Shah Rukh Khan raees

Every year, Shah Rukh Khan celebrates his birthday in the presence of media and his fans in his bungalow and everyone is seen pouring the actor with gifts and well-wishes. However, this year, the actor has a special return gift for them, on his birthday, which is on November 2.


While we already know that Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’, which clashes with Shah Rukh’s ‘Raees’ on January 26, 2017, will have its trailer released with ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Shivaay’, Shah Rukh has a different plan in mind. The actor will present the trailer of ‘Raees’ on his 51st birthday, at the event he hosts at home. Let us tell you that the trailer will be released without the presence of his Pakistani leading lady Mahira Khan.

A source confirms, “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’, which is out on Diwali.”

This is because Aamir always has some great marketing strategy in place. Adds the source, “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.”

Well, we are definitely excited for this amazing return gift the superstar has in store for us.
