The Ring is an upcoming Indian romantic drama film written and directed by Imtiaz Ali. It features Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, and Evelyn Sharma in the lead roles.In the film, Shah Rukh is said to be playing a tourist guide and would be seen opposite actress Anushka Sharma. Imtiaz Ali (born 16 June 1971, Bihar) is an Indian film director and writer. He started his career with writing and directing television shows. He directed shows like Imtehaan, Naina and Kurukshetra. In 2005 he made his directorial debut with Socha Na Tha, that did not do well. Then he earned critical and commercial success for his direction of Jab We Met (2007). Love Aaj Kal (2009) and Rockstar (2011) made him known amongst youngsters. Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali forthcoming movie with superstar Shah Rukh Khan is an attempt to break free from all assumptions, and work on something which the two of them have not done so far. Tentatively titled The Ring, slated for release in August next year, the movie marks first collaboration between the 51-year-old actor and the director. Imtiaz, whose last film was Tamasha, says he did not want to stick to a certain kind of movie-making and feels even the Fan actor wanted to come out and try something new. “For me, I didn’t want to fall into pattern of certain type of film. And he (Shah Rukh) wanted to break out of the pattern that he was in. That’s the reason why we got to work.” Unlike Imtiaz’s last three films -- Tamasha, Highway and Rockstar -- the music of which was scored by A R Rahman, The Ring will bring back composer Pritam, who dished out chartbuster music for the director’s movies like Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal. When asked if The Ring will be in a similar space to these two films, Imtiaz said as of now his aim is to just make the film honestly without any comparisons. “I am not really thinking of it that way. I am just thinking of this particular story and trying to make it in the best way possible, whether it turns out closer to Jab We Met or Rockstar, that I don’t know,” he said.
