The buzz was rife that Shah Rukh Khan is going to release the much awaited trailer of his next film Raees, which is slated to release on 26th of January 2017. However, it didn’t work out and SRK went on to simply celebrate his Birthday without going flat on the floor. Every year one can find him celebrating with the media at his luxurious bungalow Mannat and 2016 was not an exception.
His fans were expecting to see the trailer with great excitement but he seems to have changed the plan in the last moment. Even the makers of the movie – Farhan Akhta and Ritesh Sidhwani had announced about the release of the trailer, which was supposed to be at his Ali Bagh’s cottage but nothing really worked out in his regard. But things didn’t go as per the plan and SRK was seen having his birthday bash with the media, his close friends apart from having good time with his children and wife Gauri Khan.
So, what was the reason of the sudden change in the birthday plans is an important question to pose. SRK didn’t want to mix the trailer of Raees with any other event be it his own birthday or the previous film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil release time as it had the cameo of his own. Also, it was Kaabil’s trailer, which was released during the Diwali time, hence he kept his trailer aloof.
Also, the other reason is the constant agitation by the fanatic groups for his film due to the presence of Mahira Khan who happens to be a Pak based actress also led him to think twice about the same. Though it was said that the ban on Pak actors will not affect his movie since it had completed before the Uri attacks when things were normal yet he has a valid reason to secure on these grounds.
