The ‘Bhaigiri’ between friends again Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan continues, with the latest news of the teaser of Salman Khan’s film Sultan to be attached to SRK’s FAN that releases this April in theatres! Well, what is so special about it, you would ask. Haven’t they been promoting each other’s films for a while now? Here’s why we think this instance is special. Shah Rukh Khan‘s FAN releases on April 15, 2016, and it’s heartening to see him allowing the showcase of Sultan‘s teaser in his film, considering the fact that the two superstars have a big clash coming up in July 2016! It is in July when Salman’s Sultan would compete with SRK’s film Raees during the Eid weekend. And even then, Shah Rukh is sporting enough to release the teaser of the film with FAN knowing that Sultan could very well dent the prospects of Raees at the box office in India!Also Read - Idhar Ki Baatein, Udhar Ki Baatein...Kisiko Kuch Nahi Bolte: Juhi Chawla Reveals How Shah Rukh Khan Backtracks On His Word In KKR Team Meetings | WATCH VIDEO

Now, that’s what we call true friendship!

Produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan has Salman Khan playing a wrestler, and is different from the earlier movies he has starred in. In Sultan, even the heroine – Anushka Sharma – is a wrestler. The film could be a game-changer.
Raees shows Shah Rukh Khan as a bootlegger and is apparently based on a real-life gangster in Gujarat. The film is directed by Rahul Dholakia and co-produced by SRK and Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainments with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. The film marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.
So, both Sultan and Raees have their novelty value. Let’s see who wins this Eid at the box office – Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan! Meanwhile, let’s not forget FAN – the movie the Sultan teaser will be showcased with!
