About Dilwale Movie:

Dilwale is inspired from 1958 musical comedy film Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi.

The film also marked the last film appearance of Vinod Khanna, before his death on 27 April 2017.

In January 2015, Rohit Shetty announced a project with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead which would be their second collaboration after the 2013 film Chennai Express. Shetty stated that he would start filming in March 2015.

Shetty paired actress Kajol with Khan, making it the seventh time they were cast opposite each other. He also signed actor Varun Dhawan who was reportedly playing Khan’s brother, while actress Kriti Sanon was signed opposite him and Kajol’s sister.

Principal photography began on 20 March 2015 with Dhawan in Goa. Khan and Kajol first joined the crew for filming in Bulgaria from June 2015.

Later that month, the first song from the film was shot in Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, in Bulgaria. The schedule there was wrapped up by late July.

In August 2015, a romantic song featuring the lead pair was shot in Iceland.

The entire team then left for Hyderabad in early September to shoot what was touted to be the final schedule of filming. However, the work in Hyderabad was completed by late October, and filming officially came to an end with a brief schedule in Goa, the same location where it was started.

In December, after the promotions had commenced, another song was shot in haste. It featured all four lead actors and had to be played simultaneously with the end credits.

Dilwale was released theatrically worldwide on 18 December 2015, one week prior to the Christmas period, to mixed positive reviews with praise directed towards action sequences, music, humor, cinematography, and cast performances.

It became the thirteenth highest-grossing Indian film overseas and earned over ₹376 crore (US$58.61 million) worldwide, becoming the 31st highest-grossing Indian film of all time.

At the 61st Filmfare Awards, Dilwale received 5 nominations, including Best Actor (Khan) and Best Actress (Kajol).

The satellite rights of the film were sold to Sony Pictures Networks as part of a deal worth ₹2.2 billion (US$34.29 million).
