We have mentioned few times in our earlier posts that logistically clash of Sultan vs Raees is not possible. And hence, definitely one film will make way for another. Also, both film lead stars are good friends and much awaited possible clash will be averted. If the much hyped clash had happened then it would have been definitely 'Mother of all clashes.' But now it is confirmed by the makers of Raees that it is postponed from EID 2016 to Republic Day 2017.
Here is below the official statement.
In a joint statement, Shah Rukh Khan, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani said, “It was not an easy decision to move the film. We understand that this film is highly anticipated. However, a movie of such magnitude requires the appropriate showcasing and therefore, we have decided to shift our release date to 26th January 2017."
Yes, Raees may have averted clash with Sultan for time being. But if this film now releases on 26th January 2017 then it has to clash with Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan and Baadshaho starring Ajay Devgn. So, is that a right move we can't comment on that right now.
Do let us your thought on Raees postponement in comment scetion.
