Penelope Cruz shows interest in Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan is the most wanted Khan as far as Penelope Cruz is concerned.

Oscar nominated Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is very keen on Indian movies and says she would love to work opposite Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Cruz, who has been nominated for an Oscar in the best actress category for her role in the Spanish movie "Volver", expressed her respect for the Indian megastar's great body of work.

This is not the first time that she has expressed her wish to work with Shah Rukh, reports DNA.

The actress will soon feature in Woody Allen’s romcom, 'To Rome With Love'. The story is told in four separate vignettes: a worker who wakes up to find himself a celebrity, an architect who takes a trip back to the street he lived on as a student, a young couple on their honeymoon, and a funeral director who has a talent for singing in the shower.

Cruz informs that she already has the rights to a book on India and she plans to shoot it here. The book, is reportedly Javier Moro’s novel Pasion India, and relates the inspired version of the true story of a 17-year-old Spanish flamenco dancer Anita Delgado who scandalized people in the early 1900s when she agreed to marry and settle down with an Indian king, Maharaja Jagatjit Singh Bahadur.

Her comment definitely raises speculation about SRK being signed for the role of the king. Now the question is, will SRK give his nod and return the compliment?

Admittedly Cruz is a great fan of Indian cinema and has quite an appetite for the cuisine as well.

Her interest to work with Shah Rukh Khan has also raised the appetite for the movie lovers who would like to relish a perfect combination of Penelope Cruz and Shah Rukh Khan on-screen.
