To prevent box office clash, Brahmastra to release a week after Dabangg 3

The biggest clash of 2019 has been thwarted and we say this because earlier there were speculations that Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 would clash at the box office with Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra. But according to the latest reports, the clash has been prevented.

Earlier in the day, Salman Khan took to social media to declare that Dabangg 3 will hit the screens on December 20, 2019.

But now according to a report, the makers of Brahmastra have decided to shun box office clash with Salman Khan and therefore, they will release the film a week later i.e. on December 27, 2019 which happens to be Bhai’s birthday.

There will be no clash between Dabangg 3 and Brahmastra, but Dabangg 3 will have to give way to Brahmastra a week later and lose screen counts.

Just like last year, when Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero released a week prior to Rohit Shetty’s Simmba and while Zero failed at the box office, Simmba came out with flying colors.

It will be interesting to see how will Christmas fare for the box office and Bollywood, given two of the most anticipated films will be hitting the theatre this Christmas.

Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra is the first part of the trilogy of films starring Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in lead roles and a few weeks back, the makers of Brahmastra had unveiled the logo of the film in Haridwar.

Talking about Dabangg 3, the first schedule of the film has been wrapped up in Maheshwar and the film stars Salman Khan and his Rajjo aka Sonakshi Sinha in lead roles. Dabangg 3 is directed by Prabhudeva and the film will also see Arbaaz Khan back in the role of Makkhi.
