Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Brahmastra’ to clash with Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg 3’?
The year 2018 can be marked as the year of clashes that were averted at the last moment all thanks to Akshay Kumar shuffling the release date of ‘Padman’ and averting the clash with ‘Padmaavat’. We hope this trend continues in 2019 too as rumours abound that the Titans of Bollywood: Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, are apparently all set to take on each other at the box-office with their respective films.
It so happens that Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Brahmastra’ is slated to release on August 15, 2019. It is now being rumoured that Salman Khan starrer ‘Dabangg 3’ too might release on the same date.
As per sources, “‘Dabangg 3’ was earlier rumoured to clash with Shah Rukh Khan‘s ‘Zero’ and Ranveer Singh‘s ‘Simmba’. But now the third instalment of the much loved Dabangg franchise will go on floors by the end of this year. The reason for the delay is Salman Khan’s busy schedule coupled with fighting the court case. Therefore ‘Dabangg 3’, after ‘Race 3’ and ‘Bharat’ had to be moved ahead.”
Sources added, “Salman’s schedule is very tight right now. He needs some time off to concentrate on how to handle the court case and needs a breather in between his films for the promotions as well. This means Dabangg 3 will have to look at the Independence Day weekend because that’s one better slot available. That would, however, imply the film will clash with Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra,” says a trade expert.(Also Read: EXCLUSIVE: Salman Khan finally spills the beans on marriage!)
On the work front, Ranbir is awaiting the release of ‘Sanju’ that is a biopic on popular actor Sanjay Dutt. Salman on the other hand is gearing for the release of ‘Race 3’. He will next start work on ‘Bharat’.
