While it is known that filmmaker Rohit Shetty wanted to remake ANGOOR with Shah Rukh Khan, not many know that the eventual film that he directed with the super star, CHENNAI EXPRESS, was not meant for him.
Reliving the interesting happenings behind the above developments (while talking to a senior journalist of the vernacular press) Shetty says, ''After the ANGOOR remake plan fell through, I just happened to relate the story of CHENNAI EXPRESS to Shah Rukh Khan, thinking that it would be my last meeting with him. Interestingly, SRK liked what he heard, and the rest as they say is history. Yes, I must add that once Shah Rukh Khan had given the nod, my team went ahead and made some small changes in the script keeping SRK in mind,'' concludes Rohit.
The much awaited CHENNAI EXPRESS is all set to hit the screens in India and Overseas this Eid.
