Chennai Express 2

With their Eid release Chennai Express making the fastest Rs100 crore, both Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty are naturally rejoicing. And as everyone knows about the B-Town’s love for sequels, seems this one may have one soon in the pipeline.

While there is no confirmation from Rohit, who starts shooting for Singham 2 in December, SRK shares that two are likely to come together for a film again next year. However, that may not be a sequel. “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.”

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. 

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.” 

And don’t worry. We will do some great film some other time, which we will be happy doing without any problem. And they all do that, they all have films in between.”    

When asked in what he looks for in films he signs, he says, “One thing I look forward too is the excitement of working with someone I have worked with before and have a rapport with. If I don’t get that excitement,  ki dost hai yaar... chalo maza aayega... Woh achhi film hi bataa hai. Ab Karan haiAdi hai acchi films banate hain, then I look for something different.

Like I told Karan, ‘My Name Is Khan was a very new film, it was just completely different from what we have done before’. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was exciting because Adi was deglamourising me. I am very lucky that I have directors who want to rediscover something new not only about me but themselves as well, through the films we do. Of course, we will be bound by how we think and what we know but our films will still have a similar style. But I don’t sit down and think about anybody else.”
