Shah Rukh Khan’s “Raees” has been pushed to 2017, avoiding a release with Salman Khan’s “Sultan”.
The Rahul Dholakia-directed film, which was scheduled to release alongside “Sultan” this Eid, will now release on January 26, 2017.
“It was not an easy decision to move the film. Weunderstand that ‘Raees’ is highly anticipated. However, a film of such magnitude requires the appropriate showcasing and therefore, we have decided to shift our release date to 26th January, 2017,” the producers said in a statement.
