Salman Khan has bluntly refused to have the first theatrical trailer of movie ‘Don 2’ featuring Shah Rukh Khan during his ‘Bodyguard’ movie.
Reliance that is producing both Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Don 2’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’ had planned to release the first trailer along with ‘Bodyguard’ movie on Eid. When Reliance insisted that the both movies were theirs, Salman Khan said ‘Bodyguard is my movie too’.
"Salman and SRK are not friends. It was obvious that Salman will not want the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan's film attached to Bodyguard. Salman would have said 'No' even if he had a guest appearance in the film. His war with SRK is far from over," said a source to TOI.
The production house had no other option but to back off their plans. Instead of ‘Don 2’ trailer now they are planning on showing ‘Agneepath’ trailer in the movie. Infact it was Salman Khan who insisted on having Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’ movie trailer that features Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt.
"It would have made more sense for Reliance to include the promo of Don 2, since it releases this December as opposed to Agneepath that releases in 2012. But since Salman wanted it, the producers couldn't refuse," said the source.
Explaining why Salman Khan was ok with having Shah Rukh Khan’s best friend Karan Johar’s movie trailer in the movie, the source said, “Salman has been bonding with Karan Johar of late. According to industry insiders, the actor will work in the Dharma Productions venture to be directed by Rensil D'Silva. Also, Agneepath stars Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt, two actors who had once had a spat with Salman but are now close to him.”
The movie Bodyguard will release on Eid with ‘Agneepath’ and ‘Love U Soniyo’ trailers.
"There is neither a trailer nor a promo of Don 2 in Bodyguard. Salman did not want any mention of the SRK starrer in his film," concluded the source.
