Although his and Salman Khan’s films are releasing on Eid the next year SRK is hardly fazed, and insists that there is no clash between the two superstars.
There is no issue… Let them also release. It’s very simple: their distribution and production offices feel their film should release on Eid, while my distribution office feels that ours is designed for Eid. So, we both have decided [on the same date], but there’s no clash the way it’s being made out to be.
In fact, this is not the first time his film will release with another film. For instance, Jab Tak Hai Jaan clashed with Ajay Devgn-starrer Son of Sardar in 2012. “Films will come and go. But honestly, it’s fortunate that whenever my film has released with another one, we have, by God’s grace, been safe every time. It doesn’t make me pompous when I say that my film has done well,” says SRK.
