One hasn’t heard the last of Shah Rukh Khan‘s films clashing with others. Just when it is certain that his Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar are going to indulge in some mighty face off this Diwali, here is more. Apparently, his Chennai Express and Happy New Year are eyeing Eid and Christmas release next year. However, trouble in paradise is that these dates are already booked by Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan.

“It is already a two way battle between Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar next Eid with Sher Khan (or remake of South flick ‘Brindavanam’) and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 clashing with each other. Even though latter is progressing fast, former is yet to begin. Still, Salman’s presence is guaranteed on Eid. It would be clash of all times if Shah Rukh’s Chennai Express also hits the screens on the same day. Let’s not forget that Salman’s power in Eid is undefeated while Akshay’s OUATIM 2 has a strong Muslim flavour to it,” comments a source.

On the other hand it is just apt that Shah Rukh releases his Happy New Year next Christmas as the timing would be just perfect. However yet again there is a biggie already planted for this day, what with Aamir Khan’s ‘P.K.’ being booked for that day.

“Just like Salman is synonymous with Eid, Aamir and Christmas go well together. Moreover, the film is being directed by Rajkumar Hirani and the combination is way too lethal, especially after 3 Idiots. On the other hand Farah Khan’s subject for the Shah Rukh starrer is the key here as it is centred on the New Year,” the source continues.

It is understandable if Shah Rukh is eyeing these dates since the only other choice, Diwali, is already booked by Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan for Krrish 3. With all key dates already occupied, the panic button is already being pressed as box office in the recent past has shown that holidays play a major role in a film being a superhit or a blockbuster, case in point being Ek Tha Tiger which benefited immensely from Eid.

  1. the key 2 salmans success is dat he behaves like a common indian whereas SRK is busy impressing d NRI’s!!!
    luk at SRK’s last 3 movies….all of dem were shot outside india..his next movie too has an UK connection!!! c’mon SRK learn somethingh 4m d chulbul pandey!!!

    • Sallu’s all film’s r copied from South Indian films. so all of his films shooted in India. His acting is totally boaring and action, totally copied from South Indian Movies. SRK’s no need to learn from copied master hero Salman. SRK has own style. he has different type of Movies and acting. it doesn’t matter where the film shooted but it’s a matter what is story of the film. SRK is King of Bollywood.

  2. srk has never been defeated whenever his film clashed with other actors film on the same day.out of salman,srk ,aamir, akshay nd hrithik srk has got the highest number of fans in india.also he does huge promotion.he should definetly release CE on eid nd HNY on one can defeat him.he will be the ultimate winner.

    • i m not fully agree with your comment. SRK not only hit with farah khan. SRK also hit with yash chopra, Karon Jahor, Farah Khan.

  3. Lets forget everything but not King Khan the badshaha of the bollywood.Let it be chulbul pandey or Mr.perfect no one can defeat KING AND BADSHAHA of BOLLYWOOD.

  4. chanay express will be release in jun-july as rohit declare it before his film shoting, while happy new year will be release in 214,so there is no clash btwn SRK & salman-akshe -amir, if this clash is happen then SRK will be true winner,,,,,,

  5. I think only Salman’s next & OUATIM 2 will be released in next eid as Rohit Shetty always targets july or diwali for his films’ release.but if that actually happens,SRK will definately come out as the ultimate winner..
