Latest reports suggest that Shahrukh Khan has decided to release his Raees on Eid 2015. Usually Salman Khan claims the lucrative Eid period for his releases as lot of his recent super hits were Eid releases. However, Shahrukh Khan claimed the Eid for the first time last year with Chennai Express and the movie turned out to be a blockbuster. Looks like Shahrukh Khan has decided to follow suite next year as well.
Raees is going to be directed by National Award winning film Parzania fame Rahul Dholakia. This movie also stars Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor. Shooting of the movie will start once Shahrukh Khan is done with his next release Happy New Year. Though the producers had denied this news before, Ritesh Sidhwani (one of the producers), confirmed to a magazine that the movie will be arriving on Eid 2015.
Salman Khan hasn’t claimed Eid 2015 spot. That is probably because his upcoming projects after this year’s Eid release Kick is only in planning and pre-production stage. Nonetheless, it looks like Salman won’t have an Eid release!
