The clashes are becoming more and more frequent in our industry as the holiday dates are looking highly lucrative for business. Just recently, the news of Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘The Ring‘ getting clashed with Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha on 11th August made big buzz in film community and now we have one more clash.
Salman Khan’s Tubelight is one of the biggest films of 2017 and the fans are getting impatient to see even one look of their favorite superstar. Tubelight is releasing this Eid, on 23rd June. South Superstar Mahesh Babu’s yet untitled film is also releasing on the same date.
While it might not be a complete clash as the audience for both the films is different. But, Mahesh Babu is big star in South and the film is directed by A. R. Murugadoss so this film might eat a significant business of Tubelight in South.
When it comes to box office business, even a smaller obstruction can hinder big profits of the film. Salman has a massive fan following in India across all the corners so it will be interesting to see how it fares in south with Mahesh Babu’s films clashing.
Tubelight’s first look will be out any day now. The trailer is expected to be out in the first week of May. This is the 3rd time Salman and Kabir Khan are collaborating after Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film is based on 1962’s Indo-Sino war and it also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, Sohail Khan and Matin Rey Tangu.
