After a long wait, the trailer of Brahmastra finally released earlier this month and has already grabbed the attention of the fans. Everything from Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s chemistry to VFX and dialogues was impressing the audience. Another thing fans were waiting for in the trailer was a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan as the superstar has a cameo in the film. Though we couldn’t catch a glimpse of him, the figure of a mysterious man resembled SRK. Now, it is being reported that despite his cameo, the actor will not be present for promotional events.
If a report in Bollywood Hungama is to be noted, Shah Rukh will be absent from these shows and he has a good reason for it. The publication quoted a source as saying, “The makers of Brahmastra have planned several promotional activities ahead of the release. They were toying with the idea of including Shah Rukh Khan in an event organized to promote Brahmastra. He is one of the biggest stars of India today and at the same time, he has not made such an appearance since ages. As a result, he felt that if he could make it, there was nothing like it. ,
The publication further quoted the source as saying, “Shah Rukh understood the intention of the makers. He also knows that this is an obsessive project for him and he has the highest regard for the way he has done everything to give the film an international look. However, he does not think it is a good idea for him to participate in the promotion of Brahmastra. He felt that he had enough to excite the audience, be it the music, the grandeur, the presence of talented actors, etc. Also, he wants to stay away from the glare of events and media for some time. He would prefer to appear in such film shows only to promote his comeback film Pathan, which will release on Republic Day 2023. SRK feels this strategy will work better for the Siddharth Anand-directorial as it stars him in the lead role. ,
Director Ayan Mukerji and producer Karan Johar reportedly agree with Shah Rukh and have decided to go ahead with the events without him.
Meanwhile, apart from Pathan, Shah Rukh Khan has two more films in the pipeline next year. These include Rajkumar Hirani’s Dinki and Atlee’s jawans.
Talking about Brahmastra, apart from Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. It will release on 9 September 2022.
