Kajol and Revathy’s Salaam Venky trailer has touched millions of hearts across the country

Kajol and Revathy’s Salaam Venky trailer has touched millions of hearts across the country. Kajol’s effervescent screen presence is all set to beguile the audience once again, and to add on to is Vishal Jethwa who will showcase his acting prowess after gaining much love and appreciation for Mardaani 2.

Salaam Venky stars Jethwa as Venkatesh, whose health is deteriorating. However, he is prepared to fight for every moment of happiness, much like his mother.

Talking about his preparation and what helped him to get into the skin of the character, the actor said, “Ever since I started my journey as an actor, I have understood that I am my director’s actor. I always try to figure on set what my director is expecting from me and I try to deliver it”.

He added, “To get into Venkatesh’s character, I saw several videos of DMD patients as it is a rare disease and not many are aware about it. I saw many videos to study how the patient behaves, how they talk, their body language, their entire day routine, until which age what body part supports them etc. So I tried to understand and get the information and give my best to perform the character realistically”.

Apart from Kajol and Vishal, the film also stars Rahul Bose, Rajeev Khandelwal, Prakash Raj, Kamal Sadanah, and Aahana Kumra in pivotal roles.

Presented by Connekkt Media and produced by Suuraj Sinngh, Shraddha Agrawal, and Varsha Kukreja under the banner BLIVE Productions and RTAKE Studios, Salaam Venky is directed by Revathy and is set to release in cinemas on December 9, 2022.
