Chennai Express is apparently an out-and-out entertainer with Deepika sporting the look of a traditional south Indian girl. Going by the images, Shahrukh plays a charmer, but in this still from the film, the two are seen in a sulky mood and are visibly upset with each other while sitting apart on a bench at a railway station.
Video: SRK talks about ‘Chennai Express’
Many portions of Chennai Express have been filmed at Goa’s Vasco Railway Station where a particular platform was even given a makeover to look like Mumbai’s Kalyan station. The film’s Mumbai schedule began recently with shooting at Wai, near Satara in Maharashtra.
It is here that Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone also recreated the DDLJ moment where the hero extends his hand out to the heroine to help her board the train.
It was reported that Rohit Shetty also plans to make Shahrukh do some daring stunts for the action sequences in the film, however the superstar has denied it.
Jointly produced by UTV Motion Pictures and SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment, Chennai Express is slated to release in the second half of 2013, probably close to Eid.
