Mumbai: It seems this year too will be known as the year of clashes, after Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Sooryavanshi with Rohit Shetty is set to release on Christmas this year.
“Rohit and Akshay have already confirmed that they will be doing a film together which is likely to be another cop drama. The film will go on floor soon and the makers are planning to release it on Christmas this year. Incidentally, Salman has also locked this date for Dabangg 3 and Karan Johar has booked this date for Brahmastra,” says a source.
Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt-starrer Brahmastra which is being directed by Ayan Mukerji, is currently in production. It was to release on Independence Day but has been pushed ahead. On the other hand, Dabangg 3 is expected to go on floor after Salman wraps up Bharat.
Salman and Ranbir are known not to be friends as Katrina Kaif started dating Ranbir soon after she parted ways with Salman.
Salman, Akshay and Karan were supposed to be working together for Kesari but Salman chose to back out of it after he got to know that Ajay Devgn is making a film on the same subject. Interestingly, since Rohit and Karan’s last film Simmba has been doing well, there is a possibility that Rohit might not want to have a box office clash with Brahmastra.
However, rumour suggests that Brahmastra might be pushed ahead once again but there is no confirmation on it.
