Rohit Shetty scored a hat-trick at the box office with his hit comedy franchise, Golmaal.

And there were talks about the director working on its next instalment. But the latest we’ve come to know is that he wants to focus on a film that, in all probability, will star Chennai Express (2013) actor Shah Rukh Khan.

"After the release of

Singham Returns

in August, Rohit plans to take a small break. Then he will start work on the pre-production of his next film, which is most likely to feature Shah Rukh in the lead. The project will go on the floors next year. By that time, SRK would have also wrapped up a major part of Maneesh’s (Sharma) film. But Rohit and SRK are yet to sit down and work out the details," says an industry insider.
