Now the latest we hear is that Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which will be directed by Sooraj Barjatya will release in Diwali 2015.

While Salman has always banked on Eid, Diwali has pre dominantly been Shahrukh Khan’s territory. However, off late the Don actor and the Dabangg Khan are invading into each other’s terrain quite often. Most recent example can be King Khan’s Chennai Express.

Bollywoodlifers, the fight is only expected to heat up in the coming months. Till then stay tuned to this space for more updates on our very own Karan-Arjun.
