Salman would be seen playing the role of a RAW agent in the Yash Raj film. The theatrical trailer has garnered a positive response.

The movie is directed by Kabir Khan and is slated to release in August.

On smoking habits of actors like Salman and Shah Rukh Khan, Vivek said, "I know that they acknowledge that smoking is bad habit. But it's an individual decision."
