Well It’s a growing trend in South Indian film industry to release the trailer or the first look of a movie on the birthday of the star associated with that movie.
Acc to the latest reports , Shah Rukh Khan (King Khan) is all set to bring this trend in Bollywood.
After FAN , Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (Cameo) , Dear Zindagi (Short Role) and in his most awaited action thriller movie “Raees” , directed by Rahul Dholakia , Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani , Gauri Khan and Farhan Akhtar of Excel Entertainment.
First “Raees” was scheduled to release this Eid 2016 , but some how it’s release date was shifted to 26 January , but now some reports claimed that the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan’s action thriller “Raees” may be released on SRK’s 51st birthday which falls on 2nd November .
Shah Rukh Khan and producer Ritesh Sidhwani do not want any comparisons made with any other film , so they will release their trailer after few days of the trailer launch of Hritik Roshan’s Kaabil . Also the trailer of Aamir Khan’s Dangal will be out on Diwali , along with Kaabil it will be attached with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay.
Earlier it was rumoured that , the trailer of “Raees” will be attached with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay, but this isn’t happening . King Khan invites media on his birthday and maybe the plan is to release the much awaited Raees trailer in the same press meet on King Khan’s Birthday .
Some sources said , King Khan will screen the trailer for the media in the day and will release it on social media after that and at night, SRK’s close friends will get to watch it at his birthday bash at his residence, Mannat.”
If Raees Trailer is released on SRK’S 51st Birthday , then it will be surely attached with Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi .
However we could not independently verify the report.
Few days back some unverified reports told that Shah Rukh Khan , along with the makers of Raees , is considering shifting the release date of his film. The shift is likely to happen in because of the box office clash with Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer Kaabil and the demands of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) regarding Pakistani actor Mahira Khan who stars opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the film. SRK’s film is introducing Mahira. After the MNS asked all Pakistani actors to return to their country in the wake of the (September 18) Uri terror attacks, the makers are now worried this development can severely affect the business of the film.
Shah Rukh Khan’s “Raees” is scheduled to Release on 26 January , 2017.
