Eid is synonymous with Salman Khan films. The superstar has been releasing his mega-budgeted films on the auspicious occasion of Eid year after year and rolls in a lot of money after all his movies go on to pull in huge collections.
Like every year, Salman had booked upcoming Eid for the release of his much-awaited action-thriller Race 3. But it looks like his ex-flame Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has decided to lock horns with the superstar on Eid next year.
The former beauty queen will enter the fray with her forthcoming film Fanney Khan, which also stars Anil Kapoor in an important role. This clash of titans has got everyone excited for more reasons than one.
“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 theatres,” says a source.
Confirming the release date of the film, Fanney Khan team released a statement which read, “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 is no better day than Eid (to release the film).”
Race 3 is directed by Remo D’Souza while Fanney Khan is being helmed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
