SRK had made a promise that he will make three films a year.
In 2016, Shah Rukh Khan fans will be treated to two releases. Previously, the actor has done just one film a year: Dilwale (2015) and Happy New Year (2014) and Chennai Express (2013). Last year, SRK promised his fans that he will act in at least three films a year. Well, he couldn’t manage it last year, even though he had planned that treat for his fans. Fan released in April and Dear Zindagi is scheduled to release on November 25, this year.
However, Raees which was to release on the same day as Salman Khan starrer Sultan, was pushed to next year — January 2017.
But the actor plans to keep his promise to his fans in the coming year. And he has zeroed in on the three films as well as the game plan for the same. He says, “I’ve already begun work on Imtiaz Ali’s next The Ring and we wrap by October. I start Aanand L Rai’s film in November.” That, along with Raees makes it three releases in 2017. This will be a record for SRK. No other actor except Akshay Kumar has three or more releases in a year.
Adds a source close to the actor, “Raees releases on Republic Day next year. The Ring is expected to have a mid-2017 release. The makers are planning to release it right after the IPL next year. As for Aanand’s film where he plays a dwarf, SRK and team are looking at two dates: Diwali and Christmas. However, in all probability, Rai’s film will release on Christmas, as Aamir Khan has not booked that date yet, making it three releases, as promised.”
