Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express and Happy New Year are pretty much on track. Of late there were some speculations around possibility of change in plans, considering the choc-o-block schedule of the superstar. However, those associated with his films confirm that everything is as per plans and there are no delays whatsoever.
"Shah Rukh has been constantly shooting for Yashji's film. He has been travelling from Ladakh to Kashmir. However, that was always on the cards and there is no change in schedule. Even though he is still shooting for his Diwali release, it won't make any difference to either Chennai Express or Happy New Year", informs an insider.
Given the fact that just a couple of months remain for his yet untitled film and it is expected that at least an entire month would go into it's promotion, one did wonder if Chennai Express, his immediate next film to go on floors, would be impacted.
SRK and Rohit Shetty
"None whatsoever", says a source attached to the Rohit Shetty film, "The film was always meant to start in September end or October beginning. That's the way it stays."
Meanwhile Shah Rukh is also committed to Farah Khan's Happy New Year. Would Shah Rukh manage to start the film's shoot this year itself?
"Yes, we are definitely starting Happy New Year this year itself with a 5-6 days schedule in December. After the Christmas and New Year celebrations, we go full steam from January onwards", says Farah Khan.
Rohit Shetty too sent back a text stating that Chennai Express is all set to roll and would indeed begin on 27th September.
With all being well with his films, guess audience can well expect a Shah Rukh double bill in quick succession next year, just like it was with Ra. One
and Don 2
, which literally arrived back to back last year.
