Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan will clash at the Box office this Eid
The clash of titanic proportions is inevitable as Salman Sultan and Bollywood superstar Raees go head to head on Eid coming year.
Both actors are superstars, the movie are big budget entertainers with strong story lines and releasing on the same day would only serve to divide audiences and screens. As such, a situation like this would cut into each other profits and one would expect either of the two to back down and avoid the confrontation.
But its not going to happen. Ask Farhan Akhtar he producing Raees if its a wise decision to release a SRK movie alongside a Salman Khan flick and he murmurs, That has happened in the past when there have been two big releases on the same day and both of them have done well. So this depends on the audience. We leave it to them to decide. The fact is when you make a movie and you want to release it on a certain date, you have the right to.
But will the business not get divided I would rather hope that both of them will have enough followers and admirers to watch both the movie. Farhan adds, If you are making a good movie, it will work no matter which movie its clashing with. And if both Raees and Sultan turn out to be good movies, both will do equally well at the box office.
Still, given a chance, would Farhan like to shift the release dates Pat comes the reply, I do not see the reason why I need to do that, honestly So as it still stands, its Raees vs Sultan next July.
