The years 2015 & 2016 are going to be the years of clashes. 2015 Christmas will see Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali clash with Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani respectively. Later next year Eid, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan will clash with their Raees and Sultan respectively.
Now we hear of another unintentional yest big clash to happen, i.e. Hero Vs. Welcome Back. This despite Salman announcing the date on Twitter with the words “Back Off”.
Salman Khan seems to be very pissed off with Anees Bazmee and feels that he should have refrained from declaring the same date for his film.
However, as per sources, the Welcome Back director said, “We had no idea about Salman Bhai’s plans. After we heard that Vikas Bahl’s Shaandaar was being postponed, we quickly moved in. We had been on the lookout for a window for our film. We checked to see if any other film was moving into the vacated September 4 slot. We we were not aware of Salman Bhai’s plans until we saw his tweet announcing Hero.”
Anees further added, “Hero and Welcome Back are very different films. I feel there is room for both.”
Both the films’ release have been postponed at least five times in the last six months. We doubt if any of the two will “Back Off”.
