Sohail Khan recently launched the trailer of Freaky Ali along with brothers Arbaaz Khan and Salman Khan. At the trailer launch, Sohail Khan revealed why he requested Salman Khan to be a part of the event.
He told a leading news agency, "We have been honest to the film. We have stayed true to the film while casting for it. I requested bhai (Salman) to be part of the film so that we can promote the film, so that it reaches more people and grabs more eyeballs. When we thought of this event (trailer launch) for Sunday, we were told press (media) will not come. It was like if Salman Khan will come press will also come.''
Sohail Khan also revealed, ''Salman had to go to Ladakh for the shooting of his next film Tubelight, directed by Kabir Khan. "Salman bhai cancelled his Ladakh trip for the trailer launch. Also, it's your (media) reach that will make the film popular as we have made all efforts.''
Talking about his film Freaky Ali, he said, "There is a perception about golf, tennis, that it's a rich man's sport. We are trying to break that in the film. In the film, we show that everyone who is talented should get a chance to show their talent. It's an inspirational story, from being a nobody to being an Indian champion. It's the story of rags to riches.''
