The ₹200 crore club team Rohit Shetty and Shah Rukh Khan will soon be seen working on their next project.
After giving a blockbuster film "Chennai Express," Shetty and Khan will reunite for a full-on entertainer film.
Shetty is currently working on the second installment of his blockbuster film "Singham" with Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor Khan. After finishing the shooting of "Singham Returns," the director will work with SRK.
During an interview with The Times of India, Shetty was asked about his next move after "Singham Returns" to which he replied, "A film with Shah Rukh. It will be a full-on entertainer."
"Chennai Express" was released last year in August and had featured SRK and Deepika Padukoene in the lead roles. The film went on to become a blockbuster hit and also entered into ₹200 crore club.
Following the success of "Chennai Express" there were reports that the director-actor jodi will make a sequel of the romantic comedy film.
Last year, he hinted at the possibility of making a sequel of the film. "I am making Singham 2. I might also make a sequel to Chennai Express. When Singham (2011) had released, I had said that I wouldn't make a sequel. Likewise, right now I can't say anything about Chennai Express. Once I get the right story...then maybe (I will make a sequel)," Shetty told Hindustan Times in December.
There were also reports that the film will be reportedly called "Punjab Express," but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Shetty, who hosted "Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi (season 5)," is shooting the final segment of "Singham Returns". The director is also working on his next film in "Golmaal" series.
But taking out dates from SRK will be bit difficult for the director, as the actor is already lined up with three films.
Khan is currently shooting Farah Khan's "Happy New Year." In November, he will start working on Rahul Dholakia's "Raees" which also stars Farhan Akhtar and will also start working on Maneesh Sharma's directorial film "Fan."
Not only working in same films, but the Shetty-Khan team is also reportedly planning to finance Marathi films. Shetty and Khan will produce six Marathi films under their joint banner.
"It is at the planning stage. It is too early to talk about it. There are a few friends who have narrated scripts and they want me to produce Marathi films. I am looking forward to it. What kind of a film it will be, I can't say now," Shetty told Press Trust of India.
