Mumbai: What would happen if Salman Khan starrer ‘Sultan’ and Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’ release on the same date? A huge and an ugly clash at the Box Office, no?
Both these films would have eaten up each other’s fair share of business and even distributers would have had a tough time taking a call on the screenings!
But the good news is that the two Titans won’t clash at the Box Office and it’s almost confirmed now!
A report in DNA suggests that Salman asked the makers of ‘Sultan’ to postpone the release of the film to a later date. And this would mean SRK’s ‘Raees’ will have a solo release on Eid 2016.
The makers of both these films would have observed the response of the audiences to ‘Diwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Given the fact that these two big budget multi-starrer films released on the same day, it was evident that the collections of both these films would suffer at least to some extent.
Now that ‘Raees’ and ‘Sultan’ will not be releasing on the same date, fans of these two superstars can heave a sigh of relief.
It could either be a move motivated by personal camaraderie or a strategic one - the two superstars can now hit the screens without having to share it.
