The team of Dilwale – including Rohit Shetty, Kajol, Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon – hosted a special press junket in Hyderabad over the weekend, where they are currently wrapping up the shooting of the film. They invited the media to have a look at their sets, interact with the star cast and – incredibly – watch quite a bit of footage from the film. And while the footage was still rough cuts, we liked what we saw. So if you’re looking forward to Dilwale this December, here’s a few things YOU can expect from this biggie:
This was what I was most excited about when Dilwale was announced, and it seems like we won’t be disappointed. We were shown one of the songs from the film that is picturized in Iceland, and it’s pretty much an homage to their romance. In fact, you’ll even think that it reminds you of another iconic SRK and Kajol song.
Rohit Shetty is in his element with this film, so if you’re a fan of his cinema, you shouldn’t be disappointed with Dilwale. There are some high-octane action sequences, amazing car chases and, of course, the blowing up of vehicles.
Having said that, while Dilwale is a typical Rohit Shetty film, it seems to be taken a notch higher. The vfx is amazing, and – this time around – Rohit Shetty is blowing up BMWs instead of Scorpios.
Yes, there’s a height difference between the two (Kriti is TALL!), but we like that it’s almost celebrated rather than hidden. They look great together, too, and a track featuring both of them is probably going to be one of your favourites on the soundtrack.
You loved him as Choocha in Fukrey, and he’s back with Dilwale. His scenes with Varun Dhawan are a lot of fun, and I’m going to venture a guess and say that you’re going to love their bromance.
I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE JOHNNY LEVER! Yeah, that deserved caps lock. There’s no one quite like him, and while we didn’t see too much footage featuring him, we hear his scenes were absolutely hilarious. In fact, Kajol said that they kept cracking up while shooting for this film because of Johnny Lever’s comic timing. And the fact that Sanjay Mishra is also in this film is just icing on the cake.
The aforementioned SRK-Kajol song set in Iceland is particularly gorgeous, but in general, the film features some beautiful looking locations. It’s going to be a treat for the eyes, that’s for sure.
We’re even more excited for Dilwale now, and we hope you are too! What are your expectations from the film?
