Salman aims to release Sohail’s film on Eid next year

Salman Khan More Pics

Sohail Khan’s Sher Khan is on hold. However, he and his brother Salman Khan, will start their new film (not known whether it is the remake of the south film Brindavanam for which they have acquired the rights, or something totally new) on January 20, 2013.

Says a trade source, “The target is simple. Salman and Sohail are trying to bring their new film out in the first 10 days of August in time for Ramzan Eid.”

Everyone knows that Eid and Salman have become synonymous with each other. His success ratio around this festival has been: Wanted (2009), Dabangg (2010), Bodyguard (2011), Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Sohail Khan’s next film (2013).

Ekta Kapoor has already announced that her Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Again with Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha will release on Eid next year. If both films come, guess there will be a tightly contested box office match here.

Meanwhile, there is also trade talk that Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty will target bringing Chennai Express exactly 15 days before Eid. This date is lucky for Rohit because in the past two years he has brought Singham (2011) and Bol Bachchan (2012) in the same period and both films have worked for him.

A source adds, “There was talk of SRK also wanting to target Ramzan Eid for his release. However since it is Salman, who seems to have proprietorial rights over Ramzan Eid, SRK was advised that it would be prudent if he doesn’t choose Salman’s date.”

As of now the OUATIM sequel and Chennai Express are being shot at breakneck speed; while Salman and Sohail have just begun working on their script. Like a trade analyst said, “Eid next year could well turn out to be like Diwali this year. There will be additional fireworks if more than one superstar’s film comes on the same date.”

      did the clash between golmaal3 nd action replayy settle matters once and for all.anyways even i want this clash to happen.it would be fantastic if this were true.however i dont think this is possible.salman can start shooting only in mid january after dabangg2 release and his bday nd new yr celebrations.eid is on 8th aug.in 7 monts shooting + post production wont be over.even the title and lead heroine havent been decided.but i can only hope that this clash happens

      • TheRisingStar said:

        What do you mean g3 and AR matter??? Akshay- The megastar has been in TOP 2 actors for long time. Ajay is way behind. You also know where Akshay stands today giving tough competition to sallu.

          • TheRisingStar said:

            Check the top ten films and you will see only Akki is performing better than aamir and srk. You can never change the fact that Akshay is the ALL INDIA hero. He has no less popularity than sallu chotu taklu

          • TheRisingStar said:

            Don’t worry 2012 belongs to only Akshay the Mega Star. Not dwarfs(aamir and sallu) who are much ahead than Akki according to YOU only!!! Wake up!!!

          • sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT said:

            hahaha top 10 movies?
            name any akki movie bigger than salman’s MPK, HAHK, Dabangg, ETT.

      • ank_16n said:

        Its the same way
        Kyun ki vs Garam Masala
        or may be
        MAMK vs Blue

        Settle the matter….

        Yaar bolne se phele soch liya karo…..
        ki agar tumhare pass 1 point hai toh humaare pass 2 …..

  1. ank_16n said:

    lets see bt 1st day of d2 would be two times of k786 ye hai joker k aukaat

  8. ranjit said:

    mods dont blame me for this
    haha impotent lallus and their impotent khan trying to come against akki again…. history will repeat once again :) ………….. eagerly waiting ………

    before taking any step against me see this “haha stupid jokerz….n their joker kumar”……

    • TheRisingStar said:

      sallu me dum nahi ki woh saal me 4 film kar paaye. Dum chahiye bed se uthne ke liye aur energy to be fit! Body banaane se kaam nahi ho jaata.

  9. Ek tha dugglale said:

    n am just using his movie to represent him like they use dabangg khan n badhshah khan
    meri kya galti if that b grade actor have done a movie named joker…
    N mods plz take a look at this guy ranjit’s comment hez using abusive words

    joker is nt a abusive word by any angle..u looser

    • TheRisingStar said:

      tu to jalke khaakh hi ho gaya hai iss saal. Very happy. It proves that sallu is still nothing in front of Akshay!!! woooo

  10. danish said:

    @mods – bata to sahi hai. if salman can be called dabangg, srk can be called badshah, ajay can be called sardar then akshay can definitely be called joker.

    but no one has ever starred in the title role of a film called impotent so its ranjit who is abusing, not ek tha duggale.

      • danish said:

        @ankita beti – jab aapko ankita beti kehne se aapki mardangi par koi fark nahin pada to salman ki mardangi pe kya fark padega. u r welcome to call him biwi no 1. as it is he looked much prettier than ms ‘knitbrow’ karisma kapoor in the film.

  11. ranjit said:

    dugglae jab mukabla amne samne hona hi hai toh itni jaldi kya hai?

    Mai toh Eid tak jinda rahunga and will wait for score for 3-0
    and i wish tu bh jina rahe…….
    And mods are smart enough to understand which is abusive or not so juat stop using abusive languages you monkey………..

    • TheRisingStar said:

      Very good! I have never seen the biggest jealous fans like sallu fans. I can understand they have never seen such success for sallu but they cant digest the fact that Akshay is doing better and giving more hits than sallu and also tougg competition to him. Ab sab log to Amitabh bachhan nahi ban sakte. Akshay jaroor banega!!!

  12. ranjit said:

    Danish bhaiya fudakte raho……… :P

    Mods i am sorry for my mistake but please give a warning to all sallu fan’s not to provoke us …….

  13. ranjit said:

    I will buy posting right on next Eid and will post my my first post on NG……..

    “3-0″ ……………… OMG i can’t wait for that day…………..
    And mera khwab khwab nahi rahega it will come true for sure :) :D

  14. Ek tha dugglale said:

    thnx danish bhai
    n ranjitey
    dude eid tak toh wait kar he lenge…bt wht abt k786 vs dabangg2 kyu dar gya kya…..chal i make it simple for you
    lets compare k786 lifetime ww gross with dabangg2 1st week domestic nett. Phir dkhte hai kaun jeet ta hai
    ??hai dum ??

    • TheRisingStar said:

      lets compare no. of Hits in 2012 and total number of hits till now. Also copare bodyguar, dabangg and ett success which were having atleast 3 open weeks with “festival” with ROWDY BAAP of sallu RATHORE”, and HOUSEFULL BLOCKBUSTER HIT!!! Akshay is a self-made actor aur sallu ki koi aukaat nahi ki Akshay jaisa respect paa sake…ab apni izzat pyaari hai to soja..akshay se muqabala mat kat charo aur se haarega!!!

  15. ranjit said:

    are bhai kya yanha pe para hai……….
    it can’t solve the problem coz
    1.agar mai jit gaya toh tu bolega cricket matches and blah blah reason dega
    2.agar tu jeet gaya toh mai holidays and talaash ki competition ka reason dunga…..

    forget this/……..lets focus on Eid………. we both have no excuses :D :)

  16. dr.nick said:

    chill guys,salmans film cant come on eid even if he wanted.he has messed up the shooting schedules.all of next month he has to promote dabangg 2 and shoot for bigg boss.then there will be his bday nd new year celebrations.abhi tak na title decided hai na lead heroine.shooting can start earliest by mid jan if sohail hurries with pre production.for movie to release on eid shooting has to end till mid june with 1 nd half month for promotion + post production.next year only 1 film of salman will release which will come on christmas which might clash with either peekay or happy new year.

  17. danish said:

    @the risisng star – and by giving same or lesser hits how has akshay been in top 2 but not ajay? pray tell me is there some sarkaari gazette that annoumces top 2/3/4/5 or its decided by hits?

    after salman@1 sharukh @ 2 hrithik @3 and aamir @4 akshay has been tied up with ajay for no 5 for the last 20 years. and in teh 1st 10 years (since u guys so love to break it up into decades) he was tied with sunil-ajay-akshay thru the 90s.

    • TheRisingStar said:

      hahaha kya banda hai tu…Akshay has been in top three even today Ajay is out of top 5. And sallu is no.1 but for limited time now. I accept Akshay at no.2 as per the trade and experts data. Not yours.

  18. rockie_Dabhangg2 said:

    @Gorilla: “This is a cheap publicity stunt…Salman should avoid these gimmicks to retain his recently earned short term respectability for some more time.”

    Kya uncle comedy karta hai kya??

    recently earned short term respectability –
    MPK – 1989
    ETT – 2012

    I didnt know recently means before 23 years. lolzz… :P

  19. rockie_Dabhangg2 said:

    I think the stage is set. Next month we have both these movies releasing K786 and Dabangg2.

    Khiladi 786 –
    Its the biggest franchisee as claimed by the makers.
    It has competition from Talaash, I don’t think Talaash is any competition as its a plex only film and in second week how much will it collect anyways.

    Dabangg2 – Its part 2 of ATBB Dabangg.
    It has competition from India – Pakistan series.

  20. TheRisingStar said:

    HF2
    RR
    OMG
    Khiladi

    Akshay ne atbb nahi diya to fir 35cr opening ke baad bhi 2009 ka 3idiots ko cross nahi kar paaya…kya hai ye sallu. 186 pe fusss

  21. TheRisingStar said:

    RR vs ett

    Compare these:

    1. No. of screens for both films
    2. Festival/Holidays
    3. 5-6 back to back releases for RR./ ett two open weeks
    4. sallus in pick of career/akshay’s not so good run at that point of time. Only HF2
    5. Action masala after all stars gave theirs, like singham, dabangg, bg, ghajini etc. ands still managed to become BLOCKBUSTER
    6. RR was remade in five languages already and also telecasting on TV channels thousand times before the release
    6. RR has beaten ett on most watched film on TV
    7. NO BODY DOUBLE. The biggest point for me to be a PROUD Akshay fan. sallu can’t even jump from stool and run fast like akki and also cant do a systematic action like a real Action KUMAR!!!!

    Aukaat ab samaj aani chaiye sallu fans…

    • rockie_Dabhangg2 said:

      Also for ETT add first 5 days in the holy month of ramadan when most of the muslim’s do not watch movies. Nobody dares to release movies in ramadan.

      ETT had first 5 days which are the most important days in the month of ramadan.

      Still beat the opening record by margin of 50%.
      Agnipath was 21cr, ETT 32cr.

      —-

    • dr.nick said:

      when comparing two movies the only thing that matters is box office collections.and the “FACT” is RR fell short of ETT by 55cr nett.case closed.stop giving sissy excuses.

  22. TheRisingStar said:

    Get ready for 2013 now. Akshay has WON in 2012 and now 2013 will be BIGGER and BETTER! All three films S26, OUTIMA and THUPPAKI ate different films. I am proud that Akshay is doing different kind of films and not like sallu who’s playing safe!!!

    btw BOSS is a bonus blockbuster.

  23. rockie_Dabangg2 said:

    Read it elsewhere ….. but makes lot of sense ….

    The difference between first 25 to 50 crores is not the same as between 125 – 150 and 175- 200.

    After 100cr already pocketed …. every crore that movie earns is much more valuable and difficult to earn.

  24. Ank_dabangg2 said:

    Before 2007 eid was just like rakshabandhan for bollywood..so simply its salman who made this spot popular..aur clash hoga bhi toh ekta ko sirf chullu bhar screens milenge.

  25. rafee said:

    @MODS this is more than five times when ranjit has repeated words like Impotent in his comments. That day also he did. If members like aryan and others were banned for same then Kindly take the necessary action against him also.

    bt i dnt want mods to ban you guyz….dabangg2 ke time baat krna jab week 1 of d2 would be equal toh lyftime of b-grade k786 haha

  28. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT said:

    agar Akki ko hrithik se or Sallu ko srk se compare karna hai toh bolo mein ready hoon… But I m not ready to compare cat (Akki) with a tiger (Sallu).
    Akki kanjush hai. Paise k liye works every day and night… Agar real superstar ho toh kum movies Karo saan se raho. Aare bhaiya itna kast kisliye? Do less movies. Who knows u could get a highest grosser of a year by mistake.

  29. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT said:

    Sallu fans lets donate mpk, hahk or dabangg to Akki. At least Akki will have one atbb and one highest grosser of a year.only donating 2 of these movies will make Akki comparable to Sallu

    • ank_16n said:

      sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT—

      thnx for the donation ….
      Here is our return gift
      SIK, Welcome , phir hera pheri , Bhul bhoolayiya and Bhagam bhag inn sab ke Collections for Salman’s 2004 to 2008 Disasters period in Bollywood.!!

      • sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT said:

        sallu ki 4 years thik karne se kya hoga? yeha toh so called “Megastar” hai jo puri life struggle kar raha hai. inorder to give highest grosser of a year.
        Plus sallu already has No entry (biggest movie of 2005)
        …HAHA cheers. even in his drought period sallu ne akki ko piche chod diya by giving years highest grosser which akki has never got.

    Top_Shot- “I am copy pasting these comments for future reference…. maja aayega…”

    Couldn’t you just save the link, instead of all comments? I mean, it will cost you lesser time I guess. No? :)

      • ank_16n said:

        TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2—

        It doesn’t matter even if u Save these comments as
        No one will response on them they would again start Recalling past movies or Will say future mein dekhna agli movie sab record todh degi….
        whether Akshay fans are proved right or Salman Fans are proved Right…

        That’s why they are called fans…!!!

  31. FS said:

    Kal salman diwali pe hit dena shuru kardega to akshay fans kahenge diwali chodke kisi aur date pe release karke dikhao? Ab dabang2 friday release ho rahi hai per record banega to kahenge akshay next year tod dega :) is saal kya usko periods hain?

  32. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT said:

    FS. We talk about facts. Akki fans talk about “would” “could” “should” “can” “ifs and buts”
    Example. Salman has broken records.
    Akki can break records if release movie in holiday

  33. rockie_Dabangg2 said:

    I think next year Akki is releasing his movie on Eid holiday, that should clear the perception … kaun kitne paani mei hai.

    Now don’t say that Satyagrah is releasing in next week. I am talking ONLY about opening day record.

    Opening day records that Ouatim2 is chasing,
    20cr – BG
    21cr – Agneepath
    32cr – ETT

    Dabangg2 opening day might get added in that list.
    So 32cr is the minimum expected collection for Ouatim2 on its opening day… MINIMUM.
