Shah Rukh Khan in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire?

If reports are to be believed, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan may play a small but important role in British filmmaker Danny Boyle's next film, Slumdog Millionaire.

The film tells the story of a Mumbai slum kid who contests in the TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati to catch the attention of a girl who watches the programme everyday. It is a love story with unusual twists.

Because Shah Rukh has actually been the host of KBC, it is learnt that Danny Boyle might cast the superstar as the host of the show in Slumdog Millionaire also.

However, no official confirmation of this has yet come either from SRK or from Boyle.

Danny is an acclaimed filmmaker who has directed movies like Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary and The Beach. Slumdog Millionaire has been written by Simon Beaufoy (who wrote the hilarious The Full Monty) and will star Brit newcomer Dev Patel in the lead role.

The movie's shooting will begin in November in Mumbai.
