Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was almost slated to share the screen with Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio in a gangster movie titled ‘Xtreme City’.
In one of his previous interviews, SRK has claimed that he was offered a number of movies in the west but he never found any of them interesting.
As per reports, Shah Rukh Khan, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Martin Scorsese met during the Berlin Film Festival in 2011. Their meeting to discuss Xtreme City was made possible by Hollywood producer David Weisman, writer, Paul Schrader, and Bollywood screenwriter Mushtaq Shiekh.
Reportedly, Xtreme City was touted to be an action thriller, where Leonardo DiCaprio was supposed to play the character of a cop, while Shah Rukh Khan the gangster.
Shah Rukh Khan and Leonardo DiCaprio starrer Xtreme City never got to see the day of light and even actors never talked about the shelved project.
On the work front, the actor is shooting for two big Bollywood projects, YRF’s Pathan and Atlee Kumar’s tentatively titled, Lion. He was last seen in the 2018 film Zero, which bombed at the box office.
On the other hand, Leo was last seen in Netflix’s recently released film Don’t Look Up also featuring Jennifer Lawrence in the main lead.
