MUMBAI: YRF's Salman khan-starrer Ek Tha Tiger has been tipped for an Eid release. Going by the penchant of Khan to release his films on the occasion of Eid, it was being rumoured that his other starrer Dabaang 2 would also release on Eid.
But the rumours have been put to rest by the makers of Dabaang 2. The film will now release during Christmas. The reason: Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 are completely different films but releasing two films of Khan on the same day wouldn’t be advisable.
Producer-director Arbaaz Khan feels that crowding the Eid weekend with two Salman releases wouldn't be good.
Meanwhile YRF's other release Ishaqzaade will now release on 11th instead of 18 May. The pre-poning of the release is due to the postponing of Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Ferrari ki Sawaari that was to release on 11 May but was later postponed.
YRF confirmed, "With Ferrari ki Sawaari moving to a later date and the IPL crunch matches kicking in from 18 May, this shift will give Ishaqzaade a better window for release."
This means that Ishaqzaade will clash with the Kareena Kapoor-starrer Dangerous Ishq that also releases on 11 May.
