Salaam Venky’s release has been one of the most awaited film releases this year. The fact that the film stars Kajol and is directed by Revathy is reason enough to look forward to it. To add to the anticipation, the cast and crew have revealed the film’s first look, which is set to release next month.
The Revathy-directed Salaam Venky stars Kajol in the lead role and is an ode to life and the celebration of existence. The film releasing soon is expected to be an emotionally charged narrative.
The trailer of Salaam Venky showcases Kajol as a mother and caretaker to Vishal Jethwa’s Venkatesh aka Venky. While Venky’s health is deteriorating quickly, he is prepared to fight for every moment of happiness, just like his mother. The trailer is bittersweet, with moments of laughter and tears, as Kajol sets about trying to make her son’s life memorable. Aamir Khan also makes an appearance at the end of the promo.

Salaam Venky First Look
Kajol took to her Instagram to share the film’s first look. In the poster, she can be seen carrying a man around in a wheelchair. “Ek Badi Zindagi Ka Bada Celebration is about to begin,” she wrote, adding that the film will showcase the “incredible journey of Sujata and Venkatesh,” the titular characters of the story.
Actor-filmmaker Revathy has earlier garnered appreciation for directing films like the 2002 release Mitr and the 2004 release Phir Milenge.
Revathy, who had previously titled the film ‘The Last Hurrah,’ always had Kajol in her mind as her first choice for the role given the energy and resilience the actor brings on screen.
The film also stars Aahana Kumra, Vishal Jethwa, Rahul Bose and Rajeev Khandelwal among others. Vishal Jethwa, who earlier played an antagonist in Mardaani 2, is the second character seen in the first look sitting in the wheelchair. The trailer of the film will be out on November 14.
Kajol, who was last seen in the 2021 Netflix release Tribhanga, has an exciting lineup of projects ahead. She will next be seen in Disney+ Hotstar’s Hindi adaption of The Good Wife, a courtroom drama in which she will be playing an advocate.
Kajol’s spouse and actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn gave her and Salaam Venky’s team a positive shoutout on social media after the first look was unveiled. “Have heard super stuff on Salaam Venky. It’s going to be emotionally engaging and entertaining. Congratulations,” he wrote.
The film is produced by Shraddha Agrawal, Varsha Kukreja and Suuraj Singh under the production house, RTAKE and BLIVE Productions. The film will be released in the theatres on December 9, 2022.
