“Salman’s relationship with YRF is great, but he felt releasing the trailer with SOS was a better idea. One of the reasons, we believe, is also Shah Rukh Khan, who stars in JTHJ. Everyone knows that the two aren’t on good terms anymore,” says a source from the film’s unit, adding, “Besides, Salman and Sanjay are really close. That’s one of the main reasons why he chose SOS. His cameo adds to the excitement.”
We tried contacting the representatives at Viacom 18 and Salman’s brother Arbaaz, but they were unavailable for comment.
