Though they have worked together in blockbusters like Chennai Express and the latest release Dilwale, superstar Shah Rukh Khan says he won’t be starring in director Rohit Shetty’s next. The filmmaker is currently planning to start working on his next, remake of the iconic film Ram Lakhan.

“No. I don’t think I am cast in the film. I wish him (Rohit) all the best,” Shah Rukh told reporters at the red carpet of Stardust Awards in Mumbai. The 50-year-old Happy New Year actor said he was happy with the response of Dilwale even as the film faced protests from certain political parties. “I am very happy (with the response) I want the families to go and watch as there were 2-3 places where they couldn’t watch it. Hopefully, things will be better in 4-5 days and more people will come and watch the film.”

Dilwale, which also stars Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, is doing good at the box office. Shah Rukh believes the film has reached its target audience. “Popular films, blockbusters, in your face masala films... are beyond critical or artistic acclaim. Some critics have liked the film and some have disliked. These movies are made for a target audience and as long as they are liking it I am happy.”
