The potentially catastrophic clash between [tooltip id="c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92" keyword_color="#000000" background_color="#ffffff"][tooltip id="4db8f5608d45f5de7881d9bce162f4bf"]Salman Khan">[/tooltip][/tooltip] and Shah Rukh Khan this Eid has been finally averted.
As expected Shah Rukh Khan has blinked first. Or rather, his producer Ritesh Sidhwani who has postponed the release of Raees by a few weeks.According to a very reliable source, “Shah Rukh’s Raees is not clashing with Salman’s Sultan after all. In fact after what the clash of Shah Rukh’s Dilwale with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani did to the former, Shah Rukh was opposed to the Eid clash.It was producer Ritesh Sidhwani who insisted they won’t budge.”
Better sense has now prevailed . Raees is postponed by at least two weeks. Buzz is that the Shah Rukh starrer will now take on either Sajid Nadiadwala’s Dhishoom(featuring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandes) on July 29 or Ashutosh Gowariker’s Mohenjo Daro with Hrithik Roshan in the lead on 12 August.”
Says the source, “Raees has moved out of what is traditionally Salman’s release date(Eid). It will take on something that is as comparable for competition at the boxoffice like Dhishoom or Mohenjo Daro.”
