Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty’s friendship gone sour
Shahrukh Khan and filmmaker Rohit Shetty are no longer friends. Their friendship has gone kaput after the debacle of ‘Dilwale’. The duo teamed up for the second time for ‘Dilwale’’ after the super-duper success of ‘Chennai Express’ but ‘Dilwale’ suffered huge loss for ‘Bajirao Mastani’ which got released on the same day. Audience preferred Ranveer-Deepika pairing then Shahrukh-Kaol. Shahrukh and Rohit started blame game after the huge loss of the big budget film.
The duo was supposed to team up for the third film but they are now in no mood to work with each other. Rohit blamed Shahrukh for the debacle of ‘Dilwale’. Rohit feels King Khan’s decision to clash with ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was unwise while SRK feels that Rohit didn’t give his 100% to the project!
The duo had a major fall-out after ‘Dilwale’ disaster. They are no longer spotted together in social events. They hold each other responsible for ‘Dilwale’ failure.
Shahrukh Khan too, admitted in an interview that ‘Dilwale’
failed to leave up to the expectations.
He said, "I don't think the film has done as well as it should have. I am personally disappointed with that. To be honest, it has perhaps not done as well in India as I would like it to do. But overseas it has done very well in a lot of countries like Germany, Austria. It is quite thrilling that Indian films are reaching far and wide. There is a lot of business opportunities."
A source was quoted as saying, "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."
After their third film together shelved, Rohit Shetty announced his next project ‘Golmaal 4’ with Ajay Devgn while SRK will be seen in ‘Raees’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’.
