Bollywood clash of the titans is now averted. SRK’s RAEES is the one to blink first and the mighty clash of the Khans – Salman Khan’s SULTAN v/s SRK RAEES which was supposed to happen on this Eid is now prevented.


It is reported that after all discussion, scrutiny and inspection, Shah Rukh Khan and his producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar have moved RAEES to January 2017. RAEES will now cash on 2017 Republic day weekend and release on Thursday 26th January 2017.

The makers of RAEES in a joint statement 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."

Speculations about the prevention of the clash where on and it got swelled after the dismal performance of SRK’s FAN ( as per SRK’s standards and stardom) at the box office.. though King Khan gave his best after CHAK DE as an actor, the movie failed to connect with the audience and his fans.

RAEES helmed by Rahul Dholakia is a period drama featuring SRK as the bootlegger during the 80’s in Gujarat. RAEES also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan.
