Atlee directing Shah Rukh Khan in his next flick made headlines on the birthday of Bollywood's King Khan on November 2. The title of the movie was said to be Sanki that started as No 1 trend on Twitter.

However, latest news is that it is not likely that SRK and Atlee's movie will be named Sanki, because the title is said to be registered by filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala.

It is said that the title Sanki was recommended by Salman Khan during the shooting of the movie Kick.

A report in Mumbai Mirror stated that Sajid has registered the title Sanki with the Film Producers Guild of India. So, unless Sajid issues a no-objection certificate (NOC), no none else can use the title Sanki.

There are other reports claiming that Shah Rukh Khan after his alleged exit from the project Saare Jahan Se Achha has zeroed in on three directors Rajkumar Hirani, Gurinder Chadha and Atlee Kumar  for his next project.

It is also speculated that Sajid will announce his next project titled Sanki during Christmas.

Earlier, rumours suggested that Shah Rukh Khan will announce his next project on the day of his birthday. But the actor did not reveal anything on the subject.

However, Bigil director Atlee Kumar shared a photo of him visiting Shah Rukh Khan on his birthday. And SRK replied to southern director Atlee, "Thank u for the wishes and it was good to see u!!"

It is sure that Atlee is gotten closer to Shah Rukh Khan, but so far there is no confirmation on SRK's next flick yet.
