Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma unveiled the first look of their untitled film on Tuesday with Salman Khan saying that he had decided the release date of the film, scheduled to release on August 11, 2017.
Considering the fact that the date falls on Friday, it would be considered as an Independence Day release.
However, the release date did raise a few eyebrows. Few months ago, Akshay Kumar had announced the release date of his film ‘Crack’, directed by Neeraj Pandey, for Independence Day 2017.
Akshay delivered a successful film with ‘Rustom’ this Independence Day and along with ‘Crack’ for Independence Day 2017, has also announced his Reeema Kagti directorial ‘Gold’ for Independence 2018 and the actor seems to have developed a fondness for the particular occasion.
Several of Shah Rukh’s films have made headlines for its clashes with other films. ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ in 2015 was one of the biggest clashes in recent times and his film ‘Raees’ was earlier scheduled to clash with ‘Sultan’ on Eid 2016 but was later pushed to Republic Day 2017. However, even on that day, it is now scheduled to clash with Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’.
Let’s see if we get to see another clash or if the makers reschedule their release dates.
