The guessing game is finally over...
Sultan and Raees are two of the biggest movies of this year. If that wasn't enough, they were even pitted against each other at the box office this Eid. Nothing could have gotten bigger than this in Bollywood. The moment the clash was announced, everybody was busy speculating who would step down. Salman and Shah Rukh Khan's growing friendship also made people hopeful that this clash might not happen at the end. And guess what? The hope has become a reality. Shah Rukh's Raees has left the fort for Salman's Sultan to enjoy an undeterred run!
Trade Analyst Komal Nahta tweeted, "And now, here's the news of the year!! ShahRukhKhan's Raees has been postponed. It will NOT clash with SalmanKhan's Sultan on Eid this year." Check out the tweet here:
This was evident. The Baap of all clashes in Bollywood would have hurt the business of both the films because both the Khans have unprecedented fan following. Whenever the makers of the films were asked if they would postpone the release, they rubbished it completely. When Salman was asked about it, he seemed pretty kicked about the whole clash. He had also joked that everytime Shah Rukh clashes with him at the box office, the Raees actor emerges victorious. So he need not worry.
Shah Rukh, on the other hand, in an EXCLUSIVE chat with Bollywoodlife, had hinted at a possible shift in the release date of Raees. He had said, " I guess we (Raees) could shift. But I don’t know the readiness of Sultan. Raees will be ready in January, in like 20 days. Plus, they all are friends – Adi (Aditya Chopra), Salman (Khan), Ali (Abbas Zafar), I know them all. So, if mutually we all can figure out a date where one of us goes a week up or down, we might! Or we might not!"
