Scheduled to release on December 9, the ‘Salaam Venky’ movie is based on Shrikant Murthy’s book called The Last Hurrah. The film stars iconic actor Kajol, playing the role of a strong mother named Sujata. The ‘Dilwale’ actor is making her comeback in the theaters after a while.
Last year in October Salaam Venky was announced and this year in February the shooting process began. On November 14, Salaam Venky’s official trailer dropped and fans were pleased to see Kajol in a new look. Being dressed in a simple cotton Saree while sporting a small bindi on her forehead Kajol portrays the role of a strong Indian mother.
Zee Music Company on YouTube shared the trailer and it currently has 6M views. Fans also applaud the poster where Kajol is seen wearing a vibrant red Saree, pushing a wheelchair where her son is sitting with a bag of vegetables on his lap. Under the title of the film reads a popular dialogue ‘Zindagi Lambi Nahi Badi Honi Chahiye’ from the iconic movie Anand.
Kajol shared the release date on Twitter with a very motivating caption, “Be Alive ✨ Be Inspiring ✨Be VENKY!”

Directed by Revathi, this film features the story of a boy named Venkatesh who is suffering from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Actor Vishal Jethwa who previously did films like [email protected] Mall, Hindi Medium, and Golkeri, plays the role of Venky. Besides Vishal and Kajol, other actors starring in the film are Rahul Bose, Aahana Kumra, Rajeev Khandelwal, Prakash Raj, Priyamani, Riddhi Kumar, Anant Mahadevan, Aneet Padda, and legendary star Aamir Khan.
Talking about the film Kajol revealed that previously she refused to do it. “I refused the film for three days. I was like, ‘I am not doing this film, I don’t want to do a film in which anything happens to my children. I cannot handle that. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare, you wouldn’t even wish this on your enemy, it’s that kind of a situation.” she explained.
The trailer gives a hint of the fact that Salaam Venky is going to be a real tear-jerker. It seems that Venky’s character has a death wish but that is kept secret in the trailer. Although most of the video has a tone of melancholy in it, there are also scenes where Venky is seen living happy days. We see him playing chess, and football and at times he even makes sarcastic comments about his illness.
Fans are thrilled to see Kajol and Aamir share the screen again however nothing about Aamir’s character is disclosed yet.
