Raees vs Sultan - Big Box Office EID Clash.

Lots of queries are received regarding Raees vs Sultan big box office EID clash. Actually major part of query is whether both big films are clashing this EID or not? If clash is happening which film will get bigger opening? Which film will have better lifetime collection.

Coming to first question. Yes, makers of both the film have officially confirmed that they are going to release their respective film on EID. Raees major part of shooting is already completed. So, there will be no such delay on that project. Sultan shooting is started and major part of shooting is still to start. However makers have assured that film is on schedule to release this coming EID.

Our Take: We still think both films will not clash for sure. One film will make way to another favourable release date. Reasons: recent equation between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Secondly the equation between SRK and YRF. 

Now next question is which film will get bigger opening? Right now looking at the buzz and Salman Khan and YRF combination, Sultan is set to take bigger opening.

Which film will have better lifetime collection? That will depend on content. In recent time when Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani clashed. Dilwale took better opening because of buzz and star value. But since content of Bajirao Mastani was better it surpassed Dilwale in lifetime figures. So, similarly whichever content between Raees and Sultan will be better will be a higher grosser.

  1. Dear All,

    In my opinion, this much awaited clash might not happen due to the obvious reasons. Both films belong to a superstar actor along with a big production house. Just recently all has seen the outcome of clash between Dilwale and BM. If released solo Dilwale could have grossed a minimum of 200crs and BM might have gone past 220crs but the effect of clash restricted both of them well short of these benchmarks. So, Yes, the festive occasion might accommodate two big films but this is also the fact that collections of both films will get effected which is not good for industry. Again, since Raees and Sultan belongs to two greatest actors who have very good bonding now a days and it can be a reason in order to avoid a clash. Even few days back SRK was quoted as saying in an interview that they all are friends and obviously we will work together to find a suitable option to make a comfortable business atmosphere for both the films. Third and the most important, though till now both production houses have confirmed the same release date but if the reports (http://www.bollywoodkigyaan.in/2016/01/heres-why-salman-khans-sultan-is-not.html)are to be believed then Sultan leading lady has been finalized just now which means it will take lot of time to prepare her as per the character requirement. As per the report, on one hand the Raees suiting will be over by Jan end followed by post production works in order to complete it as EID release. On the other hand, Sultan few portions have been shot and the major part will start only in feb mid. The delay in selection of the leading lady will take the shooting to complete in april end which makes it difficult to complete before eid. So, the chances of clash is less. HOwever, the official confirmation can only make the picture clear. Till then the clash of the titans is scheduled. In my view, If clash happens the Sultan will open big and continue if content is well. Raees will have to take a beating, atleast in the opening, due to charisma of Salman but it wont harm them big as it also has SRK factor and it will gain big if supported by good content. Finally If NO clash then its the best for all, especially the film industry.

  2. srk in content movie.........so opening will be bigger for......raees
