Shah Rukh Khan to take train journey for RAEES!
RAEES is set to release in January 25 2017 that is just two days from now and the star is still on movie promotion spree. Shah Rukh will be promoting the movie in his hometown Delhi in an unusual manner.
He will be travelling from Mumbai to Delhi in train to promote RAEES.
Needless to say, Shah Rukh Khan and trains have an interesting connection with each other. Who can forget his first interesting train sequence in DDLJ (DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE) where 'Raj' gives his hand out to 'Simran' and helps her get on to the train. The moment goes down in the history of Indian cinema as one of the most romantic scenes ever.
SRK is known to take the roads less taken and he proved it by dancing on a moving train in the super hit song, 'Chaiyya Chaiyya' from DIL SE.
Even in KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI, we see a significant sequence shot where Kajol bids goodbye to SRK, while she is departing on a train. In MAIN HOON NAA, we see SRK's introductory scene on a platform, just coming out of a train. In the critically acclaimed SWADES too, we see Shah Rukh playing a commoner travelling in a crowded train.
But the audience was struck with nostalgia when SRK recreated the famous DDLJ train sequence by giving his hand out to Deepika Padukone, helping her board the train in CHENNAI EXPRESS.
Trains have been an integral part of Shah Rukh's cinematic journey. It is ironical that the first time he had visited Mumbai, he had taken a train from Delhi, and now life comes a full circle for him as he is set to take a train from Mumbai and head to his hometown Delhi for the promotions of his much awaited film RAEES.
SRK also posted about his excitement that he is travelling to Delhi from Mumbai on a micro blogging.
