Why Salman Khan didn’t do the ‘Dwarf’ Film Reveals Shah Rukh Khan. SRK confirms why Salman Khan couldn’t do Aanand L Rai’s Dwarf Film which he is doing now.
When asked if it was difficult to convince Salman for the cameo, Shah Rukh says “not at all”. “He is very kind. This (role) was written a long time back in the film, from the first narration onwards. Salman has also heard the script, I think Aanand wanted to make the film with him at one time. They didn’t have the time, things didn’t work out and VFX wasn’t ready,”
The actor says they were having a get-together at home when Salman dropped by to give Shah Rukh and his children his newly launched e-cycle. “We were at home, Aanand was there when Salman just walked in to say hi to me. He got his new e-cycle for me and for Aryan and Suhana as well. Aanand said I should ask him. I said, ‘Salman, there’s one role’, he said, ‘Yeah, let me know’.”
“Then, everything just worked out perfectly. He had two days off, we needed ten days to put up the set,” says Shah Rukh. The yet-to-be-titled film also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif and marks the first collaboration between Shah Rukh and the ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ director.

The 51-year-old actor says the team is happy with the way the film is shaping up, which would require a lot of VFX. “He (Rai) has edited some portions, we have a good amount of film ready. He said, ‘Sir, please watch it, it’s looking good and this is without the technical part’. It’s a really interesting and exciting film.” “I am saying it’s good not because I am showing off but it’s so different. We are really happy with what we have achieved so far,” he adds.
Shah Rukh, meanwhile, is gearing up for the release of his next, Jab Harry Met Sejal, directed by Imtiaz Ali. The film, which also features Anushka, is scheduled to release on August 4
