As per DNA reports, Shahrukh has complained that he has been receiving indirect threats from a famous filmmaker (name not mentioned) to push his film's release date. “I won"t name this particular big time producer-director. He, I remember, called me and was very disturbed. He actually told me to postpone my film as it would destroy his film at the box office", Shahrukh said.
But, Shahrukh seems to pay least attention to the producer's demand. “All I said is that if you want me to push my film all you have to do is tell me. There"s no need to get disturbed. I don"t like or dislike this person, I just don"t think about him at all," adds the actor.
The Bollywood actors and filmmakers these days have been very choosy and careful in picking up a perfect release date since the film's fate depends on it. Few Bollywood actors also claim that one should be 'lucky' to get the release on an auspicious day like Eid or Diwali.
“You are lucky if you get a release date of your choice. I too want to see my films release during a Diwali or Eid, but these dates are reserved for the bigger stars," said actor Ranbir Kapoor.
