Mumbai: A decade ago, someone, who came to tinsel town with dreams in his eyes, today, we know him as the King of Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan, the man who made a fortune with sheer hard work and incredible dedication towards entertainment industry is about to add a new feather in his hat by literally building an ‘empire’ that would cater to the development and advancement of cinema in India.

B-town is abuzz with reports that SRK has bought a new state-of-the-art office that has cost him a bomb in one of the prime locations of Mumbai. Apparently, terming it an office is an understatement for the star has outdone himself by buying the entire complex and turning it into an office that could put even international similar establishments to shame.

The place is massive, around 40,000 square feet area. He will move his Red Chillies production office, his TV production, Idiot Box and also his VFX studio in this building. It is a 12-floor office and should be fully functional next year. The office is very close to his close friend Karan Johar`s office."

The property was bought by SRK last year, but the building is yet to be named. A source close to SRK added, "SRK plans to move in as soon as the office is ready. It will act as his production house.

His small office on the second floor of Mannat will continue to function as usual, but the majority of his staff will now operate from this new location.

Well, after wrapping ‘Ra.One’, looks like SRK’s been hit by the winds of change in Bollywood.
