Rohit Shetty who teamed up with Shah Rukh Khan for the first time with ‘Chennai Express’ says Shah Rukh Khan is now like family to him. Their first movie “Chennai Express’ was a blockbuster.
“No equations have changed for me after this film in the industry. It is just that I have made a great friend… a family member in Shah Rukh Khan,” Rohit said.
Rohit Shetty has found a new friend in Shah Rukh Khan and is often the talking point in tinsel-town, because he is also good friends with Ajay Devgn. Ajay Devgn has been featured in all of Rohit’s movies except for ‘Chennai Express’.
With “Singham 2′, the Rohit-Ajay combination will be for the 9th time with ‘Bol Bachchan’ being their last back in 2012.
After Singham 2, Rohit is most likely to shoot another film with Shah Rukh Khan, which would be a wholesome entertainer.
“We had a great time making ‘Chennai Express’, it was a learning experience working with Shah Rukh… it was a positive experience. We will do a film together. It will be that (masala entertainer) way only. We are just at planning stage at present, nothing is finalized. I can’t say anything more as I don’t know what the project will be like when it’s complete,” Rohit said.
While Rohit has made sequels to two of his most popular franchises ‘Golmaal’ and Singham’, he has no such plans for ‘Chennai Express’.
“At present there are no plans of sequel as the story is not like that. ‘Chennai Express’ doesn’t require it. But Shah Rukh Khan and I are definitely working together for a film,” he said.
The duo is also planning to produce Marathi films. “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,” Rohit said.
