We have earlier reported you that Kabir Khan’s next film starring Salman Khan is going to clash with AR Murugadoss’s SPYder starring Superstar Mahesh Babu. Now, yet another actor’s movie is all set to release with Salman’s movie on this Eid. Salman Khan’s old friend Sunny Deol’s Bhaiyyaji Superhit is going to release on the same date with the superstar’s movie. There is no doubt in that Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars of India and all his previous Eid releases were blockbusters, but the clash is definitely going to impact the business of superstar’s movie. Salman Khan has a bumper fan following and Eid is a festival, which is known for the films of the actor.

Neeraj Pathak’s action comedy Bhaiyyaji Superhit, which has been in the making for the last six years, is finally ready to release. The producer of the film Mahindra Dhariwal is confident of getting a good opening even if Salman’s movie is releasing with them. They believe that it’s a good movie and a festive occasion can easily accommodate two movies. According to the Deccan Chronicle, the producer, Mahindra Dhariwal has decided to release Bhaiyyaji Superstar starring Sunny Deol on the same date (25 June). The Producer Dhariwal quoted Mid-Day that they know that Salman Khan is a superstar, but they are confident about their film. “We are in talks with distributors, who have warned us about Salman’s Tubelight. It’s a fact that he is a superstar, but we are too confident of our film and so, it doesn’t matter whoever comes alongside us. In the past, we have had many instances when two hit screens and both did well. Besides, we are presenting Sunny in a new avatar. He has a double role in the film and I am sure his fans will love him,” said Dhariwal.
It looks like that Dhariwal is probably giving the example of this republic day clash between Rahul Dholakia’s Raees starring Shahrukh Khan and Sanjay Gupta’s Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan, which did tremendously well at the box office and touched the 100 crore club too. But the Producer has to understand that neither Bhaiyyaji Superhit is a big movie nor Sunny Deol is a superstar like Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh, Akshay or Hrithik so it could consequence them in not getting proper screens and ultimately, it will adversely impact the business of the movie. On the other hand, just like Kaabil, the producer is doubtful that they may not get as screens as Salman’s Tubelight. “The distributors are saying we may not get the desired number of screens, so we are okay with even 2,000 screens. I am not worried at all. When I shared my plan with him (Deol), he said, ‘You are the producer and know best for the film. If you are fine with it, I am too’. I am aware they (Salman and Deol) are good friends, but this clash won’t affect their friendship,” Dhariwal added.
A source said, “Despite all the distributors warning the makers of ‘Bhaiyyaji Superhitt’ not to release it, as getting screens would be difficult. But, they are confident about the content and hence they are clashing!” It is going to be another big clash of the year. Bhaiyyaji Superstar also stars Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Evelyn Sharma, Shreyas Talpade and Arshad Warsi whereas Kabir Khan’s Tubelight stars Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, Sohail Khan, late actor Om Puri. Shahrukh Khan is also doing a cameo in the Tubelight. We hope that this clash between the two superstars would not affect their friendship.
