Shah Rukh Khan forgoes Eid space for Salman Khan
Since, the last three years, Salman Khan indisputably ruled the box office during the Eid festival, with his films like Dabangg, Bodyguard and this year’s Ek Tha Tiger. In a way it can be said that Salman created a new festive weekend for Eid and literally conquered the ticket windows with back-to-back blockbusters.
A few days ago, it was being said that Salman’s original Eid 2013 release Sher Khan had been kept at the backburner. Taking advantage of the vacant space, Shah Rukh decided to release his Chennai Express on Eid 2013.
However, Salman did not take it lying down. He and Sohail decided to remake the Telugu blockbuster Brindavanam in Hindi. Brindavanam director Vamsi Paidipally will in all probability direct this film too.
Better sense has prevailed upon Shah Rukh Khan who has decided to forego the Eid slot and release Chennai Express two-three weeks after the Brindavanam remake release.
Incidentally, the film is being remade in Bengali as Khoka 420 that stars Dev, Nusrat Jahan and Subhashree Ganguly reprising the roles of N. T. Rama Rao Jr., Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha respectively.
