Come November 2, Shah Rukh Khan will turn 51 and he’s got a special plan lined up for his big day.
The superstar has decided to unveil the trailer of his forthcoming film ‘Raees’ on his birthday.
Every year, SRK celebrates the day with the media at his bungalow in Bandra and this time, he will take the opportunity to present the trailer to them.
After that, he will launch the trailer on social media the same afternoon.
SRK’s sharp business acumen at work. The actor is aware that Aamir Khan will release the trailer of ‘Dangal’ a few days before Diwali.
On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan, whose ‘Kaabil’ is clashing with ‘Raees’ at the box-office on January 26 next year, will attach the movie’s trailer to this year’s films – ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Shivaay’.
SRK feels that it will be best for him if he launches his film’s trailer only after the hype around the trailers of ‘Dangal’ and ‘Kaabil’ has died out.
“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,” a source revealed.
Last year too, King Khan had presented the Fan teaser on his 50th birthday.
But will the ongoing issue of the ban on Pakistani artistes affect the release of Raees, which also stars Pakistani actor Mahira Khan in the lead role?
Raaes has faced issues in terms of its release date. The film was supposed to release with Salman Khan-starrer Sultan. However, the actor, whose Dilwale had faced the brunt of a clash with Bajirao Mastani, bowed out of the clash.
Sultan went on to become a blockbuster and record setter of 2016.
Now, Raees is scheduled for January 27, 2017 release along with Hrithik’s Kaabil.
Currently, Shah Rukh is shooting for The Ring along with Anushka Sharma. After the wrapup, the superstar will come back to India and start promoting his next – Dear Zindagi. – CINEWS
