From big movies clashing at the box office to trailer releases, the year 2016 is about biggest clashes in Bollywood. "Sultan" and "Raees" clash is touted to be the biggest one of 2016, but before the films' release, the trailer of Salman Khan's film will clash with his one of ex-girlfriend's film's trailer.
The trailer of "Sultan" and the trailer of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's "Sarbjit" will be released on the same day, i.e. April 14. The director of "Sarbjit" took to Twitter to reveal that the trailer will be released April 14, which is the same as Salman's "Sultan."
"Our 4th #SarbjitPoster #ARB @RandeepHooda @RichaChadha_ @Vanita_ok mark this date... trailer releasing on APRIL 14th," Omung Kumar tweeted.
"Sultan" theatrical trailer will be attached to Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "Fan," which is slated to release April 15. However, the trailer will appear on social media platforms a day before its theatrical release. "Sultan" director Ali Abbas Zafar confirmed the news and tweeted a screenshot of the censor board certificate.
"Coming Sooooooon" @SultanTheMovie @BeingSalmanKhan @AnushkaSharma #7daystosultanteaser," Ali Abbas posted on Twitter, along with the screenshot.
The ex-lovers try to avoid each other in real-life, but they will not be able to avoid the face-off April 14 on the screens. Also, it will be interesting to see which movie's trailer will overshadow the other on screen, as both the films have a strong but different storyline.
Aishwarya's "Sarbjit" is a gripping tale of Indian farmer Sarabjit Singh, who was convicted of terrorism by Pakistani court and how his sister Dalbir Kaur fought relentlessly to get him back to India. The film features Aishwarya as Dalbir, Randeep Hooda as Sarabjit and Richa Chadha as his wife. "Sarbjit" is slated to release this May worldwide.
On the other hand, "Sultan" is an action film about wrestler Sultan Ali Khan, played by Salman. The film also features Anushka Sharma as a wrestler, Randeep as Sultan's coach and Amit Sadh. "Sultan" will release this year on Eid along with Shah Rukh's "Raees."
