Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are Bollywood’s most loved on-screen pair and the superstar, who is teaming with the actress for Dilwale, hopes they can recreate their magic for the Rohit Shetty film.
“It is very exciting to be back with Kajol. I haven’t had the time to thank her for being a part of the film. We will hopefully start the film in June. It is good to work with Rohit,” says Shah Rukh. The 49-year-old actor and Kajol have starred together in Baazigar, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. The two were last seen together on-screen in Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan in 2010. “It is always exciting to work with her. She is my warmest, closest friend. We have done really nice cinema together. I hope we can recreate that for Dilwale as well,” he adds.
Shah Rukh has just wrapped up Maneesh Sharma’s Fan. The actor is playing a double role in the film; one of a superstar and the other of a fan. The actor, however, says that the story of Fan is more than just superstardom and being on the other side of it.
“Fan is a very different story. I am not sure how much I can divulge. I have finished it. It is very interesting. I think it has an amazing teaching. It shows us that somewhere down the line, to achieve what you have accomplished in life you need to find your own identity,” he says, adding, “I think that is the greatest message I can give through the film. It was very tiring but extremely satisfying.”
