Film critic and analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to reveal the trailer release date of National Award Winning director Nitin Kakkar’s next.
Titled Notebook, the trailer of the film, which is produced by Salman Khan and introduces Pranutan Bahl and Zaheer Iqbal as lead actors, will release on 22 February 2019.
Notebook has been in news for some time, not just over the expectations from the award-winning directors’ foray into the mainstream love-story genre, but also for its shooting location –Kashmir.
Most recently, the film was in the news for replacing a song by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam following the Pulwama terror attack. The song will now be sung by Salman Khan.
The news of the replacement came after a blanket ban on Pakistani artistes was imposed by All India Cine Workers’ Association.
According to a Pinkvilla report, Salman Khan Films and Cine1 Studios, the producers associated with the film, decided to contribute Rs 22 lakh for the families of martyrs of the terror attack.
In a statement, the makers said, “Our entire crew could shoot safely in the Valley primarily due to the efforts of the Indian Army, the CRPF and also the people of Kashmir, who have constantly ensured that law and order prevail in the region even under the most extreme circumstances. We offer our prayers for the victims and extend our heartfelt condolences to their families.”
Reports also claim that Salman’s next film, Bharat, will also not have any song by Pakistani singers.
