Farah Khan’s last directorial venture ‘Tees Maar Khan’ was a huge fail at the BO. Reportedly, SRK was miffed with Farah Khan for not casting him. But soon things patched up between them. But soon there was a fallout between Farah Khan’s husband Shirish Kunder and SRK at a party hosted by Sanjay Dutt in Juhu, Mumbai. Apparently, SRK slapped Shirish as the latter was stalking SRK through out the party and things got ugly. But looks like nothing can tear apart SRK-Farah Khan friendship.
The trailer of the movie will release with SRK’s not-so-good-friend Ajay Devgn’s ‘Singham Returns‘ on 15th August 2014. The movie is slated to release on Oct 23, 2014 as a Diwali release.
