Shahrukh Khan's film Fan directed by Maneesh Sharma was pushed due to the state of the art VFX works. Although the reason was due to the VFX works, one gets to feel if SRK is eyeing for an Eid release?
Shahrukh Khan has released his big films on Eid like Chennai Express which became a blockbuster. However, it was always Sallu bhai who gets the Eid slot for all his films.
The confusion about Fan team postponing the release date and now eyeing Eid makes one really think.
A leading daily has given in quotes saying, "The other holidays or festival release dates are already booked by other stars. None of the other holiday dates were free - be it Eid, Diwali, Gandhi Jayanti or Christmas. It was only Bakri Eid which gave Fan a window for a proper holiday release. Else, the team would have had to shift the film to 2016 - something SRK himself did not want."
Also the daily says, "Bakri Eid falls on a Wednesday. This means, Fan will have a five-day opening weekend, adding to its performance at the B-O", the source adds, albeit on a cautionary note, "By chance, the Bakri Eid release plan fails, Fan might not release this year at all. It might only release early next year".
Well let's wait for the makers to announce the release date.
