WEB DESK: While fans were eagerly waiting to experience the clash of Khans at Box office this Eid, it is now put to rest. In other words, Sultan and Raees will not be battling at Box Offfice this Eid.
No one but Shah Rukh Khan himself has decided to change the release date of Raees to avoid the clash.
Pinkvilla reports that the producers of Raees have decided to postpone the release of the film by a few weeks.
“Shah Rukh’s Raees is not clashing with Salman’s Sultan after all. In fact, after what the clash of Shah Rukh’s Dilwale with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani did to the former, Shah Rukh was opposed to the Eid clash. It was producer Ritesh Sidhwani who insisted they won’t budge,” a source told Pinkvilla.
Raees is likely to be postponed by two weeks and instead, will be clashing with John Abraham’s Dishoom (July 29) or Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro (August 12).
“Raees has moved out of what is traditionally Salman’s release date (Eid). It will now take on some other film like Dishoom or Mohenjo Daro,” revealed the source.
Rahul Dholakia’s, Raees is an action-thriller, featuring SRK alongside our very own Mahira Khan, along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Sultan, starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma, will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Aditya Chopra.
