Hero and Welcome Back clash averted

A clash between ‘Hero’, a film starring newcomers and a established franchise like ‘Welcome Back’, could have proved disastrous for Eros International, other investors and actors involved in both the film.

However, better sense has prevailed and ‘Hero’, produced by Salman Khan Films, has been pushed ahead by a week.

‘Welcome Back’ will release on September 4 and ‘Hero’ will release a week later on September 11.

Sources say, the decision was taken after ‘Kya Kool Hain Hum 3’ and ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’, both previously scheduled for September 11 release, were¬†postponed.

‘Pyaar Ka Punchama 2’ is expected to release in the last week of September, while Kya Kool Hai Hum 2 will release later this year.



  • Hope Bm and dilwale clash gets averted otherwise our king kong will have to manipulate the collections like hny to cross 200crs
    king kong Rocks

  • Salman credit will only b for bringing Anu shetty into limelight. Have a feeling like shradda kapoor ,suniel shetty daughter will shine. Her Dad is a fine actor too his hey days. As 4 aditya pancholi n his son….no comments!!!

  • @Destroyers of khans
    Why blame Salman to avoid clash bro? It’s his banner but not him directing d movie. Salman is too experience to know that in his career he has seen how Anil Nana Paresh have giving so much smiles to d audience. He knows very well sooraj pancholi is a tiny ant in front of blockbuster actors I named above even John alone overshadows sooraj being new and a rookie. So definitely unless Salman is out of his mind he will risk that gamble. Even leading Directors like Leela bhansali had to shift their dates so why wont Salman that’s just d producers make use of his medulla oblangata??

  • I also feel doing 7 movies in 5 years ALL doing over 100 crores and setting records for highest grossers per decade 2wice ryt from when he entered d movie industry despite attempting more movies than d other KHANS with more FLOPS but still never gave up. All these Have to do with guts n confidence and not fear. 4 get bout release date cos many smaller stars movies earn big even on non holiday. So I won’t call Salman d most feared actors among d Khans…nahh.

  • Salman lost in this battle. Salman lost to John, don’t know how will he face Sarook’s Raees. I think he will be looser at that time. Hero will be disaster for sure.

  • Salmental produced Hero featuring a criminal will sank without a trace. Than Salmental will be found on the roads manging vikh. Lol

  • I am remembring just 1 thing…when salman said backoff …hahahahahahahaHahhHAhahaha…such a hypocrite

  • Thank god there is no akshay in welcome back…then if it would have clashed with bajrangi bhaijaan ….even bajrangi bhaijaan would hve sunk like titanic…
