Recently, speculations were rife that Atlee will direct Shah Rukh Khan after his Vijay–Nayanthara starrer Bigil that recently hit the screens. The latest buzz is that the film is reportedly titled Sanki and will be a commercial film that will cater to all audiences.
i have a huge amount of love and respect for #SRK sir and he also loves my work. Soon, hopefully, we will do something about it.#AskAtlee https://t.co/3pPL2sXcAz

“The makers of Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee’s next are very keen to name the film Sanki. Shah Rukh will be seen playing the role of a hotheaded hero and that’s why the title. The team might announce the same on the occasion of Shah Rukh’s birthday,” according to a report in Koi Moi.
“More than writer-director, I’m waiting for this as a fan. The news is coming out, I don’t know how immediately this will happen. Atlee sir is going to direct King Khan, SRK. Being a huge fan of SRK, I’m waiting for this combo so that I can also come to that function and see SRK. I’m a huge fan of King Khan,” said Telugu writer-director Harish Shankar recently.
Meanwhile, Bigil which recently crossed the 200-crore mark at the box office has been receiving mixed reviews from fans and audiences. The sports drama bankrolled by AGS Entertainment has Yogi Babu, Vivek, Kathir, Jackie Shroff, Manobala, Daniel Balaji, Anand Raj, Devadarshini, LM Vijayan, Indhuja Ravichandran, Amritha Aiyer, Rebba Monica John, Varsha Bollama and RJ Ananthi. GK Vishnu has handled cinematography and AR Rahman has composed music. T Muthuraj was in-charge of art and Anthony L Ruben has edited this big grosser.
What’s interesting is that Shah Rukh Khan had taken to Twitter to promote Bigil’s trailer, when it dropped. Perhaps indicating his newfound association with the director.
Wish my friends @Atlee_dir & #ThalapathyVijay & @arrahman all the best for this one. Like a Chake De On steroids!! https://t.co/pzvpQ3Imko
