Monday began with the release of Kajol and Revathy's Salaam Venky trailer. The film showcases the story of a doting mother (played by Kajol) and her son named Venky (played by Vishal Jethwa) as they navigate through every challenge that life and circumstances throw their way. The trailer is replete with emotional moments. Another highlights of the trailer certainly has to be a cameo appearance by superstar Aamir Khan, who appears at the end of the video and just looks deeply into the camera, sans a word being spoken. Fans couldn't keep calm after the trailer's release and the many tweets reflect the jovial mood of Aamir Khan fans.
Salaam Venky marks Aamir Khan and Kajol's third film together. They featured together in the 2006 release Fanaa. They also co-starred in the 1997 film Ishq.
