Will King Khan beat Tyrion Lannister?

It seems like Shah Rukh Khan is not one to turn down a challenge.

The superstar has done a variety of roles during his reign in Bollywood, which includes a younger lookalike of himself in Fan. And now, Khan has already signed on to play a dwarf in Tanu Weds Manu director Aanand L Rai's next.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, director Rai dished on Shah Rukh's role.

“Shah Rukh plays a dwarf and it is going to be a lot of hard work and patience.”

The director reflected on casting SRK, “Meeting the man makes you believe that nothing can beat experience!" says Rai, "He has seen life not just as an actor but also as a person. He is large-hearted, intelligent and has a great understanding of human beings. I am in love with him. It's the story of a man who is just three-feet-one-inch tall. Nobody understands ordinariness better than Mr Khan. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the dwarf avatar.”

The film will be "a full-fledged love story or a family entertainer with lots of romance.”
