"Ajay will be there for a special appearance in Dilwale," a source told DNA.

"Rohit and Ajay are very close and it is Kajol's big comeback film. So it did not need too much of cajoling to get Ajay on board", explained the source.

"Dilwale" is Rohit's second venture with Shah Rukh after "Chennai Express". The film is a wholesome family entertainer and also features Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in lead roles.

Rohit confirmed the casts, shooting date and other details of the film on Saturday.
