A team of writers is currently working on developing the script of SRK’s film. “There is no clarity on Shah Rukh Khan’s involvement as an actor. At this point of time, he is only producing it,” the source informed, adding that the cast will be decided based on the script. “SRK has always been open to involving other actors in his production ventures.”
Money Heist revolves around a mysterious man who calls himself “The Professor” and recruits eight career criminals.
Shah Rukh’s last production, the Sujoy Ghosh directorial, Badla, featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Amrita Singh, was also a remake of a Spanish thriller, Invisible Guest, adapted to Indian sensibilities and did great at the box office.
