SHAH RUKH, RO­HIT SHETTY FRIENDS NO MORE

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - FRONT PAGE - Sub­hash K Jha htc­ity@hin­dus­tan­times.com

One of show­biz’s most in­ter­est­ing and lu­cra­tive friend­ships has come to an end. After two films to­gether — Chen­nai Ex­press (2013) and Dil­wale (2015) — direc­tor Ro­hit Shetty and ac­tor Shah Rukh Khan have bro­ken part­ner­ship.

It was de­cided that Ro­hit and Shah Rukh would be do­ing a third film to­gether. In fact, Shetty’s next film was meant to be with SRK again. But now he’s do­ing another Gol­maal film with his best friend in the in­dus­try, ac­tor Ajay Devgn.

A source close to the de­vel­op­ment says, “The film that Shah Rukh and Ro­hit were sup­posed to do to­gether next is now shelved. They both hold each other re­spon­si­ble for the fail­ure of Dil­wale. Ro­hit feels Shah Rukh made a big mis­take re­leas­ing Dil­wale on the same Fri­day as San­jay Leela Bhansali’s Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani. Shah Rukh feels Ro­hit didn’t work hard enough on Dil­wale. The part­ing has not been am­i­ca­ble.”

How­ever, nei­ther Shah Rukh nor Shetty has spo­ken about their fall­out as yet.
