Salman Khan may be busy promoting "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", but his next project has picked up steam already.

The makers have put out a first-look/ teaser of sorts confirming the release date, which is Eid 2016. While it doesn't say much about the actor's look in the film, the minute-long clip has everyone's attention.

However, what's interesting to note here is Shah Rukh Khan and Salman might have a box office face-off in the coming year as Rahul Dholakia's "Raees" has also been blocked for Eid 2016. Earlier, it was being said Yash Raj Films would reschedule "Sultan" release date, but now it's a sure-shot clash.

This YRF production will see Salman sport a lean avatar, for which he has been working hard. On strict diet and workout regime, the suave actor will cut down on the bulkiness after long.

Meanwhile, there have been conjectures about the film's female lead. While Kangana Ranaut opted out as she had given her dates to Vishal Bhardwaj for "Rangoon", Deepika Padukone too has turned down the offer as has reportedly signed  "Dhoom 3" director Vijay Krishna Acharya's project opposite Hrithik Roshan.  It is now being said that the role might go to Priyanka Chopra.
