Bigg Boss 10: Shah Rukh-Salman to reunite again to promote ‘Raees’
Superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan will reunite on the small screen again on the latter’s reality show ‘Bigg Boss 10’. King Khan will be promoting his upcoming film ‘Raees’ on the ongoing show.
Last October before the show went on air, there was a strong speculation that Shah Rukh will appear on the show to promote ‘Dear Zindagi’ with co-star Alia Bhatt. But to the disappointment of fans, Alia came solo.
‘Bigg Boss’ makers confirmed it in a statement which read, “Shah Rukh will once again make an appearance on the show to promote his upcoming movie ‘Raees’ and share the stage with his close friend Salman for Bigg Boss Weekend Ka Vaar episode. They will shoot together for the semi-finale episode of Bigg Boss on January 20, 2017 on the show's set in Lonavala. They both will be seen having a lot of fun over interesting tasks and games.”
The two actors re-united on screen for the first time on ‘Bigg Boss 9’, after their much publicised spat in 2008. It was a historical moment when the duo recreated a scene from the iconic film ‘Karan Arjun’ on the sets. The friends-turned-foe-turned-friends were a laugh riot on the show and enthralled their happy fans by playing some fun games. Shah was later joined by Kajol for the promotion of ‘Dilwale’.
This time, Shah Rukh will be promoting ‘Raees’ alone as Mahira Khan will not be a part of the film’s promotion in India.
Shah Rukh plays the titular role of Raees Alam, a Gujarat-based bootlegger, who is pursued by a police officer, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, to thwart his illegal trade. The crime drama directed by Rahul Dholakia, also has a special song by Sunny Leone.
‘Raees’ will hit screens on January 25.
