Shah Rukh Khan does a DDLJ again

For Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express, he shot a train sequence with Deepika in Goa that was reminiscent of the iconic scene
Rohit Shetty’s Goa obsession is apparent in all his films – be it the Golmaal series, Bol Bachchan or Singham. And it comes as no surprise that for his next Chennai Express, the filmmaker has decided on Goa as his locale of choice.
Interestingly, the scene that the crew has been busy shooting over the weekend involves lead actor Shah Rukh Khan helping his on-screen ladylove Deepika Padukone on to the train waiting at Vasco platform number 2. And according to eyewitnesses, it reminds one of a similar scene (albeit in a platform in London and later Punjab) in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.
And that’s not all. For Rohit’s film, the platform in Vasco junction has been transformed to Kalyan station. Earlier, Shah Rukh had shot at CST. The sequence shot a month back involved the lead actor starting off his Chennai Express journey with blessings from an old woman.
“Shah Rukh Khan has been shooting at the Vasco junction since Saturday,” said a source close to the film, adding, “Platform number 2 has been cordoned off and the shoot is taking place there. A train has also been hired. This is Deepika’s first outdoor shoot for the film.” However, when asked about the similarity of the scene to the iconic DDLJ sequence, the source claimed, “There is a resemblance, yes. But it’s not an attempt to recreate the scene. This happens to be an important part of the sequence of events.”
Incidentally, Deepika’s look in the film is strictly south Indian. “She is sporting a half saree and two long plaits. SRK on the other hand has a very casual wardrobe in the film,” said the source.
Apparently, from Vasco, the crew will now head towards the Dudhsagar waterfalls for the next schedule. When contacted, Rohit confirmed the story.
The film is a co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Red Chillies.
