Shahrukh to enjoy ‘Raees’ with friends at Mannat on birthday

Shahrukh Khan will turn 51 on November 2 and along with the trailer release, he has also planned to watch ‘Raees’ with friends and celebrate his birthday at Mannat.

In Rahul Dholakia’s ‘Raees’, Shahrukh Khan will be seen in a grey role. The film trailer will be attached to Karan Johar’s Diwali release, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. It has become a trend to attach trailer with a big release and as per report Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’ will be attached to Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Shivaay’.

Shahrukh Khan’s trailer release of ‘Raees’ will be a grand affair. First, the superstar with interact with media at his residence, then release the trailer on social media, and finally at Mannat he will have friends bonding.

The source told the daily, "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 (also out on Diwali)."

"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, the source added."

Aamir has some big plans surrounding ‘Dangal’ promotions, which Shahrukh will try to avoid. "While the producers of Raees are worried about their release on January 26, their publicity and promotions are on track" the source has revealed to DNA.

‘Raees’ also stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the pivotal role. The film is slated to release on January 26, 2017.
