Salman Khan starrer Sultan is re-writing history with its terrific collection at the box-office, even during the weekdays. Earlier, Salman Khan starrer Sultan and Shahrukh Khan starrer Raees were meant to clash at the box-office.
Later, SRK postponed its release and now the movie is releasing next year i.e., 2017. Talking to a leading daily, Shahrukh Khan gave two reasons as to why Raees was not released with Sultan.
He told, "We have two reasons (for not releasing Raees with Sultan). One is, me and Salman spoke about it that big films have their level release wise. They should get released in at least 3500 to 4000 theatres at one time."
"We all have faced it at certain point of time that two big films came together and did not get the desired theatrical release. This is quite a bog loss for the budget of the film. Till the time we have eight to nine thousand theatres for release of two big films, this cannot happen."
"Second part was, we were still working on it and I was injured. I have still some portions to shoot for a day. But the film is ready. We thought of an alternate date in this year. But some other big film was coming then," added the Dilwale actor.
