Salman Khan’s Sultan confirmed for Eid 2016, no delays

There were rumours doing the rounds that Salman Khan’s 2016 Eid release, Sultan, would be pushed to a later date to avert the much-hyped clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’.

However, reliable sources at Yash Raj Films, have confirmed that the film will release as planned and that there are no plans to postpone the release date.

Sultan will go on floors in the second week of November 2015, soon after the release of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, and the shoot will be wrapped up by the end of March 2016.

Now that ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has released in theatres, Salman will be working out on his physique and look to play the role of a wrestler in ‘Sultan’.

At an event to promote ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, the actor had said “I have to work a lot for this film. It’s going to be a stressful film. In November, I start shooting for it. There is lot of action in it. Wrestling, weights, (build)†lot of muscles. I have to be very strong”

Salman added that ‘Sultan’ is an out-an-out commercial sports film with a love story, action, emotion and music. He had also stressed on the point that, unlike Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’, he wouldn’t have children in ‘Sultan’ and there wouldn’t be a ‘negative force’ in the Ali Abbas Zafar directed film.



  • Oh Ajay will get solo release in Dilwali next year. Thanks bhai.
    hope BB and PRDD become 1st and 2nd highest grossers of all time.

    P.s the main reason I’m supporting Salman Khan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan is to get sympathy and support from bhai fans because my Ajay has not got a fan following.

    Come on bhai fans..hope you return the favour and support Drishyam like I’m supporting BB.

  • Excel wale fir se nawazuddin ki film rice ko postpone kar denge jaise iss baar bangistan ko kiya

    Salman is the synonym of success and epitome of power in the B town

  • Everbody knows…Raees will b delayed… ha ha ha…
    Srk and his fans feeling INSECURE after BB strom

  • the only problem between both movies should be screen’s problem otherwise both have many common fans who watch their movie.

  • In This Christmas Bajirao mastani will kill the so called king’s career & next eid Sultan will do his Antim Sanskar.

  • These all rumours are created by king’s PR team because King is not in news for many days due to BB storm.

  • Raees will be postponed for sure. Because nobody will give any screen to it after seeing BB storm.

  • lol how can any one believe in this that sultan will postpobed because of raees rofl Salman is now godfather of srk in both acting as well as great godfather in boxoffice.

  • These r May be rumours But I’m very confident that raees will be postpone….
    my words to u guys….
    believe it or not….
    sultan again 300 cr grosser…
    yeah sallu rocks…

    @JC, Iíll write a better story than you.. This time itís not about a match at Rajni level, but against international teams played both in India and Overseas. Not about short busts of double centuries and triple centuries like Sehwag or Vinod Kambli, but consistency on the pitch and love from fans off it.

    Salman: Outstanding on the dead pitches in India, scores a fluke century when playing against the Aussies overseas.. erratic and inconsistent form. Scores one double century against Bangladesh on debut and then comes up with a big triple century on his comeback after 5 years. Plays supporting roles (KKHH) in a partnership that wins India historic game in Kolkata. After averaging less than 10 with several scores of zero (Marigold, Shaadi Karke Phass Gaya, Main Aur Mrs Khanna etc etc etc) is dropped from the team and goes back to playing club cricket. Makes a comeback after 10 years and hits a purple patch scoring back to back hundreds and double hundreds against weak opposition. Commentators and experts know that the fall is inevitable, but the purple patch continues..

    Aamir: Brilliant but injury prone cricketer. Plays one good innings, gets injured and comebacks after 2 years with another brilliant knock. Whenever he comes to play, his fans come out in big numbers.. worrying that they might not get to see him bat for another two years.. They come to watch his batting excellent to watch.. beautiful cover drives..

    SRK: The Sachin Tendulkar of movies.. others like Sehwag might be scoring triple centuries, but he would last longer. Is loved by majority of people, but has haters who think he doesnít score in crucial games. Just like the Australian team in 90s and 2000s.. the best is always hated the most. His records, consistency and longevity cannot be matched. Itís something that makes the likes of Dravid and Ganguly jealous. Why canít we be as popular as Sachin? But Sachin is Sachin. Scores well overseas, scores well in India, excels at world cups and does so over a period of 25 years consistently. Love from fans doesnít come and go, there are with him even during his toughest times. They watch his worst innings and even when he gets out at a well-made 70, they give him a standing ovation. He even gets standing ovation at Lords and MCG.

    Most importantly.. years after the dust has settled.. This will be remembered as Sachin Tendulkarís era. Likewise, Bollywood is Shah Rukh Khan for those who do not even know what the industry is all about. The King. Whether you compare the record of highest numbers of hits or runs in any format, overseas or India, they both rule.

  • Superb rocking performance of Bajrangi classic bhaijaan wil take prdp to a new level and if prdp rocks then sultan wil tear apart meow bhai

  • RIP Sultan.. Raees all the way
    Expecting a really good movie from Dholakia.. half of expectations have already fulfilled by the teaser…
    Bring it onnnn…

  • @ shaggy Raees is never post pond sultan can be . this time our king will do hatrick he beat him already twice . so next year will be hatrick

  • @ Shaggy salman is running his carrer best but if you look back SRK’s constiancy then he has the maxium hit , supuerhit status both even when they came toghter Salman is Supporting role for SRK KKHH and Hum Tumara hai Sanam . that is the real fact that he copy from south and listed as A lister actors .

  • @Mohit whoever u maybe, but don’t compare someone like Sachin with bollywood stars.Don’t stoop so low in your pathetic self-destructive love for some actor.

  • @ Shaggy and Amir who knows what will be the court result of his hit and run case ,after two days he is the one involved him in deep problem which just from his last statement . so let’s wait and see . intersting if he get bail then weil clash otherwise he will clash with Sanju Babu to much fun hahhaa !
