Will Shah Rukh Khan skip Alia-Ranbir’s Brahmastra promotional events for this reason?
After a long wait, Brahmastra’s trailer was finally released earlier this month and it has already sparked fans’ interest. Everything seemed to have wowed audiences, from Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s chemistry to the visual effects and dialogue. Another thing fans were waiting for in the trailer was the glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan as the superstar is supposed to make an appearance in the movie. Although we couldn’t see it, the figure of a mysterious man resembled SRK. Now, it’s reported that despite his cameo, the actor won’t be present for promotional events.
If a report in Bollywood Hungama is anything to go by, SRK will be absent from the events and he has good reason for that. The publication cites a source as saying, “The creators of Brahmastra have planned a lot of promotional activities ahead of the release. They were toying with the idea of having Shah Rukh Khan attend an event organized to promote Brahmastra. He is one of the biggest stars today in India and also, he hasn’t made such an appearance for ages. As a result, they felt that if he could do it, then nothing like it.
The publication further quoted the source as saying, “Shah Rukh understood the intention of the makers. He also knows it’s a project they’re passionate about and has the utmost respect for how they’ve done everything to make the film look international. However, he doesn’t think it’s a good idea for him to attend Brahmastra promotions. He felt they had enough to do to excite the audience, be it the music, the grandeur, the presence of talented actors, etc. Moreover, he wants to stay away from media events and reflections for the time being. He would prefer to attend such movie events just for promotions of his comeback movie, Pathaan, which comes out on Republic Day 2023. SRK feels that this strategy would work best for Siddharth Anand’s director since he casts him as the main . ”
Director Ayan Mukerji and producer Karan Johar reportedly agreed with SRK’s point of view and decided to continue the events without him.
Meanwhile, besides Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan has two more films in the works next year. These include Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki and Atlee’s Jawan.
Speaking of Brahmastra, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy, in addition to Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. It will be released on September 9, 2022.
