Mumbai, Jan 2 (): Director Rohit Shetty’s forthcoming action-romance movie Chennai Express’s first look was revealed on Tuesday night. Co-produced by Gauri Khan and Karim Morani, ‘Chennai Express’ is presented by UTV Motion Pictures and Red Chillies Entertainment. The movie stars Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.
As a gift to SRK fans, the makers have planned to release the first look on the New Year Day. The most interesting fact is the makers have made the New Year Day more special by releasing 3 brand new posters of the film rather than releasing just one poster. All the posters are released with the tagline, ‘Ready, Steady, Po!’ which is a Tamil alliteration to the usual ‘Ready Steady Go’ in English.
In the last and final poster, Shahrukh and Deepika are seen in typical south Indian attire: lungi and a vest, covered with a shirt. All the posters have certainly raised our curiosity.
Chennai Express is the film about a man’s journey from Mumbai to Rameshwaram and what happens along the way. The man travels all the way to Rameshwaram to fulfil his duties and on the way he meets his love. Deepika, who has been seen in several western outfits, will now be seen as a complete South Indian girl.
This movie marks the Bollywood debut of the South Indian actor Sathyaraj, who appears as father of Deepika Padukone in the movie. Shahrukh Khan and Deepika are pairing again on the silver screen after a very long time of almost six years. They both appeared together in ‘Om Shanti Om’ (2007).
Interestingly, this is the first time Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty are working together. Earlier, Rohit has done eight films with his close friend Ajay Devgn.
The makers have gone all out to promote the film, which according to Shetty, is “a hard-core commercial film with a romantic angle.”
