With Eid likely to see the box office clash of his "Raees" and friend Salman Khan's "Sultan", superstar Shah Rukh Khan feels it that would be logical to shift their release dates so that both the films do not eat into each other's business.
"Logic will be to shift the release dates. We will try and figure out a way. It is awkward... It's like, what are we doing. I don't think we would like it to be a box office clash," Shah Rukh said.
The 50 year old star said he will talk to his friend, Aditya Chopra, who is the producer of "Sultan", and Salman regarding clash of both films. "Adi is my family and so is Farhan Akhtar, ('Raees' producer). With all due respect, I will speak to Adi, Salman. I have spoken to Farhan already. If we have to change, one of us will move on. If they are adamant or fixated that somehow due to some sense of righteousness, Eid belongs to Salman, so be it.
Personally Farhan, Adi and I are friends and we don't have ego issues. If there is an opening number assumed in terms of business, we will share it 50-50 or whichever ratio. I am not saying X is a bigger star or Y."
But at the same time, Shah Rukh insisted, "As of now, we are making the film ready for Eid. Our production is ready for Eid.''
Farhan too had hinted that they will see if the clash happens or not. "In case of ''Dilwale'' and ''Bajirao Mastani'', both lost money due to the clash. One doesn't want it," SRK said, adding, "It has never been a fight of arrogance when it comes to the release of a film. I feel every film should get its due."
