badshah’. I would love to do a film with Shah Rukh. My wife would be so happy, Feig said. I won’t see my wife again,” he quipped.
Back in May, when Shah Rukh hosted a star-studded dinner party for Apple CEO Tim Cook Feig’s wife had tweeted, ‘Some day I hope Paul Feig can be welcome at Mannat! Dream, Shah Rukh Khan.
Shah Rukh had then invited the couple over for a meal. The Spy director had then responded: You’re on, Shah Rukh Khan! I’ll bring the ketchup. It would be an honour to meet you. Many thanks, my friend.
When asked about the virtually fixed dinner date, during a press event organised by Sony Pictures Entertainment for select media from across Asia for Ghostbusters here, Feig shared the fascination he has for Indian cinema and the superstar. Right now, it is all about ghosts and women for Feig. He is known for his flair of weaving comedy and action elements into his films, has given a ‘female-centric’ twist to Ghostbusters, a reboot of the famous 1984 eponymous American supernatural horror comedy.
