One of the most exciting pairs in Indian cinema is Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan. The dynamic duo has been sizzling the big screen since the 90s and even today they are in high demand. The last time Khan and Kajol were together for ‘My Name is Khan’, the film turned out to be a blockbuster. Prior to this, they rocked the screen in box-office hits including ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, ‘Diwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, Baazigar’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and ‘Karan Arjun’. These two superstars will soon swoon each other in the Christmas release ‘Dilwale’ this year and like their previous cinematic outings, this is sure to be a major hit.
‘Dilwale’ is directed by Rohit Shetty who worked with Khan in the blockbuster ‘Chennai Express’ opposite Deepika Padukone. The plot is yet unknown but according to Pinkvilla, the team is scouting locations in beautiful Goa. Co-stars Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan have filmed certain scenes while Khan and Kajol will start in June. According to IMDb, veteran actors Kabir Bedi and Vinod Khanna are also set to make appearances in the hotly-anticipated film.
It has been eight years since we last saw Kajol and SRK in a Bollywood film, so it will be a delight to see them together but it is likely the spotlight will be shared with the younger stars Sanon and Dhawan. Dhawan made his big Bollywood debut in Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’ and was recently seen in this year’s ‘Badlapur’. He also was the assistant director in Johar’s ‘My Name is Khan’. Sanon is an aspiring actress whose first and only Hindi language film appearance was ‘Heropanti’. This is the second time ‘Dilwale’ is used as a title for a Bollywood film. Ajay Devgan, Sunil Shetty and Raveena Tandon starred in a romantic action drama by the same name in 1994.
It will be a great mix of youth and experience and with Shetty in the director’s chair it should be a blast from start to finish. ‘Dilwale’ releases in theaters on 25th December 2015.
