After leaving no stone unturned to promote his movie ‘Ra.One’, Shah Rukh Khan is taking a much needed break and spending time with his kids.
But the actor said that his vacation won’t last long as he would have to get in front of camera January next year to start shooting for the untitled movie to be directed by Yash Chopra.
“After a mammoth promotional exercise for RA.One, I needed the break to spend time with my kids at home and sleep in peace. But as the days go by, I’m reminded that I have to return to the studios soon,” he said to a daily.
“It’s not such a task if the director is someone like Yash Chopra. It’s a hardcore romantic movie. We should be on floors by the second or third week of January, hopefully. Yash ji had very casually told me, “Tu kuch dates January ki de de pehle, phir aage ka plan karte hain. (Give us a few dates in January first, then we’ll plan ahead),” he added.
Shah Rukh Khan has been paired opposite Katrina Kaif for the first time in this movie. The movie also features his ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ co-star Anushka Sharma.
The movie is scheduled for 2012 Diwali release.
When asked if it was a conscious decision to release the movie on Diwali, like his last movie ‘Ra.One’, he said, “I don’t sign a film thinking that it will release on Diwali and or on Christmas. If my film is worthy, it will have a superb box-office run, even if it doesn’t open during a festival. As filmmakers and actors, we target a festival because it’s also the holiday season and we can have more families entering cinema halls than on a usual weekend”.
“Diwali has never disappointed me,” he concluded.
