KARACHI: As Bollywood fans the world over await the release of Dilwale with bated breath, the film’s makers have revealed a little something for them to revel in. According to a press release, director Rohit Shetty and team recently unveiled the trailer of the film, with the film’s entire cast present to rejoice over the occasion. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, who have long been lauded for their onscreen chemistry, especially in the blockbuster Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, will once again star opposite each other in a film that promises to be a family entertainer.
SRK considers Dilwale a “wonderful filmmaking experience” and hopes the team’s efforts will bear fruit. “I’ve never enjoyed myself this much while shooting for a film. Right from reuniting with Kajol after a long gap to shooting heavy-duty action sequences, it was all a delight,” he said. Kajol feels the film is extremely special, not just for what it offers but also because of the people she has worked with. “I had a great time working on the film, especially with Shah Rukh and, of course, Rohit. I think everybody will have a great time watching it, just as we had a great time making it,” she shared.
