Shah Rukh Khan has given Tarun Mansukhani a new task, after the director directed a few scenes for his home production Ra.One. Now that Dostana 2 is on hold, the D2 director will pen a fresh script for SRK and Priyanka Chopra. Since the suggestion came from Khan, Mansukhani was more than happy to jump at it.
A source reveals, "For now, there's a complete stalemate over the Dostana sequel. Tarun has finished writing the sequel but producer Karan Johar is not happy with the second half. After many rewrites, Mansukhani has now given up. Anyway he is committed to do a film with Karan's production house, the PC-SRK film might just be the thing. Dostana released in 2008, and the director has been raring to start his second film, and has kept himself busy directing commercials."
SRK opined that since Dostana 2 was on hold, Tarun should come up with something featuring PC and him. The source adds, "SRK has already had a chat with Karan and has expressed his desire for the Dostana director to come up with a subject for the pair."
While details on the project are not known, the source confirms that Tarun is quite excited with the prospect of writing a plot for them. "He has already shown interest and will begin work on a script."
