Shah Rukh Khan will soon start shooting for his next, a film with Aanand L. Rai, which will see the actor playing the role of a dwarf. The movie is slated to hit the theatres in December 2018, but has been in news for his leading lady.
There have been several reports making rounds regarding actresses like Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor being approached for the role, but neither Shah Rukh, Aanand or anyone from the team has chosen to speak about the leading lady.

But recent reports now suggest that Deepika might be their final choice, beating all the other actresses. The actress has apparently already given a look test for her role in the film.
If things work out, the actress might start shooting for the same, after she wraps up the shoot of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ co-starring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
It was last year that Deepika gave a look test for Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond The Clouds’, but she couldn’t be part of it. She also recently made her Hollywood debut with ‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage.’
We now wait for an official announcement from Aanand.
