Sultan Vs Raees


There were rumours doing the rounds that Salman Khan’s 2016 Eid release, Sultan, has been postponed to Diwali 2016 to avoid the much-hyped clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’.

However, reliable sources at Yash Raj Films, have confirmed that the film will release as planned and that there are no plans to postpone the release date.

The director of Sultan Ali Abbas Zafar confirmed that Sultan is definitely going to release on Eid 2016. He said

‘YRF spokesperson has already clarified #Sultan is scheduled to release on EID 2016. Please follow YRF Twitter handle for more updates.’


Sultan will go on floors in the second week of November 2015, soon after the release of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, and the shoot will be wrapped up by the end of March 2016.

Now that ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has released in theatres, Salman will be working out on his physique and look to play the role of a wrestler in ‘Sultan’.

At an event to promote ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, the actor had said “I have to work a lot for this film. It’s going to be a stressful film. In November, I start shooting for it. There is lot of action in it. Wrestling, weights, (build) lot of muscles. I have to be very strong”

Salman added that ‘Sultan’ is an out-an-out commercial sports film with a love story, action, emotion and music. He had also stressed on the point that, unlike Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’, he wouldn’t have children in ‘Sultan’ and there wouldn’t be a ‘negative force’ in the Ali Abbas Zafar directed film.
