The impending "Sultan"-"Raees" clash is an untold acid test of sorts for both Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan as it will decide who has a stronger hold on the box office.
But they are professionals and so going for the head-to-head battle makes sense to them.
Talking about it, the "Dilwale" actor said they could either sit and talk about how this can be stopped or simply go ahead with it.
"Yeah, I guess we (Raees) could shift. But I don't know the readiness of Sultan. Raees will be ready in January, in like 20 days. Plus, they all are friends – Adi (Aditya Chopra), Salman (Khan), Ali (Abbas Zafar), I know them all. So, if mutually we all can figure out a date where one of us goes a week up or down, we might! Or we might not," he told Bollywood Life.
The actor strongly believes two films can be released on a festive weekend adding that the business may get divided but eventually everything settles down.
"Again I feel both the film are different genres and so they might not be too difficult to handle on a good weekend like the December 25, Diwali or Eid – they are good weekends. They are good cinema tickets, so you can put in two films, of course the business gets divided, but it kind of comes back to normalcy," he said.
This is good news for those who have been losing sleep over the films eating into each other's businesses.
In other news, Salman and SRK's movies went for a box office war in 2006 and the latter's "Don" emerged as winner, whereas "Jaan-e-mann" performed poorly.
