It is ineveitable that fans will be divided when it comes to catching their favourite superstar's film on the day it release, especially when those superstars in question are Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan the clash will be epic as their big budget films open on the same day next year.
Yes, both Raees and Sultan will release during Eid next year. As such, a situation like this would cut into each other’s profits and one would expect either of the two to back down and avoid the confrontation, but will they?
Raees producer Farhan Akhtar says in a bollywoodlife.com article, “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 film and you want to release it on a certain date, you have the right to.”
But will they not lose out on profits? “I would rather hope that both of them will have enough followers and admirers to watch both the films.” Farhan adds, “If you are making a good film, it will work no matter which film it’s clashing with. And if both Raees and Sultan turn out to be good films, both will do equally well at the box office.”
So, it is Raees vs. Sultan next July!
