The Baadshah of Bollywood is now all set for a Hollywood ride. But, with a desi twist.

According to the reports in DNA, Shah Rukh is planning the remake of international TV series, 'Breaking Bad' into a Hindi film.

Though Indian television still seems reluctant in accepting films with story lines having mafia and drugs, Khan feels 'Breaking Bad' has the perfect recipe to work as a film.

"I have asked some people who have said that they would get me the rights. I am at that age when it will be interesting to take up such a role," he said in an interview to Indian Express.

The 'Dilwale' star might play the lead role of Walter White in the movie.

According to TOI, SRK has not made any official announcement about the project yet.

The process to get the rights for the remake is underway.
