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.



  • i dont think now a days two big superstars movie will clash.if clash happens no single screen will give chance to raees.bcoz of salman khan .in odisha when salman film releases in theatre in that no regional movie releases in that month.bcoz salman movie is running in each n every theatre.many states have the same situation.and if it eid then everyone wants to see salman on screens.

  • It will b a dream for artificial actor sarook to giv a 300cr movie so his goofy fans r frustated

  • It looks doubtful for me that this would happen.

    But, if it does, it has to be the Mother of All Clashes.

  • @ Ultron A Salmaniac he is thousand time better than your bhojpuri looser . hahah he post his statement and after that sorry that was my mistake hheeh bladdy looser like his fan like you are looser the world are critisie him even his father said meanninglless his statement looser

  • @Ajay Rocks Ranbir’s ADHM releasing on Diwali 2016 directed by karan johar, mark my words ranbir will crush shivay

  • srk is multiplex and urban king. and salman is single screen king or can say garibo ka devta. both are king in india. but in overseas king is only one. you know srk

  • Come on guys, stop being haters ! BB is a box-office storm, and Dilwale will also be a box-office storm (SRK + Rohit Shetty + Kajol combo), SRK & Salman as both powerful superstars. There isn’t a single king, but three kings khans : Aamir, SRK and Salman.
    Raees will be a content driven film, so if it’s as good as it looks, one can expect a lot from it. Sultan will be a typical action blockbuster, something that Salman’s fans love. Both can cross the 200 cr, just look how Baahubali and BB were gigantic success together !

  • abe abhi dilwale me hi uss shahrukh ki hawa nikal jayegi. sultan ke saamne wo raees kaha tikegi.
    my prediction for EID 2016 [if clash happens,but it will not bcz raees will be postponed]
    SUlTAN = 350cr.+ [more than 4500 screens]
    raees = 125cr.+ [less than 2000 screens]

  • @ajay sucks, I would love to see the two
    Biggest clash of 2016 ….!!!
    not Raees vs shivaay… but Fan vs shivaay !
    Eid 2016 : Raees vs sultan
    dilwale 2016 : Fan vs shivaay..
    will be too much fan……. lol

  • sallu fans are too much desperate and predicting each and every thing so early.yeah after one good-average movie due to Harshali-Kabir sallu and his fans gone mindless and they forgot their actual identity that they are the bhojpuris.they need to remember it’s the same EXCEL’S DON beated bhai+akki badly despite being a boring film.

    This time no mercy.this time salman will again regret for his lifetime and will cry till his lifetime due to his overconfidence.neither single screen nor multiplex audience no one will watch worst classless raziya sultan.RAEES will rock at all place due to it’s MASS+CLASS appeal.

    @bade bhai,which part in odisha you’re living.because in past 2 decade I had seen Odisha’s almost single screens rocked due to KING KHAN.and KING KHAN is worshipping in this state,so don’t behave like a fool you 2010 born actor’s fan.

    @Mohit,you rocked big time my bro.

    @sambit,@Mohit said KING SRK is the SRT of Bollywood.HE didn’t said KING SRK is a better cricketer than SRT,so don’t overreact.

    @yash chopra,in saajan,hssh,no entry(salman’s special appearance) salman’s performance bb too it he has 5 highest grossers of his own equals with KING KHAN and about this year WE have to wait till CHRISTMAS.

    @koyla rocks,remember CE vs satyagraha,what more you want koyla fan????

  • Raees all the way next Eid!!

    This time thanks to Kabir khan n munni,bhai got a good film…don’t forget Ali abbas zafar is gunday director.

  • In multiplexes there will be tough fight and in single screans there will not be any fight because nobody will give single screans to Raees.

  • We Salman fans really want clash at any cost.

    But after every 10day Srk fans starts rumors of postpone.

    One thing let clear that there is no hurdle in releasing Sultan on Eid.
    Yrf is confident & Salman will come on his favorite festival after ATBB this year Eid & 8 months after release of PRDP.

    So its 1000% sure that Sultan will release on Eid2016.

    Now what about Raees.?

    Excel may stay on their plan & make it clash.

    Or they may postpone film by saying they dont want 3rd Srk film in just 7 months short time.

    But one thing is clear that neighter Salman nor Yrf going to steps back so makers of Raees should rethink.

    Spreading false rumors will not change anything.

  • ‘Salman Now The Godfather Of Srk When It Comes To Acting’ Rofl..Seriously These ‘BHAI KE BEHENS’ Has Some Humor :p

    Coming To The Article, I Think A Clash Won’t Be Good for Both ! Doesn’t Matter Which film Will Perform Better But At The End Of Its Run None Of These Films Will Be Able To Break Records !!

  • @ tiger the real…. what king is not in news ??? I think stay away from news is far better than to stay in news by some rediculse thing like support a terrorist and play with emotion of innocent people it’s show insecurity

    some fake PR stunt by your star

    1- profit of BB movie will donate to farmers only for news no one confirm it

    2- now today on more news belong to darriyadil bhaai that study expenses and other expenses of child artist harshali will be bear by bhaai this is also not confirmed

    3- even everybody not welcome back2 was distribute by same banner Eros who is distributing BB but after knowing this fact bhaai tweet back off … hero realised same date but after making news what happened suddenly bhaai back off and postponed the date it is same like suddenly announcing realised date of sultan just for stay in news now same thing going to happened back off.. haha mark my word

    4- back to back organised preview show interesting one for saif, one for famaily, one for frnds and finally one for aamir ha one thing I forgot one for spcl fans sorry u miss that but if he want than all screening can be organised together but for more news more screening were held

    you can’t Dennies that bcoz even salman admit in aap ki adalat that Katrina short skirt matter was not a biggest issue it our PR who did that for publicity of movie and look this matter was still going on

    I don’t want to say anything bad about bhaai even I like him but due to some foolish fan like you it necessary to show the truth

  • After being put into the sharpshooter by Sultan I predict Baadshah Rice Smuggler will submit after 1 or 2 days…!

  • One is a movie about a sportsman portrayed by a super fit strong Salman Khan n other is a movie about a bhojpori bootlegger selling rice played by a drunken spectator from Wankhede…!

    Clearly audiences will want to see the fit wrestler knock 10 bells out of the drunk next EID…!

  • If this was a boxing match then the real clash will be between Ritesh n Farhan to see who would throw in the white towel FIRST before the ring of the first bell or will Gauri beat them both to it thus saving her drunk hubbys career for alittle while longer….?

  • Excel heads Ritesh n Farhan are smart businessmen as they proved by minimising bangistans losses by postponing it. They will do the same again next Eid mark my words…!

  • @Mohit . wtf! It’s an ultimate insult to a immortal cricketing legend & God of cricket Sachin that u r comparing him to a person as shabby, dubious & cheap in character as srk , what sachin has achieved in his life both as a person & as a performer ur nautanki item Queen can’t even achieve those in his wildest dreams, don’t disrespect Sachin so much , if u want to compare srk better compare him with the likes of Ricky ponting as both of them are similar in terms of personality, character & success, both very highly overrated & over credited, anyway I don’t like both of them.

    I would like to equate salman with the legendary sir Viv Richards , both of them were the greatest flamboyant entertainers of their eras in their respective fields , they had that natural aura , unique style, inimitable swagger , unmatchable physical presence & charm , absolutely loved by the masses but equally feared by their opponents, on their day they would perform like no other.

    Aamir khan can only be compared to the greatest all rounder of all time sir Gary sobers because aamir has proved that not only he is a great actor but he is also a very good director, producer, presenter , screen writer & much more, indeed one of the best in whatever he does!

  • hello srk fool fans .use your brain.if its clash between dilwale and sultan than oviously srk has upper hand but here expecting to win a clash against salman from a disaster director like Rahul dholakia is fooling oneself and nothing else.

  • @mohit

    You would be doing great injustice to even someone like Balaji or Dinda if you compared them with Queen but you decided to commit the biggest act of blasphemy EVER by comparing God Sachin with some drunken crowd trouble maker from Wankhede…!
