Here is good news for all Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan's fans! According to recent reports, SRK's Raees and Salman's Sultan will not clash at the box office on Eid. So, what is the reason behind the change of dates? Let us tell you.
Salman Khan's movie Sultan will not release on Eid as the shooting of the movie got delayed by a few weeks because the leading actress of the movie, Anushka Sharma, was finalised only a few days back.
In the past, when Shahrukh was asked to comment on the clash between Raees and Sultan, he had said, "Yeah, I guess we (Raees) could shift.''

Shahrukh Khan further added, ''But I don't know the readiness of Sultan. Raees will be ready in January, in like 20 days.''

'Plus, they all are friends - Adi (Aditya Chopra), Salman (Khan), Ali (Abbas Zafar), I know them all. So, if mutually we all can figure out a date where one of us goes a week up or down, we might! Or we might not," said SRK.
Trade analysts are saying that it is a good decision to avoid the clash between Shahrukh Khan's Raees and Salman Khan's Sultan.

Talking about the same, a source told Bollywood Life, ''Sultan and Raees won't be clashing on Eid anymore. Aditya Chopra and Salman Khan took a long time in finalising the leading actress of the film and though Salman has shot for various portions of the film already, a lot of shots and post-production work is still pending. Aditya Chopra also wants this to be one of the biggest films of the year and hence he is going to be looking into a lot of aspects of the film including Anushka Sharma's look for the film.''
The source further added, ''They will make her look like a real wrestler and also train her to speak in a Haryanvi accent before starting the shoot. This means that Sultan will still be on the floor till April end and the makers won't be able to complete all the post-production work till Eid. It seems the producers will now look for another suitable release date and make an official announcement soon."
