While rumours of Asim Riaz getting his break in Bollywood have been doing the rounds for a while, the Bigg Boss runner up appears to have already shared screen time with Shah Rukh Khan. A fan has unearthed an old clip from a commercial featuring SRK and Katrina Kaif, which was made close to the release of their 2012 film Jab Tak Hai Jaan. In the clip, Shah Rukh plays the guitar and serenades a group of people. Asim is among the group of actors who applaud and join him towards the end.
Bigg Boss 13 ended in a grand finale on 15 February, with Siddharth Shukla the winner and his foe-turned-friend Asim Riaz the runner-up. Recently, it was speculated that Asim would star opposite Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan in Student of the Year 3. Karan Johar, who produced the franchise, was forced to take to Twitter to dispel the rumour . “Absolutely baseless stories making the rounds of SOTY3!!!! My request to everyone publishing this fabrication is to kindly Stop! Please!” he tweeted.
While there’s no official word on SRK’s next film, he is backing Hardik Mehta directorial Kaamyaab, which stars Sanjay Mishra and Deepak Dobriyal. He is also producing thriller Bob Biswas through Red Chillies Entertainment. The film is a spin-off about eponymous contract killer from Vidya Balan-starrer Kahaani. It will be helmed by Divya Annapurna Ghosh, daughter of Kahaani director Sujoy Ghosh.
