Mumbai, June 29 -- Once he is done with his upcoming Eid release, Chennai Express (CE), Shah Rukh Khan might just another exciting assignment on offer. The actor might play a Gujarati don in his next film. Apparently, the superstar has given an "in-principle nod" to director Rahul Dholakia's (who made Parzania; 2005) yet-untitled next.

"In the film, Shah Rukh is supposed to play a large-hearted Gujarati don. Since the project is in the nascent stages, not many are aware of it. Dholakia has already met Shah Rukh a few times about the film and for narrations," says an industry insider.

Interestingly, SRK will team up with his Don series makers, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani (of Excel Entertainment), for Dholakia's venture. "SRK trusts Farhan and Ritesh's judgment and vision. Besides, the three of them are good friends. Since he has given his nod just a few days back, things will slowly kick off now,"
