As the release date of Raees starring Shahrukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan is out. There is lot of murmur across all part of trade and also across all fans. News is Raees will release on EID 2016. However already there are news that Salman Khan's big ticket next with Yash Raj Films 'Sultan' is also tentatively scheduled for EID 2016 release. So, will box office afford such two biggies release date on same date, even if its EID. Here we put some insight into the report.
Let's first talk about Sultan. News is Salman Khan has given only verbal commitment to the project. There is lot of work to be done to that project. Plus, Salman is extremely busy till September-October 2015 with Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Film casting is also to be finalised. So, makers may have earlier slated the film for EID 2016, but now it looks highly unlikely that film will now make it on that date. Makers of Raees may have come to know that fact and grabbed the opportunity with both hands and announced their release date.
As far as Raees is concerned. Film is now look certain to release on EID 2016. Ritesh Sidhwani has announced this news to a leading daily already. Film casting and pre-production work is already planned. Movie shooting will start from March 28 and major shooting is planned from September.
So, those who are asking now. Raees is more or less confirmed for EID 2016 release. Sultan is unlikely to come on same date as there is lot of work to be done before the first shoot of the film. So, its looks highly unlikely that both Srk and Salman will clash at box office on EID 2016.
