The much talked about clash between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan this Eid has been finally averted.
As expected Shah Rukh Khan has blinked first. According to a the reliable sources, “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.”
Shahrukh Khan never wanted his film to release on Eid as he knew that this festive period belongs to Salman. As per the reports Raees is postponed by at least two weeks. Now SRK starrer will now either take on Varun Dhawan Dhishoom on July 29 or Shahid Kapoor's Rangoon on 27 September.
Here is Shahrukh Khan's statement earlier today.
"“I think logic will be to shift (release dates of both ‘Raees’ and ‘Sultan’). We will try and figure out a way so that it doesn’t eat into each other’s business. It is awkward… it’s like what are we doing. I don’t think we like to have it. Adi is my family and so is Farhan Akhtar. With all due respect I will speak to Adi, Salman (about avoiding the clash). I have spoken to Farhan already. If we have to change, one of us will move on."
“If they are adamant or fixated that somehow due to some sense of righteousness Eid belongs to Salman Khan so be it."
