Shah Rukh Khan to reprise DiCaprio 'Departed' role?

Shah Rukh Khan will reportedly play a policeman in a Bollywood remake of Martin Scorsese's The Departed.

According to the Hindustan Times, Khan will play a role similar to that of Leonardo DiCaprio in the Hollywood film, which itself was a remake of Hong Kong thriller Infernal Affairs.

Discussions allegedly started when Khan met with Scorsese and DiCaprio earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival

Reports suggest that the film would be co-produced by Khan and Vishal Bhardwaj, who are in the process of attempting to get remake rights from the makers of The Departed.

If the picture was to go ahead, it would be the second time Khan has played a policeman in a film, having previously played a man in uniform in One 2 Ka 4.
