    It was earlier reported that superstar Shah Rukh Khan is all set to star alongside his daughter Suhana Khan which was titled King. The crime thriller was supposed to be directed by Sujoy Ghosh who is hailed as the master of this genre. However, there is now rather upsetting news for the fans who wished to see the father-daughter duo share the screen space. The latest development suggests that the project has been shelved for now.

    Not only this but the reason for the same is said to be the criticism which Suhana’s performance received in her debut film The Archies. The young actress made her debut with the Netflix film which was helmed by Zoya Akhtar. The movie which also marked the debut of star kids Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda was rather criticized wherein the masses were not convinced with the performances of the main star cast. Well, this is being touted to be one of the reasons for the project to be put on the back burner.

    The reports suggest that Shah Rukh does not wish for his daughter to be compared with him in the project and that he thinks it might be more favorable for her to do movies with other actors at this point. A source close to this development told Times Now, “I don’t think that project is happening, not after The Archies. Suhana needs to find a project as far removed from her father as possible. Earlier, SRK was tempted to get on camera with his daughter ASAP. Now, after The Archies, this historic togetherness is gone on the back burner.”

    King was about to go on floors in January 2024. Well, this might disappoint the fans of the father-daughter duo. On the work front, Shah Rukh delivered three back-to-back hits like Pathaan, Jawan, and Dunki last year. While Suhana is yet to announce her next movie after The Archies.
