A few months back it was revealed that Shah Rukh Khan would have another box office clash in 2016 after Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani clashed this year. But the next clash will be the BIGGEST CLASH that anyone will witness. Why do we say this? The two biggest superstars of Bollywood – Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are going to clash at the box office next Eid when their films, Raees and Sultan respectively, release on the same day.
Time and again the question was asked to both of them, whether they would avoid the clash or not and if there is any way to avoid the clash. They haven’t mentioned any plans to shift their release dates till now. But, yesterday Shah Rukh Khan finally opened up. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with BollywoodLife, Shah Rukh Khan mentioned, “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.”
