Shah Rukh Khan wants break post 'Happy New Year'
Shah Rukh Khan feels he desperately needs a break despite having loads of film offers in hand
Shah Rukh, who is currently shooting 'Happy New Year', is flooded with film offers from directors like Maneesh Sharma of 'Shuddh Desi Romance' fame, Rahul Dholakia, Anurag Kashyap, R Balki, Ashutosh Gowarikar and others.
"Not yet (doing Maneesh Sharma's film), when I do the film I will let you all know. I haven't started anything new. I am going to work on 'Happy New Year' for the next two months. There are two-four film offers... Whenever the film gets designed, I will decide accordingly," Shah Rukh said.
"I will take holiday after I finish 'Happy New Year', as last time I did not take it (holiday) after completing 'Chennai Express', I jumped on my next film. I will take a month's off and then start a new film. There is Maneesh Sharma's film on top, Rahul Dholakia's movie and few other offers on which I will take a call," he added.
Incidentally, a channel has reportedly coughed up Rs 50 crore for acquiring satellite rights of the highest revenue grosser of the year 'Chennai Express', which brought the channel a good rating. "There was a lot of responsibility. They took the film at a high price, and not at what the rumours say. It was an expensive film. We don't understand how it performs on TV but the team of the channel said they were happy and may be because of the film they are number one now," Shah Rukh said.
The 48-year-old actor further said that "Money has never been the criteria. 'Chennai Express' is over now, new films will come, records will be broken." The actor also said it is not necessary that a film doing well at box office also fares well on TV. "There are few films which do good on TV as well as theatres. Our director Rohit Shetty has a good track record on TV," he said.
