Anushka Sharma in Sultan? Raees vs Sultan
A big news is revolving in the industry that Anushka Sharma has been approached and signed for Yash Raj’s “Sultan”. It will be an edge for the film over its rival “Raees”.
As per now both the films are due on Eid 2016 but as per critics and trade analysts it is not a rational move for both the banners as there are huge stakes on both the films. Both the films are commercial entertainers as one being based on Gujarati don and other being based on a boxer Sultan Ali Khan.
According to both film’s producers and directors these films have good content, emotional appeal and not a typical masala entertainer. If we compare the pre buzz then both films have gained huge appreciations from their trailers and teasers.
After inclusion of Anushka sharma, Sultan has become more bigger and more better. She is carrying a huge success of PK on her back and now working with one more Khan of the industry will be beneficial for both the actress and the film. Raees cast includes SRK, Mahira Khan and Nawazzuddin Siddiqui while Sultan has Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma and Randeep Hooda. After the success of Dilwale in international market despite the clash and weak content, one thing is clear that SRK is the ultimate Baadshah of overseas while no one will argue that Salman Khan rules domestic market.
This mother of all clashes will not only hurt the collections of both the films but it will also hurt the consistency of both the leading actors. If we consider both the film releases on Eid 2016 without clashing with each other then both the films have huge chances of getting an opening of 35 crores plus. If we consider both the films clashing on the same day then as per last 6 years records Salman Khan will initially take the lead but then everything will depend on word of mouth among audiences. Considering the result of BM vs. Dilwale clash, its highly recommended that any one the film must shift their release to a later date.
