Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar says that reports about him planning to collaborate with superstar Shah Rukh Khan on a film are wrong. According to reports, Shah Rukh and Sircar are keen to collaborate on a film that will be based on the Indian Army.
When Asked about it, Sircar told IANS over phone from Melbourne: “No. This is wrong news. I am not aware of it at all. I have no clue. I’m just getting into a film with Varun. That’s already been announced.”
He is in the Australian city for the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne where his 2016 production “Pink” won the Best Film award on Friday. The movie, with a strong social message, has even bagged the National Film Award. But getting recognition in Australia is different for the “Madras Cafe” director.
“It’s a joy and a proud moment for the team, especially because we have got an acknowledgement from the Australian jury. The film has resonated with them as well. That gives a high. It shows that we are on the right path,” he said.
Sircar, unlike most filmmakers, has never locked horns with the Central Board of Film Certification, whose chief Pahlaj Nihalani has now been replaced by writer, lyricist and adman Prasoon Joshi.
