After a long time, Bollywood fans are finally going to see Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan on the same big screen - not in the same film though! The audience for Salman's upcoming movie Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will be treated to the first trailer of SRK's next film, Dilwale.
Red Chillies Entertainment (SRK's production company) recently confirmed the news that the trailer for Dilwale will be attached to Salman's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo that is releasing on 12 November. "RCE would like to sincerely thank Mr. Salman Khan and Rajshri Productions for this wonderful gesture," said Gaurav Verma - chief revenue officer, Red Chillies Entertainment - in a statement.
This move further strengthens the trend of a healthy competition between the two Bollywood stars who have, of late, been lending immense support to each other's films. SRK unveiled the first look of Bajrangi Bhaijaan via his Twitter account and Salman returned the gesture by stating that fans can expect a 'double dhamaal' with his Sultan and Shah Rukh's Raees releasing on Eid in 2016.
Dilwale trailer online release update
When asked if the trailer will also release online on the same day for viewers worldwide, a Red Chillies Entertainment spokesperson told IB Times UK that details around that will be revealed "very soon."
In 2014, Team SRK came up with a unique and innovative idea to reveal the first trailer of his film, Happy New Year – by releasing it first on the popular mobile networking application WhatsApp. It remains to be seen what the marketing team comes up with this year.
Dilwale is being directed by Rohit Shetty (of Chennai Express fame) and will bring back the successful on-screen pairing of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge) to the big screen. The film is slated to release on 18 December 2015. The last schedule of the film is currently being shot in Hyderabad.
