The upcoming film of Shah Rukh Khan, “Raees” was said to clash with Salman Khan’s “Sultan” in Eid but it is now confirmed that Yash Raj Films has avoided the clash and moved the release date of Raees. Meanwhile, it will get into a controversy as “Raees” release date has been moved to Diwali, which will clash with another Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn’s “Shivaay”.
The news has already made Ajay impatient. In 2012, Ajay’s “Son of Sardaar” released on the same day with SRK’s “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” and the second one went to become a hit.
Ajay is said to have spent a lot of dough and emotions in his next film and he will reasonably have distressed with the turn of events. A source says, “The makers of ‘Raees’ had the option of releasing the film in the Independence day weekend or Diwali. But they would be clashing with two big films, Akshay Kumar‘s ‘Rustom’ and Hrithik Roshan‘s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ if they had released during Independence Day. So Diwali seems like the only option.”
Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is also scheduled to release on Diwali but SRK is likely to ask his buddy Karan to move the date.
