Shah Rukh to make Bollywood's costliest movie!

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is spending an estimated Rs.1 billion, for perhaps the costliest Bollywood movie to be made, so far!

The movie for children will be in the VFX medium, using computer-generated special effects.

"It will be a movie featuring a lot of children, who wish for bad things, but get a shocking reality check when they come true", Shah Rukh told Patrick Frater of Variety (Hollywood's top trade magazine) in a recent interview in Berlin.

He is talking to Eros Multimedia and Charles Darby (of The Matrix and Minority Report fame), who recently co-ventured with Eros to launch Mumbai-based special effects Eyeqube Studios.

Shah Rukh said he was planning the movie under his home banner, Red Chillies Productions.

The new venture - to be directed by Anubhav Sinha - has a budget of $25 million (almost Rs.1 billion), making it the most expensive Bollywood movie to date!

"We are dedicating the next eight-nine months, taking the best technicians from around the world and asking them to help us make the best VFX film India has ever made. It will be madcap, over the top. I want it to be as beautiful as Spider-Man in terms of effects," Khan told Variety.

Stay tuned in!

Thank God he is not doing the movie. Or else I would not have known whether to smile or to frown seeing those two together on one screen.

Vaise...may I ask, why do you hate SRK so much, buddy?

Take care!
