Mumbai: Post rather unceremonious fallout with Salman Khan and brothers, Abhinav Kashyap has plans now to make a film with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. News has it that Viacom18 Motion Pictures have teamed up with Movie Temple Productions to produce ‘Dabangg’ director Kashyap`s second directorial venture, which is tentatively titled ‘Project 18’.

Earlier, however it was reported that Abhinav Kashyap had denied signing any film with the production house. But if sources are to be believed, this development has happened in the last 48 hours.

Revealing more a source said, "It was Kashyap`s friend Sunil Bohra who intervened and made things possible for Kashyap. Bohra has been a close associated with the Studio 18 and has been involved in a couple of films with them. After Kashyap left ‘Dabangg 2’, he immediately signed a film with Viacom 18. He has already met SRK and expressed his desire to work with him."

On the other hand SRK is reportedly equally kicked up about working in an action thriller with Abhinav. Abhinav, who gave last year’s biggest hit of Bollywood.
