Rohit Shetty started as an assistant director with Phool Aur Kaante and his debut film as an independent director was Ajay Devgn and Bipasha Basu starrer Zameen, which fell flat at the Box Office but then came in Golmaal and since there there has been no looking back with films like All The Best, Singham, Bol Bachchan and Chennai Express.
Rohit Shetty is a man with a midas touch who is currently busy rapping up Singham Returns with Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor.
“I don’t have a wish list of actors. I am happy working with Ajay and Shah Rukh only. But it all depends on the subject and if I feel there is a particular actor who will suit a film, then definitely I will work with that actor,” Rohit said.
“I pre-plan my films, like the next film that I will be doing with Shah Rukh we have already written it. When I was working on Chennai Express, Singham Returns was already written. I have the same team and we keep working,” he said.
Rohit clarified that his next film with Shah Rukh Khan is not a sequel to their blockbuster Chennai Express.
“My next film with Shah Rukh is not called Punjab Express. It is not a sequel to Chennai Express. It is a completely different story. We will start next year,” Rohit said, without divulging any further details.
There are reports that actress Katrina Kaif might be paired opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the film. To this, Rohit says, “Well now that’s news to me as well. Even I have heard about this.”
Rohit Shetty will also collaborate with filmmaker Karan Johar. “We are working on that also. And Salman Khan is not there in it. We are still writing it and all I can say is it is a big film,” he said.
Rohit Shetty recently had a successful stint as a host for adventure reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 and he might be part of the next season as well.
“I loved being part of the show. It was a great experience and I am happy it did well. The Channel wants me to do it the next season as well, I am keeping quiet. I might to do it,” Rohit said.
