Our tarot card reader Shruti Chopra finds out if Shahrukh Khan-Deepika Padukone recreate the magic of Om Shanti Om Just like you, we too are curious to know if the next big release of the year – Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express starring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone – will manage to impress us. So we asked our tarot reader to peep into the future and tell us what the fate of this big budget flick will be. BollywoodLife (BL): Will Deepika and Shahrukh recreate the magic of Om Shanti Om with Chennai Express? Shruti Chopra (SC): Shahrukh and Deepika have very strong individual personalities, yet in Chennai Express you will not see these individuals – you will see their characters. Their characterisations will be fun, relatable and energetic. So, yes they will recreate the magic of Om Shanti Om, but what will be different is the ease with which they will act with each other. Their chemistry will be pleasing to watch. Cards Revealed: The Star, Two & Four of Wands BL: Will Chennai Express work at the box office?
SC: Chennai Express will have a good opening; it will pull in crowds of all kinds – from the single screen viewers to multiples audiences, and even those who are not necessarily fans of such films. A lot of this will be because of SRK and Deepika, but also because of the genre and style of film making. The energy and madness of CE will keep people interested. It will be foolish for audiences to look for logic and reasoning.

It’s a movie that will maintain what he has achieved, and take him a step further in his career.
