A while ago Yash Raj Films announced that Salman Khan’s Sultan will release in Eid 2016. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar who last directed Gunday starring Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor will helm this project. Salman has already started preparing for Sultan. The actor is on a strict diet and has started training for his role. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor will play a 40-year old boxer. The film will reportedly go on floors in November 2015.
With Sultan’s release date being announced, a big clash will happen at the box office in Eid 2016. We say so because, not too long ago there were reports that Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees starring Mahira Khan is slated to release in Eid 2016. So far Salman has always dominated Eid since most of his films release on the festive occasion except in 2013 since SRK’s Chennai Express starring Deepika Padukone released on Eid.
Shah Rukh Khan is currently working on Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale which also stars Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. The actor has already finished one schedule of Raees before he left for Bulgaria to shoot for Rohit’s film. Though there are reports that the two superstars will clash at the box office in Eid 2016, we doubt it because Salman and Shah Rukh are two of the biggest superstars in Bollywood and if they end up clashing at the box office , they will end up eating into each other’s business and it’s highly doubtful if the two will do that!
