When Riteish Sidhwani announced that Raees will be going to release on 26th January 2017, it set up a three way clash between Raees, Kaabil and Baadshaho. However as per the latest announcement, Ajay Devgn starrer Baadshaho has been postponed.
Apparently, this decision was reached after both Riteish Sidhwani and Rakesh Roshan approached Kumar to delay the release of his production. Commenting on the postponement of the film, producer Bhushan Kumar says, “Yes it’s true that Rakesh Roshanji & Ritesh Sidhwani called me to request if we could shift the date of release of Baadshaho. Given our long standing relationship, I accepted their request”. With this Baadshaho that stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jamwal, Ileana D’cruz and Esha Gupta is slated to hit the screens on May 12.
Meanwhile there are also reports that Kaabil will also be postponed to a later date. 28 April date is being speculated in however it cannot be confirmed as of now. If this happens, Shahrukh Khan’s Raees will get a solo release.
