Chennai Express released on Eid and smashed all records by reaching Rs 100 crore in a mere four days. The magic of Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty worked miraculously and as 2013 has been the year of sequels, it’s not a far-fetched thought if you put the name Chennai Express 2 on the list.
Of course, not in 2013 but maybe sometime ahead, it is possible. While there is no confirmation, Rohit Shetty is going to start shooting for Singham 2 in December. Shahrukh also revealed that the duo might just work together for another film next year.
“Some other film maybe, inshahAllah! Recently we (Rohit, Deepika Padukone and I) were driving back and we realised that we will not see each other as regularly after all this? And I told them I am feeling bad, as did Rohit and Deepika. So, Rohit asked if he should already start writing something, so that will give us something to look forward to. Even if it’s a year later, Rohit has said he will work on something,” said Shahrukh.
But SRK already has a long list of filmmakers waiting to sign him like Anurag Basu, Abhinav Kashyup, Farhan Akhtar etc. He says, “No its not a long list, they are doing a lot of other films. But they are friends. They are not waiting though, I like all of them and we need to work out things. More than films, it’s about four-five people sitting and chatting.

More than films, it’s about four-five people sitting and chatting.
My logic is very clear. Do the film when you are doing the film with me. And when we are happy doing it. Don’t do it for any other reason. Free ho, main free hoon, khush hain hum dono, let’s make a film in six months. I have always been like this. I have never been like ki chalo I can’t let this film go. So I even tell them that come with a space that if I can’t do the film then you will have to make it with someone else. If you have to do it with someone else do it already.”
