While Shamshera is helmed by Karan Malhotra, Raksha Bandhan was directed by Aanand L Rai.
Bollywood fans seem to have a lot to look forward to next week. It was reported that the makers of some highly awaited releases, including Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan are eyeing to release the films’ trailers next week. The unveiling of the trailers would reportedly coincide with the release of the Raj Mehta directorial, JugJugg Jeeyo.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, the makers of Raksha Bandhan were planning a long campaign for the Akshay Kumar starrer, especially since they had a lot of faith in the film’s music composed by Himesh Reshammiya. The film’s trailer would reportedly be screened in theatres with JugJugg Jeeyo, which is slated for release on June 24.
Additionally the makers of Shamshera, which marks Ranbir Kapoor’s first film in almost 4 years, are also planning on unveiling the film’s trailer around June 24 as well. YRF, who are bankrolling Shamshera, have reportedly tried up with multiplexes to showcase the film’s trailer in cinemas.
Raksha Bandhan reunites Akshay with his Atrangi Re director Aanand L Rai. The upcoming film, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar, is slated for release on August 11 this year.
Ranbir’s first look from Shamshera had been leaked online recently, in an incident that YRF described as ‘unfortunate’. In addition to Ranbir, Shamshera also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor in pivotal roles. The film is scheduled for release on July 22.
JugJugg Jeeyo stars Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Neetu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Manish Paul and Prajakta Koli in prominent roles. Interestingly, the film, directed by Raj Mehta, also marks Ranbir’s mother Neetu’s return to the big screen as well, after more than a decade. The film was bankrolled under the banner of Dharma Productions.
