Sometime back rumors were rifle that the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan's much awaited gangster flick 'Raees' will be attached to Karan Johar's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' and Ajay Devgn's 'Shivaay'.
But now we hear that SRK has a different strategy in his mind. Reportedly the actor will now present the trailer on his birthday (2nd November) at the event he hosts every year at his house in Bandra. Hence, Kaabil will be attached to both Shivaay and ADHM.
A DNA report quoted a source saying, “SRK and co-producer Ritesh Sidhwani do not want any comparisons made with any other film. So, they will release their trailer a few days after Kaabil. But the bigger worry for SRK isn’t Kaabil as much as it is the trailer of Aamir Khan’s Dangal (also out on Diwali)."
The source further added, “Not just that, Aamir will also release the trailer a few days before Diwali, so there is double the buzz. Shah Rukh wants the hype around those two trailers to end before he releases his film’s trailer the week after. He will screen the trailer for the media in the day, release it on social media after that and at night, his close friends will get to watch it at his birthday bash at his residence, Mannat.”
Unfortunately SRK's leading lady Mahira Khan will not be present for the event due to the recent ban on Pakistani actors. The ban, however, will not affect the movie as films that are completed will escape the restriction. The source said, “While the producers of Raees are worried about their release on January 26, their publicity and promotions are on track.”
Looks like it's going to be a double treat for all SRK fans!
