Box Office records are meant to be broken: SRK
Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan feels that box office records are meant to be broken.
"I don't do films to make records. Every film will make some record…It's stupid to think records will not be broken. Any good film will do well and it feels fantastic when such film does well. It's important to make better films. The film (Chennai Express) had finest commercial director…great actress Deepika…It feels heartening to see this kind of response," SRK said.
Shahrukh and Deepika-starrer 'Chennai Express', directed by Rohit Shetty and released in August, has earned Rs 220 crore at the box office.
"There are so many platforms to release a film today. It's natural there won't be a golden or a silver jubilee today. There's speed today in terms of theatrical release and enjoyment of a hit film is amazing," he said at an event.
With the trend of sequels, the actor ruled out any "concrete plan" to make any second instalment of 'Chennai Express'.
The film will be premiered on television tomorrow.
The actor said director Rohit Shetty and his co-star Deepika deserved awards for 'Chennai Express'.
"She (Deepika) looks beautiful. She is very hardworking and a good actress. She was amazing in 'Cocktail', 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani'. Deepika has done a good job. She made the film (Chennai Express) lovable and hit through her role as she represented south India," he said.
Shahrukh will be seen with Deepika in Farah Khan's 'Happy New Year' along side Abhishek Bachchan, Vivan Shah, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani.
"Farah has said dancing in this film will be difficult. We are working on this film and its great fun," he added.
Shahrukh also rubbished reports of his playing a Gujarati don in Farhan Akhtar's next film.
