Rumors of a rift between Rohit Shetty and Shahrukh Khan has been doing the rounds and the director recently on being quizzed about the same gave his reaction.
Rohit Shetty is currently the success of his directorial Simmba which stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan and produced by Karan Johar.
The film is roaring at the box office just like the title and has managed to collect already a 200 crores at the box office.
However, a certain section of the media has been reporting of a tiff between Rohit Shetty and Shahrukh Khan.
Rohit and Shahrukh has given hit film Chennai Express which was a massive success and also Dilwale which unfortunately did not do well at the box office.
In his recent interview, the ace director talked about it and stated that there is nothing like that. He added that if this news was true then he would have never worked with SRK’s company in Simmba.
While talking to Zoom TV, he said, “Not really. No, actually you know what happens is on a technical basis people don’t realise, if you see the titles of Simmba, the colour, the DI (of the film) everything has happened at Red Chillies where Zero was also being worked, and that is Shah Rukh’s company.”
He further added, “So, agar aisa kuch hoga (his alleged fight with SRK) then why would I work there. There’s nothing like that. Nothing. It’s just that we’ve not done a film together toh abhi yeh ho gaya ki jhagda ho gaya hai. That happens.”
Rohit Shetty will be collaborating with Akshay Kumar for the first time for his next project, Suryanvanshi.
SRK, on the other hand, will soon start working on Rakesh Sharma biopic.
Post the success of Simmba, Sonu Sood posts an emotional message for his late parents
Sonu, who played the antagonist in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba, co-starring Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan, expressed his love for his parents by sharing an emotional note on social media on Friday.
Sonu captioned the post: “Miss you mom and dad” and wrote: “Today when I sit and attend congratulatory calls from so many people on the success of my new movie, there is one call I miss the most… A call from you both.”
Sonu, whose last film Simmba performed exceptionally well at the box office, and has collected over Rs. 212 crore within two weeks of its release, added, “Today everything feels incomplete without you. Wish I could sit in a theater with you and watch my film. The applause and whistles would have justified the time I had spent away from you during my struggling days.”
Sonu Sood, who lost his father Shakti Sood in February 2016 and his mother Saroj Sood in 2007, wrote about how he sometimes feels that he “failed as a son” and that he wishes that his parents were around to witness his success as an actor.
“In the initial years when I was trying to learn the craft, I remember your motivational calls and those inspiring letters, which I still have with me. Time flew too fast. Success came, but for whom I worked so hard for so many years, couldn’t enjoy it. Sometimes I feel like I failed as a son.”
In his post, the 45-year-old actor also talked about how he wished that he could have attained success in the initial stages of his career. “Sometimes I wish, I could have made this happen faster. I am sorry mom and dad. I miss you every day when I succeed. I miss you every day when I fail. I will still work hard to make you proud. Stay happy wherever you are and I know you are making things happen for me the way they are happening for me now,” wrote Sonu Sood.
Sonu Sood signed off the note saying, “Love you loads and miss you infinite. See you someday for sure. With mom and dad around, life would have been mind-ich-blowing.”
