Trust Shah Rukh Khan to take the path less taken. After playing his own fan in his upcoming film Fan, Shah Rukh Khan is reportedly all set to play a dwarf in Aanand L Rai's (of Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu fame) next directorial venture.

According to a report by DNA, director Aanand L Rai is super excited to have Shah Rukh Khan in the team. And while the director hasn't finalised the female lead, he's confirmed 2 things.

One, that Shah Rukh Khan will be playing a dwarf, and two, there'll be many romantic songs in the movie.

...It'd be super interesting to watch King Khan play a dwarf.

Earlier, Salman Khan was supposed to portray the role in the film, but looks like Salman's loss is Shah Rukh Khan's gain.
