Few months ago, it was revealed that after Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale, Shah Rukh Khan will have another box office clash in 2016. However, this clash wasn’t with Sanjay Leela Bhansali or Ranveer Singh, but with the biggest entertainer Bollywood has ever seen.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees Will Clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan
This has been quite a scoop especially on the social media that Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is all set to clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan at the box office this Eid. No sooner the news broke the Internet that, ‘Sultan and Raees will be releasing the same day’, than the die-hard fans of both the actors went after each other.
Now that both the actors are superstars of Bollywood, both Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan were quizzed, whether or not they would avoid the clash. Both the actors neither mentioned any plans to shift the release date nor looked interested in finding a way to avoid the clash.
Shah Rukh Khan Finally Opens Up about the Raees – Sultan Clash at the Box
When the team of BollywoodLife, quizzed the King Khan about the clash he said,
“Yeah, I guess we (Raees) could shift. But I don’t know the readiness of Sultan. Raees will be ready in January, in like 20 days. Plus, they all are friends – Adi (Aditya Chopra), Salman (Khan), Ali (Abbas Zafar), I know them all. So, if mutually we all can figure out a date where one of us goes a week up or down, we might! Or we might not! Again I feel both the film are different genres and so they might not be too difficult to handle on a good weekend like the December 25, Diwali or Eid – they are good weekends. They are good cinema tickets, so you can put in two films, of course the business gets divided, but it kind of comes back to normalcy.”
Now that Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are Friends,
…and they both are spending quality time with each on screen (SRK reunited with Salman on Bigg Bos9), as well as off screen, we guess the duo would surely come to a concrete conclusion. Fans are now hoping that the two superstars soon try to resolve the clash so that neither of their films – Raees or Sultan is affected.
These days Nobody Dares to Release their Film with Salman Khan, Even Spectre Was Postponed
If you remember even the Hollywood producers had apprehension releasing their movie with Salman Khan movie. This is the reason why James Bond film ‘Spectre’ which was earlier supposed to be released on 6th November in India released a week later only after the release of Salman Khan’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
