VANCOUVER: Bollywood superstar, international icon – Shah Rukh Khan is a busy man lately. Not only do his acting and production commitments keep him occupied, but the recently kickstarted Indian Premier League (IPL) 6th Edition too has SRK super engaged. But he is managing it all pretty well.
One lesson, he says, he has learnt of late is to talk about his new projects only at the right time.
“We are making ‘Chennai Express’ and then there is another film called ‘A for Apple, B for Billi, C for Cutta’ (ABC). Two others are in the pipleline, but I would like to keep it a secret till the right time,” said Khan in an interview on the sidelines of the maiden edition of the Times Of India Film Awards (TOIFA) here
SRK says he picks his films instinctively, but he is especially happy with Rohit Shetty’s “Chennai Express” as he believes it is a comedy, action and entertainment-packed project “different” from the intense and serious films he has done in the recent past.
“I do films which I like at a given point of time and as and when I get the opportunity. So when Rohit narrated a couple of films to me two years back, one was the remake of ‘Angoor’ and other was ‘Chennai Express’. I like both of them. But Rohit felt he would like to do the latter one first as it is a bigger film and has fantastic comedy, action and amazing songs,” explains the actor.
The film, produced by the actor’s wife Gauri Khan under their production banner Red Chillies Entertainment, features Deepika Padukone opposite King Khan. Shah Rukh is, of course, happy with the way the movie is shaping up, revealing that he injured his right shoulder while shooting for the film.
“It’s awkward for me to speak of film that I produce, but I just have to say that Rohit has done me great favour while making a film like this for me. It’s fun and I am enjoying it. Yes, I end up doing very intense films like ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ , ‘Chak De! India’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’, and so, it (‘Chennai Express’) is a nice change for me. May be I would continue doing films like ‘Chennai Express’ in future,” he said.
