But Shah Rukh Khan is "glad that the step has been taken and should have been done a long time back". "I'm sure he is really open to it", the 51-year-old actor told DNA. It's about the company, not about individuals.

The Lions' first Test against New Zealand will take place on June 24 at Eden Park in Auckland. In 2009, the players' fee was £38,000 and £22,000 for the last tour of New Zealand in 2005.
While taking about Salman and Karan's production venture featuring Akshay, SRK revealed to a leading daily that even he wanted to make a film with the actor but story didn't work out. Karan Johar will also be producing the movie together with Salman. So, two big companies have come together to make a film with a big movie star. Film making should be collaborative. Current filmmakers lack the creative aspect adds Shah Rukh. The actor has started his own production house Red Chillies Entertainment that has been doing great business lately. SRK has been wanting to bring the epic tale of Mahabharat on the big screen for a while, for which he wants to associate with some big global producers and wants it to be as grand as 'Baahubali'.
Ever since Hollywood created "Lord of the Rings", Indian cinema lovers have been asking this question: When will Bollywood make a similar grand spectacle with Mahabharata? It's been for years now. But I don't think I have the budget to do that. It is being said that the Dabangg Khan aka Salman Khan is soon collaborating with Akshay Kumar for a film. He wants it to go to global markets.
At present, Shah Rukh is busy with his next untitled project, directed by Imtiaz Ali. The actor would be seen sharing the screen space with Anushka Sharma.
