MUMBAI: Blockbuster filmmaker Rohit Shetty is buried neck-deep working on the script for his next film Dilwale that is set to start filming on March 20 in Mumbai. Dilwale will see the evergreen couple Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol recreating their on-screen magic once again, The Times of India reported.
Rohit confirmed, “The film has Shahrukh Khan with Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Vinod Khanna, Kabir Bedi, Johny Lever and Varun Sharma. It is being made by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Rohit Shetty Productions. It is not a remake of any film and will release this Christmas.”
His last two films Chennai Express with King Khan and Singham Returns with Ajay Devgn brought in envious box-office numbers.
Speaking of how with great success, comes even greater responsibility, Rohit added, “Frankly, I never take my audience for granted. So, each time I launch a film, I work doubly hard and for eight months, there has been too much speculation about Dilwale. Shahrukh sir asked me to announce my star cast and start shooting without much ado. So now, please let me make my film the way I know best.”
The movie will start rolling by the end of March and SRK-Kajol will be joining the team in June.
