Bollywood superstars Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan are known to be arch rivals even after they put on a patch-up show recently. It looks like this cold war between the two Khans may get bigger next year with their movies clashing on Eid and Diwali.
Releasing movies on a Eid was always a Salman Khan 'thing'. 2013 saw a change in this pattern with SRK releasing Chennai Express which broke all box office records. Soon after this, Sallu made sure he blocked next year's Eid to release his upcoming movie Kick.
However, the latest news is that Shahrukh does not want to let go of his newly found lucky day. We hear that the 47-year-old actor too is getting set to release a movie on the same day.
The fight is not just for Eid. Most of the filmmakers want to release ther movies on holidays. So they have Diwali as another target. Shahrukh is working with Farah Khan for the movie titled Happy New Year and on the other hand we have Salman tying up with Prabhu Deva for a movie yet to be titled. Both the movies are looking forward to a holiday-season release and Diwali is an option. We wonder if this will be another clash between the two khans.
Another possibility that may occur is a clash with Aamir Khan. Aamir, the perfectionist is set to release Peekay on Christmas 2014 and he would not be too happy if Sallu or SRK released any of their movies on the same day.
