Shah Rukh Khan is expected to start shooting from August 20. The actor has allotted a 10-day window this month for the shoot, following which he will dive back into the shoot of his yet-untitled film with Aanand L Rai.

A source reveals, "The show will air on Sundays post Diwali in October. Each episode will have four to five speakers sharing their stories. It is likely to be shot at Yash Raj studios." To take King Khan's show a notch higher, sources say that former US President Barack Obama, who is slated to travel to India for a conclave, has also been approached to make an appearance. However, there has been no confirmation on that front.
