Word has it that the duo will produce a total of six regional films under their joint banner. The director confirmed the news just before flying to South Africa to host the fifth season of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi'. He said, “Yes, we are looking at producing Marathi films, but it is too early to talk about it as we are still working on things. A few friends from the Marathi film industry have already narrated their scripts to me. I liked couple of them and I look forward to producing these ventures.”

A source says that the director has spoken to SRK about the same and that the latter has shown interest in funding these projects. However, Rohit refuses to say more about the same. When asked about his plans to make a sequel to 'Chennai Express', he said that there’s no script in place right now. “But I am going to work with Shah Rukh on another film after I wrap up work on 'Singham 2',” he said.
