Hollywood director Paul Feig says he “would love” to make a film with the Indian superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
The director, who is busy with his film Ghostbusters, also shared that his wife Laurie is a “Bollywood fanatic” and a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan, who has spent over two decades in filmdom.
“I would love to do a film with Shah Rukh. My wife would be so happy,” Feig told said.
Back in May, when Shah Rukh Khan hosted a star-studded dinner party for Apple CEO Tim Cook, Feig’s wife had tweeted: “Some day I hope Paul Feig can be welcome at Mannat! Dream, Shah Rukh Khan.”
Shah Rukh had then invited the couple over for a meal. The Spy director had then responded: “You’re on, Shah Rukh Khan! I’ll bring the ketchup. It would be an honour to meet you. Many thanks, my friend.”
When asked about the virtually fixed dinner date, during a press event organised by Sony Pictures Entertainment for select media from across Asia for Ghostbusters here, Feig shared the fascination he has for Indian cinema and the superstar.
Feig’s wife’s favourite movie is Om Shanti Om, the director said. Right now, it is all about ghosts and women for Feig.
Feig, known for his flair of weaving comedy and action elements into his films, has given a ‘female-centric’ twist to Ghostbusters, a reboot of the famous 1984 eponymous American supernatural horror comedy.
