Shah Rukh Khan fans will see the actor belting out stunts that he has never done before, in his next film Chennai Express, directed by Rohit Shetty.

King Khan is currently shooting for the film in Wai, near Satara in Maharashtra, where the action-packed scenes are being canned. A source close to the film says, “Rohit’s films are popular for the action scenes. Whether they are comedies, like the Golmaal series, or they involve hand-to-hand combat, like Singham did, they have masala action, and Chennai Express will be no different. SRK will perform never-seen-before stunts in the film.”

So expect Shah Rukh Khan to be doing stunts similar to what Ajay Devgn did in Singham. “Out of the 15 days of shooting in Wai, a week has been kept aside just for the action scenes. This will be raw action where Shah Rukh Khan will take on five villains at one go. The scenes will have a dash of South Indian cinema,” reveals the source.
