Salman Khan Sultan Release Date Unchanged: Shahrukh Khan Raees Postponed: Bollywood top actor Salman is the leading actor and is the highest paid Indian actor currently. All his recent outings ended up as super hits at the box-office, and no other film dares to hit the screens during and after the release of Salman’s films. (check: Sardaar Gabbar Singh collections.)
Bollywood bhai had fabulous 2015 as his movies Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo ended up as huge box-office hits. He received a huge relief from 2002 Hit and Run Case, which left him and his family completely relieved. With this excitement, Salman is now shooting for his next movie Sultan.
Salman Khan Sultan Release Date Unchanged: Shahrukh Khan Raees Postponed
‘Dabangg’ Khan had differences with Shah Rukh Khan from the past few years and the duo did not even face other in the past few years. Even if they have been spotted each other at a public event, Shahrukh and Salman ignored each other. However all of a sudden, Shahrukh and Sallu cleared the differences between them, and they have been bonding with each other frequently.
Salman and Shahrukh even are promoting each other’s films. Sallu mia is currently shooting for his upcoming movie Sultan, and the film is being directed by Abbas Ali Zafar. He will be seen as a wrestler in the movie, and he has been working hard practicing wrestling.
Sultan has been slated for release during Eid this year, and Shahrukh is currently shooting for his upcoming movie Raees which is being directed by Rahul Dholakia. Shahrukh will be seen as a don in the film which discusses liquor mafia. Earlier, Shahrukh’s Raees too has been slated for release during Eid this year.Salman Khan Sultan Release Date Unchanged: Shahrukh Khan Raees Postponed
However, now the producers are thinking to change the release date of Raees so as to avoid the clash between two big movies. The clash will not be good for either of the two movies, especially for SRK. If you remember, Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale was released along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. And both the movies had to share the screens across the nation. Dilwale was severely affected by the situation.
Sultan is bigger than Bajirao Mastani, and it will not be practical to release both at the same time. Thus, SRK and Excel are looking for a new release date in late July or early August. An insider reported that they are currently looking at July 29 (Dishoom) and August 12 (Rustom). The twist came in when Mohenjo Daro was announced to release on the same day as of Rustom.
However, they wouldn’t like to release Raees with Dishoom as it stars Varun Dhawan who is doing well at the box office as well as he starred as SRK’s younger brother in Dilwale. Moreover, it won’t be fair to producer Sajid Nadiadwala.Salman Khan Sultan Release Date Unchanged: Shahrukh Khan Raees Postponed
Earlier, Sajid’s Baaghi, which stars Tiger Shroff was to release on April 14, but when Raees was announced on that date, he had to leave the date. But, now he won’t move Baaghi date as on the same day Kick was released. So, it can be said that it’s an emotional attachment of his with it.
Now, the Raees producers are left with August 12. Three films releasing on the same day would be a problem. It seems unlikely and again not profitable. If there was only one film, then SRK’s upcoming movie could be released, but taking on two (Rustom vs Mohenjo Daro – Akshay Kumar vs Hrithik Roshan) at the same time is a bigger risk.
