Reuniting after five years, Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are back to entertain with Rohit Shetty’s comedy caper Chennai Express. And the teaser looks, no prizes for wild-guessing, very Rohit Shetty.
Shah Rukh Khan in an action avatar in Chennai Express
Shah Rukh Khan admits right at the outset that he is 40! Okay, that is still 7 moons too short of the real number. But it’s a start. Deepika Padukone’s accent is not too far off the mark but towards the end falters a tad.
Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Sathyaraj, Manorama, Nikitin Dheer and Rani Mukherji feature in Chennai Express. Priyamani too features in an item song in the film.
Produced by Gauri Khan under Red Chillies Entertainment banner, Chennai Express is slated for theatrical release on August 8. Do you like the teaser? VOTE NOW

Director Rohit Shetty’s first brush with fame was his 2006 hit Golmaal. He went on to make two sequels, Golmaal Returns (2008) and Golmaal 3 (2010), and is keen on a fourth film in the series. However, he hasn’t been able to find a powerful script for it. Writer duo Sajid-Farhad admit that Rohit has been in constant touch with them to finalise a script, and has even rejected a few options.
“Golmaal 3 is our favourite film, so to be bigger and better than that, we need a great story. We’ve discussed several scripts for Golmaal 4, but nothing has worked out yet. We’ve rejected a few as they didn’t excite us,” says Sajid.
In the meantime, Rohit, as well as Sajid-Farhad, are keeping themselves busy with other projects. Sajid says, “Rohit is presently focussing on Chennai Express with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. After that, he will start working on Singham 2. I don’t think Golmaal 4 will happen before that.” FULL STORYGlad to have Shah Rukh Khan in Chennai Express: Deepika Padukone
