The king of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, has teamed with Rohit Shetty again for the action-comedy film Dilwale , which is tentatively slated to release on 18 December this year. The actor has wittily remarked that Shetty’s remarkably punctual attitude is something he found pathetic about him while the duo were working together.

“According to my time, I am always punctual but according to other people, I am not always punctual. As a director, Rohit Shetty is extremely punctual, it’s pathetic to work with him. He is always present at the film location five to ten minutes prior to the time given. Actually, most directors are more punctual than actors. But Rohit (in particular) is exceptionally punctual,” said Shah Rukh Khan.


Shetty and SRK had previously worked on the blockbuster Chennai Express. Comedy along with non realistic, anti- gravity action scenes are commonly found in Shetty’s films. However, Dilwale is awaited with different expectations, as it marks the reunion of iconic romantic screen couple Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol who were last seen together in Karan Johar’s film My Name is Khan . The film also stars Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.

“This is going to be our second last schedule of Dilwale . It is a long schedule and is still in process. Dhawan and Sanon are presently shooting for a song in Bulgaria. I will go there within five days. We have a 30 days shoot in and around Europe. After that we will return to Mumbai for the last schedule,” said actor Shah Rukh Khan at an event in Mumbai.

Remo D’Souza has choreographed one of the songs which has been produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
