Brett Ratner wants to make Rush Hour in India and Shah Rukh Khan has said yes. Now, give a minute to the news to sink in. For if this really happens, it means Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker and Shah Rukh Khan in the goofball comedy set in India with Ratner behind the camera. Given that SRK and Ratner are in, it may just be a matter of time. At least, we are keeping our fingers crossed.
For those who came in late, Shah Rukh and Brett — the Hollywood director who has given us Rush Hour and X-Men: The Last Stand — met at the 60th San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF). SRK was there to accept a special tribute and he made Brett do the lungi dance too. Soon after, the mutual admiration club between the two had us going aww. But what really got our attention was Brett saying he would like to make Rush Hour with Shah Rukh in India.
Now, this is not the first time that a Hollywood biggie wanted Shah Rukh in a film (sometime back, Hugh Jackman said SRK would be perfect as Wolverine), but it seems this one may just see the light of the day. In an interview to HT, Shah Rukh has also showed enthusiasm and said he would like to be involved with Rush Hour in India. (IE)
