27 Sep – It will be a battle between two box office giants, as it was reported that both Shah Rukh Khan and Prabhas will have new movies releasing in the Christmas season.
"Dunki", which is the first collaboration between SRK and director Rajkumar Hirani has already been scheduled for release on 22 December, finds that it will now be facing head-to-head with "Salaar", the new movie starring "Baahubali" star, Prabhas.
The news was announced by film business analyst Taran Adarsh, who posted, "The exhibitors have received a mail stating that #Salaar will arrive THIS CHRISTMAS [on 22 Dec 2023... An official announcement by the producers, #HombaleFilms, will be made on Friday [29 Sept 2023]."
Taran added that this will be the second time that Hombale Films has decided to pick the same slot with a SRK movie, following 2018's "Zero" versus "K.G.F: Chapter 1".
Directed by Prashanth Neel, "Salaar" or "Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire" was originally slated to be released in September before it was postponed.
