The talks and gossips started a while back when Bollywood King Shah Rukh Khan lost the box-office battle to next-gen superstar Ranveer Singh when his 'Dilwale' tanked in front of 'Bajirao Mastani'. But after the debacle of 'Zero' it has become crystal clear. Shah Rukh Khan is in dire need to revive his career.

The actor needs a director who can handle Shah Rukh Khan, the brand and Shah Rukh Khan, the actor. So here are 5 directors the actor should work with to revamp his career -

Sriram Raghavan - Unlike Aamir and Salman, Shah Rukh tasted success when he essayed negative characters and played them to perfection. Maybe it's time for SRK to bring that dark shade and who better to direct him than Sriram Raghavan. Sriram's movie always has a dark element and a different quirk like we saw in his latest movie 'Andhadhun'. Shah Rukh and Sriram can recreate the magic as Shah Rukh had in 'Baazigar' which could work for him.

Zoya Akhtar - Time and again we have seen that sometime SRK's stardom seeps into his characters. The actor needs a filmmaker who can craft, write and execute such a strong character that no amount of super-stardom can overshadow it. And currently, filmmaker Zoya is the best in the business to pull off such a thing. SRK should definitely make a movie with Zoya.

Ali Abbas Zafar - With movies like 'Tiger Zinda Hai' and 'Sultan' director Ali Abbas Zafar has proved that he has what it takes to handle the "Khan" stardom. In both his films, he has portrayed Salman in a unique way which did wonders for the director as well as the actor. Maybe he can work with SRK and apply the same skill and give back the superstar his trademark box-office collections.

Shoojit Sircar - Like Zoya, Shoojit's characters speak louder than the stardom of the actor who plays them. Also, his movies hold a certain charm and texture than any other director and they are entertaining as well as commercially successful. Shah Rukh needs such a director who can give him a well-written character which is loved by the fans as they love the actor himself. Also, Shoojit has a unique way of portraying romance that the King of romance should definitely explore.

Karan Johar - When your back is against the wall, one should always take the classic way. Perhaps Shah Rukh should do a movie with longtime friend Karan Johar. The Shah Rukh-Karan Johar Jodi has never failed at the box-office as the director knows the best way to portray SRK and play on his strengths. If nothing, the collaboration only will pull the audiences to the theaters.
