Shah Rukh Khan is working with Yash Raj Films in an in-and-out romantic drama after a span of very long time. YRF and SRK’s pair has been a hit formula since Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge days, and this time they are prepared to recreate the same onscreen magic all over again. JTHJ is a much anticipated film as SRK will be seen playing the roles he is most appreciated and loved for. The film stars, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles opposite SRK.
Over the last few weeks, promotion wise, publicity wise, the films were seen competing neck to neck. The competition has just got nastier, when Salman Khan joined the Devgn Lobby. Salman’s long standing rivalry and coldness with SRK is not hidden from anyone, rather it has been made very obvious time and again.
Apparently, Ajay Devgn was considering to reschedule the release date of Son Of Sardaar to avoid any clashes whatsoever with SRK’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Ajay has always remained clean of controversies and bickering that is a part and parcel of Bollywood. However, this time, Ajay seems to be in no mood to relent or become passive. It is said that Salman Khan insisted that the release date should not be changed and has affirmed Devgn to be confident of his work and film.
Though Salman Khan is extremely busy working on the sequel of his hit film, Dabangg; he managed to exclusively take out time to shoot for Ajay’s Son of Sardaar. Salman is going to appear in a song in the film and has a short cameo as well. Salman’s screen presence, added with his massive fan following, is going to do great wonders for the film. Ajay has graciously reciprocated Salman’s gesture by allowing the lead lady of the film, Sonakshi Sinha to take sometime off from promotions and other final minute work for Son Of Sardaar, in order to shoot for Salman’s Dabangg 2. Salman had made a personal request to Ajay and he was more than happy to concede.
While insiders claim a great friendships brewing between Devgn and Khan, it might also result in them taking each others rivalries to the next level. Bollywood observers are certain of Ajay’s poise in maintaining relationships and are certain that he wouldn’t turn hostile at any point given the long standing close friendship between Devgn’s wife Kajol and SRK, who are still considered to be Bollywood’s golden on screen couple. His professional war with SRK will however continue till the verdict on both their films is out. It will quite interesting to watch these two stars fight it out in every way possible to create a greater hype for their respective films.
