Chennai Express – Blockbuster movie by Director Rohit Shetty

King of romance Shahrukh Khan is again in news and this time not for any controversy but for Chennai Express, his blockbuster hit movie in 2014.  Don’t get wrong idea by its title that it’s a remake of any south Indian movie, in fact it’s an original story which impressed Shahrukh Khan that he said a big yes to star in lead role when Rohit Shetty, director of Chennai Express, narrated him the script. Deepika Padukone is the female lead opposite Shahrukh Khan (SRK) in Chennai Express.

Rohit Shetty wanted to make Sanjeev Kumar starrer cult comedy movie Angoor’s remake with Shahrukh Khan but that could not turn in reality as Rohit was not ready with the script so he narrated Chennai Express’s script to SRK which he liked very much. SRK’s wife Gauri Khan is producing the film under their banner Red Chillies Entertainment.

Shahrukh Khan was the first finalized cast of the film. After this the hunt for leading lady begun. There were some names in rumors as leading lady of Chennai Express and the names are Kareena Kapoor, Asin Thottumkal and Deepika Padukone. These news by media made Rohit Shetty angry and finally after all speculations Deepika Padukone was cast as female lead.

What’s special about Chennai Express movie 2014?

Firstly it’s a first movie in which Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty are working together. It is very surprising for many of us who are aware of very strong bonding between Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty and this time Rohit did not cast him in the film. Well it’s not that now they both have any problem working with each other but as every director wants to work with all best actors of the industry and Rohit Shetty is not an exception.

Shahrukh is famous for his on screen romance power so Chennai Express will be full of romantic scenes and Rohit Shetty, who is known for high class action scenes and cars blasting, is the director so it will be an action packed movie as well. In resent time superstar Salman Khan is leading box office with his action movies so it will be fun to watch his arch rival Shahrukh Khan doing a typical Rohit Shetty film.

Second, Shahrukh Khan is working with his discovery Deepika Padukone for second time after Om Shanti Om so it will be fun to watch their on screen chemistry after a long time in Chennai Express. SRK has already flaunted his six-pack abs in earlier released Om Shanti Om and it is reported that now this superstar is having sweaty exercise sessions at gym for a hot bod. So it’s a good news for all Shahrukh fans that there are fare chances to see his muscular physique in his upcoming movie Chennai Express. In his last released film Jab Tak Hai Jaan, directed by Yash Chopra, SRK played an army guy but now he is ready for a Hindi movie in south style masala.

Third, the tag line of the film, “Ready Steady Po”. Well ‘Po’ is Tamil word which means ‘go’ in English. Isn’t it creative? well for us surely it is.
