The much-delayed film sees Khan perform dual roles as a major star and as a lookalike.
Principal photography began in May 2014, and the film was initially scheduled to release this year. It was postponed to August 2015, ostensibly due to knee injuries Khan sustained during the filming of “Happy New Year.” Complex visual effects were blamed for a further delay to early 2016.
The film is directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced and distributed by Yash Raj Films. Oscar winner Greg Cannom was responsible for the prosthetic make-up effects.
Khan is also set to appear in Rohit Shetty’s “Dilwale,” which is currently shooting and has an unconfirmed 2015 release date.
