Just when everyone thought Salman Khan would have a free run this Eid with Bharat comes a whirlwind that may possibly sweep Salman’s festive offering off its feet.
On June 5, the day when Bharat is being unleashed, Fox-Star is all set to release the latest super-hero film Dark Phoenix from Marvel.
We all know what Marvel’s Avengers : The Endgame has done to the boxoffice the worldover.Interestingly, Dark Phoenix releases in the US on June 7. In India its release date has been pre-poned by two days to June 5 only so that it can be released on the same day as Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat.
A source close to the Dark Phoenix distributors Fox-Star says they want to put up an “honourable competition for Bharat”.
Dark Phoenix is being released in four languages English, Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. Interestingly Sophie Turner who is Priyanka Chopra’s sister-in-law plays the lead in Dark Phoenix . Priyanka as we all know, walked out of Bharat at the last moment leaving Salman very upset and angry.
He has more reason to be upset now. It is apparent that this Eid won’t be a cakewalk for Salman anymore.
