SRK and Kajol, who were last seen in 'My Name Is Khan' (2010), may be back together on screen again as Rohit Shetty is apparently keen to cast the actress as the lead heroine in his untitled next with Shah Rukh
After the success of 'Chennai Express' (2013), Rohit Shetty is again teaming up with Shah Rukh Khan for his yet-to-be-titled project that also stars Varun Dhawan in a parallel role. While the two actors are set to play brothers, rumour mills suggest that the filmmaker is trying hard to convince Kajol to accept the heroine's role.
Rohit Shetty and Kajol
Speculation has been rife about the actress' comeback film with several filmmakers apparently having approached her with their film scripts — Kajol was last seen in 'We Are Family' (2010). Says an industry insider, "Rohit wants Kajol to make her comeback with his film, which will go on the floors soon. He has had many rounds of discussion with the actress and is trying his best to rope her in the project."
She was supposed to make her comeback with a Ram Madhvani-directed film but due to creative differences, she opted out. Then there were reports that she would star in husband Ajay Devgn's home production which would mark her Bollywood comeback. But, that too didn't materialise. If Kajol accepts Rohit's offer, it will indeed be a casting coup as she was last seen with SRK in the 2010 film 'My Name is Khan'.
Rohit remained unavailable for comment.
