Many stories about Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty's fight went viral when their movie Dilwale flopped at the box office. In a recent interview with Koma Nahta, Rohit Shetty revealed that he got scared of Shahrukh Khan and Kajol's chemistry and that is the reason why he changed the script, "I know what went wrong with Dilwale. My conviction went wrong. This is the only film I didn't make with my conviction. I got scared with Shahrukh and Kajol's chemistry.''
After this interview, many people thought that Rohit Shetty is blaming Shahrukh Khan for the failure of Dilwale. When Bollywood Life asked Rohit about the same, he said, ''Shahrukh is one of the finest producers and human beings I've worked with. I have never blamed Shahrukh and Kajol's pairing for Dilwale's non performance. I would never attribute it to that."
Rohit Shetty and Shahrukh Khan worked together for the first time in Chennai Express. The movie broke many records at the Indian box-office.
After working in Chennai Express, Rohit Shetty and Shahrukh Khan worked together again in Dilwale. The movie also starred Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.
The movie clashed with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's Bajirao Mastani at the box office. Unfortunately, it didn't perform as expected.
It is said that Rohit Shetty has told Shahrukh Khan to postpone the release of Dilwale because of the big box office clash with Bajirao Mastani but SRK was not ready for it.
SRK Blamed Rohit?
While others say that Shahrukh Khan blamed Rohit Shetty for the failure of Dilwale as he thought Rohit did not pay attention to the script of the movie.
Talking about Dilwale, Shahrukh Khan had said, "I don't think the film has done as well as it should have. I am personally disappointed with that."
Box Office Performance
Shahrukh Khan had added, ''To be honest, it has perhaps not done as well in India as I would like it to do. But overseas it has done very well in a lot of countries like Germany, Austria.''
The dashing actor had further added, ''It is quite thrilling that Indian films are reaching far and wide. There is a lot of business opportunities."
Dilwale was released ahead of the festive season on December 18, 2015. The romantic comedy had marked the return of SRK-Kajol pairing after a long time.
The movie Dilwale was Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Rohit Shetty Productions.
In his interview with Komal, Rohit also revealed that earlier Kajol had a very small role in Dilwale, "I had to cater to SRK Kajol fans. The original script was something else and I changed it. I wasn't asked to change it. If i'll give you the original script you'll fall on the floor laughing. It was a three hero film, a story about three brother. Kajol's character was very small and she had four to five scenes that too in flashback."
In one of his interviews, Shahrukh Khan too had praised Rohit Shetty and had told a daily, "Rohit Shetty is a brand himself. There are very few directors who are like that. I feel fortunate to work with him. Together, we are competitive.''
