With India and Pakistan bickering with each other and as anger against Pakistani artistes for not speaking out against terrorists brims over, reports have emerged that the release date for Excel Entertainment’s Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees might be pushed back further.
Raees was originally meant to release during Eid 2016.
However, Salman Khan’s Sultan too was slated to arrive in theaters on the same day, and rather than set up a big box office clash, Excel, SRK and director Rahul Dholakia decided to postpone their film’s release to January 2017.
There was just one hitch though — the date they wanted had already been taken by Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
