Bollywood has a tradition of scheduling movie releases on Fridays. This is because it’s the start of the weekend and people tend to enjoy it by watching movies. As a result, there are often clashes between releases. It is for this reason that some filmmakers tend to release their work during festivals in a hope to make gains at the box office. We have already seen some interesting clashes at the box-office in 2017 like ‘Raees’ vs ‘Kaabil’ Meri Pyaari Bindu’ vs ‘Sarkar 3’ ‘Baadshaho’ vs ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhan’, ‘Secret Superstar’ vs ‘Golmaal Again’. But, even before we have stepped into 2018, clashes have found their place on the calendar already.
One of the most interesting clashes to be witnessed in 2018 will be between.Shahrukh Khan-Ranveer Singh-Sushant Singh Rajput. Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, Kedarnath will hit the theatres not in June (as reports suggested earlier) but on December 21, 2018.
Aanand L Rai’s film starring Shah Rukh Khan might clash with Rohit Shetty’s remake of Telugu film Temper, starring Ranveer Singh. Meanwhile the release of Kedarnath has been shifted from June to December 2018. Kedarnath includes Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan. Rohit Shetty’s next, starring Ranveer Singh will also hit the screen during the Christmas weekend. While, Aanand L Rai’s film starring SRK is also slated for a Christmas release. King Khan King Khan will be stepping outside his comfort zone of a serial romantic to play a dwarf in this movie.
Christmas 2018 seems to be like a clash of the behemoths in Bollywood, but it is still a year away. Will any of the films see a change in their release dates? Only time will tell.
