One of next year’s most awaited films is Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’. While a lot has been said in the media about the film, we now hear that the makers of the film Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment who are ensuring the film gets a wide release have sold the worldwide distribution rights of the film to Eros.
The reason behind this apart from the recent successes Eros has had, is that the production – distribution house has a vast reach within the US and UK markets. Directed by Rahul Dholakia, ‘Raees’ is being produced by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Gauri Khan in association with RCE is slated for release on Eid next year.
Interestingly Shahrukh Khan's next film Dilwale will clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani which is also produced by Eros International. There are reports that Eros and Shahrukh Khan have settled a deal with Eros. So Eros will postpone Bajirao Mastani to 25 December 2015.
Though Red Chillies Entertainment have denied these reports saying they have not made a final decision yet.
