Technology to help Shahrukh Khan Play dwarf in film: Aanand L Rai

Though his chocolate boy image has imprinted itself in the hearts of his fans, Shahrukh Khan has definitely been stepping out of his comfort zone, especially with films like Fan and Raees. Now, the actor is getting ready for perhaps one of the most challenging roles of his career — that of a dwarf in Aanand L. Rai’s new untitled film which is perhaps one the most talked movie of the B`town after Rajinikant and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.O and SS Rajamouli`s Bahubali 2-The Conclusion. Shahrukh Khan is known to carry a huge stardom with him when it comes to fan following and his movies so even without finalizing the title of his upcoming movie with Aanand L Rai the movie is seen generating a lot of buzz. When one thinks of the role, one is usually taken back to the 1989 film, Appu Raja, where Kamal Haasan also played a dwarf. However, Aanand promises that the dwarf played by Shahrukh in his film will be very different from the one played by Kamal. “When Kamal Haasan played the dwarf in Appu Raja, he had only his acting skills to rely on. Today, we’ve a lot of technical advancements at our disposal. We can experiment and innovate and make our character as credible as humanly possible,” says the director. Shahrukh Khan also known as SRK is an Indian film actor, producer and television personality. Referred to in the media as the "Baadshah of Bollywood", "King of Bollywood" or "King Khan", he has appeared in more than 80 Bollywood films, and earned numerous appreciations, including 14 Filmfare Awards. Khan has a significant fan following in Asia and worldwide. In terms of audience size and income, he has been described as one of the most successful film stars in the world.
