Recently, names of Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were being rumoured for the female lead in the film Chennai Express. But Rohit Shetty has denied the reports. Talking to PTI, he said, "It is too early...we have not yet decided. We are waiting for 'Bol Bachchan' to release. So till July end we will not finalise. After that we will take up a call on that.”
Chennai Express is a romantic film with Shahrukh in the lead. It is slated to be a total commercial film in 'Rohit style'. It is the story about a man who travels from Mumbai to Rameshwaram and what all happens during the journey.
Meanwhile, Shetty's Bol Bachchan, starring Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Prachi Desai, is set to release on July 6. It is inspired by the 1979 comic flick Golmaal. On similarities between Golmaal and Bol Bachchan, Shetty said, "You will have to wait and see the film and tell me."
