If the latest buzz is true, then “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif will share screen space together again, in Rohit Shetty’s next directorial venture.
Apparently talks to sign Kaif as the leading lady are in progress. Shetty will announce details on his next venture once his new film “Singham Returns” hits the screen in August. The film will reportedly be produced by Khan himself.
Shetty had earlier confirmed, in an interview with The Times of India, that he would make a film with Khan after finishing “Singham Returns”.
“A film with Shah Rukh. It will be a full-on entertainer,” Shetty had said.
“Chennai Express”, Shetty and Khan’s last film together, was a blockbuster both in India and internationally. There were reports last year that the director-actor duo will make a sequel to the blockbuster hit.
However, it is not sure whether their next venture will be the sequel to “Chennai Express”, featuring Khan and Kaif in the lead.
SRK and Kaif had worked together in Yash Chopra’s last film “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”. SRK-Kaif jodi was much appreciated by the audiences and went on to become one of the hottest on-screen couples of 2012.
Kaif also praised her co-star and said he was a “gentleman”.
“I love to see SRK’s love for his movies. The best thing about him is that he cares about his co-star’s scenes as much as he cares for his,” she told The Times of India. “I appreciate SRK’s attentiveness. His behaviour makes you feel great and then I feel men can still be gentlemen.”
