|The year 2014 is yet to start, but our Bollywood filmmakers have started locking the release dates of their films in 2015. While Salman Khan has already booked the Eid of 2014 with his Kick, he is eyeing the Eid of 2015 as well. Apparently, Shahrukh Khan is also aiming for the same release date. What are the films?
It all started when Salman Khan announced that his Being Human production directed by Kabir Khan will release on Eid 2015. Soon the industry was abuzz with the news that Shahrukh Khan’s upcoming film with Farhan Akhtar, Raees, is also planned for Eid 2015. Though the movie is not Shahrukh Khan’s own production, he plays the titular character in it.
Eid has always been special for Salman Khan, and every year his fans wait for his movies to come on the auspicious day. His Eid releases Wanted, Bodyguard and Dabangg were phenomenal at the BO. He missed his date with Eid 2013 at the BO because of his ill-health with Jai Ho release pushed to 2014. However, the one who made merry was Shahrukh Khan, whose Chennai Express released this year on the festival and minted more than 200 crores.

Insiders claim that till now, no one has dared to release a film on Eid along with a Salman movie. This will be the first time that he is being challenged on what is considered a ‘Salman festival’ in industry circles.
Is Shahrukh Khan really going to challenge Salman Khan with his film on Eid 2015? Only time can tell! Raees is directed by Rahul Dholakia, and is an interesting story of a bootlegger and a cop.
