From Aishwarya Rai to Kajol and even Katrina Kaif, ­several names have been doing the rounds about who would actor Shah Rukh Khan be seen romancing in Rohit Shetty’s ­upcoming directorial, and the ­filmmaker is loving all the speculations.
“Just the other day I was having a ­discussion with Shah Rukh and he said, ‘Rohit, let ­people speculate for one more month. After that, we will disclose the name.’ So I also thought, ‘Yes, why not, let’s keep people guessing’,” says Shetty.
We insist if he can at least give us a hint if it’s either of the three names doing the rounds. “Ummm... just wait for one more month,” says Shetty, who’s last with SRK, Chennai Express (2013), had set the box office on fire. He is also credited for rolling out ­blockbusters, including Singham (2011) and Singham Returns (2014), apart from the Golmaal series. Shetty says that while he’s waiting for the right script to start work on the next from that series, which has already seen three hits, he’s ­currently excited about being back on TV as a host of the sixth season of a stunt-based reality show. In the promos of the show, Shetty was seen hanging around with ­alligators and leopards. Isn’t he scared? “Well, action is in my DNA, and of course one has to be alert. I know when to run,” he says, laughing.
