More on Shah Rukh and Suhana’s film
Shah Rukh is unlikely to play a lead in Suhana’s theatrical debut. He is expected to appear in an extended role, a la Jehangir Khan in Gauri Shinde’s 2016 coming-of-age film Dear Zindagi. The film, co-produced by his banner Red Chillies Entertainment, starred Alia Bhatt in the lead role and Shah Rukh as her therapist.
Suhana will make her debut in cinemas with this new film, as her debut film The Archies, directed by Zoya Akhtar, will premiere on Netflix India on November 24 this year. Her theatrical debut will be co-produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Shah Rukh’s Pathaan director Sidharth Anand’s production house Marflix Pictures.
