As per ritual, Salman Khan is going to treat us to another one of his movie on Eid, next year. But what’s interesting is that this time even Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is going to make a grand appearance on Eid at the Box Office in 2018. Well, it seems that Salman Khan is going to be facing quite the clash with ex-lover Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the box office when the former’s Race 3 will clash with the latter’s Fanney Khan.
Since their quite messy break-up in 2002, both the stars Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have kept each other at arm’s length and been on very stiff and cordial terms. Although, it seems now they both have to take on each other at the Box Office with their much anticipated projects, this Eid in 2018.
A source told Mid-Day, “It will be an exciting clash, since Aishwarya and Salman’s relationship continues to hold the audience’s attention, even years after it went kaput. While Salman boasts of tremendous box-office pull, Ash and Anil too have a huge fan following and will draw the audience to the theaters.”
Not only that, but the source also added that it was an informed decision on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor’s part, as the producers of Fanney Khan did ask them before finalising the festive dates.
“Arjun N Kapoor, Prernaa Arora, Bhushan Kumar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra met Aishwarya and Anil, who were happy to have a festival release. The team is aware of Race 3 also releasing on Eid, but they are confident of their film”, said the source.
Also, Producers Kapoor and Kumar released a joint statement saying, “We have locked the release date of Fanney Khan on Eid 2018 (June 15). We decided on Eid because the lead character Fanney Khan, played by Anil Kapoor, is a Muslim character and there’s no better day than Eid (to release it).”
Well, it is definitely going to be quite a dramatic and intense clash at the Box Office next year on Eid! Yet, we shall definitely make the best of it!
