Is this the real reason why Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ and Rajinikanth’s ‘Kabali’ won’t clash at the box office?

Salman Khan’s “Sultan” and Rajinikanth’s “Kabali” arriving on the same day would have been the clash of the decade. Rumour has it, though, that the clash has been avoided.

Team “Kabali” were eyeing to release the film on July 7, but now they have moved it up a week ahead. A source told Bollywood Hungama Salman’s film will be dubbed in Tamil and Telegu, which is why the release date of the South Superstar’s crime-drama has been rescheduled.

“‘Kabali’ was locked in for July 7, as an Eid release alongside ‘Sultan.’ The Kabali team felt Sultan cannot affect the box-office collections of Rajni Sir’s film in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh,” an insider elaborated.

Interestingly, both films are genres apart and have interesting premises, which means a different set of takers.

This time, Salman will ditch the usual song-dance routine to play Haryana-based wrestler Sultan Ali Khan. Playing his love interest Arfa is Anushka Sharma. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film has Randeep Hooda and Amit Sadh in key roles.
Rajinikanth, meanwhile, will be seen essaying the role of an ageing gangster living out of Chennai’s Mylapore area. Pa Ranjith has helmed “Kabali,” which has Radhika Apte playing an important character.

“Kabali” has raced ahead of “Sultan” in YouTube hits on respective teasers. While Salman’s “dhobi pachhaad” act has garnered 17.2 million hits in a month’s time, “Kabali” is inching close towards the 18-million mark after just two weeks of its release.
“Kabali” is reportedly the most-watched Indian film teaser on YouTube.

Ramesh Taurani gave ‘Sultan’ to Salman, without a penny

Salman Khan’s next ‘Sultan’ is quite talked-about, as the actor is playing a Haryanvi wrestler in the film and has been working quite hard to achieve the look and also pick up traits that of a wrsetler. However, had it not been for producer Ramesh Taurani , the film would have never found its apt title. It is said that the producer held the rights for the title ‘Sultan’; Aditya Chopra set out to make this film with Salman and Anushka Sharma, and wished to keep the same title.

Taurani and Salman’s relationship go way back, he has worked with the actor when he had just started out on Bollywood. The Khans are like family to him, and hence when Salman requested him for the title, Taurani simply gave it away without hesitating. In fact, even when Aditya Chopra learnt about it, he called Taurani as he wished to compensate for the same, but he refused to accept anything. Knowing his relationship with Salman, Taurani gave away the title to Adi’s production house without charging a single penny.

Irrfan Khan’s Madaari based on real life incident

Nishikant Kamat’s directorial venture Madaari stars Irrfan Khan as a man, who seeks non-legal redress for a Metro bridge that comes crashing down in a busy part of Mumbai.

Kamat admits that the film is based on the collapse of an under-construction Metro bridge in Andheri, in the western suburb of Mumbai, which happened on September 4, 2012.

But the filmmaker says the real-life accident was just the triggering point for the plot.

Madaari is about an under-construction Metro bridge, which fell a couple of years back in Andheri, Mumbai. The incident is just a backdrop. My film is plotted around the repercussions of this incident,” he says.

“If you recollect my 2008 filmMumbai Meri Jaan, that was also based on the backdrop of a tragic catastrophe: the Mumbai train bombings on July 11, 2006.

“But the film was about human emotions. As usual, my attempt is to explore the complexities created by an unfortunate event,” says the National award winning director.

The director, whose last release was Rocky Handsome, has made films like Dombivli Fast andLai Bhaari in Marathi earlier, as well as the Hindi version of Drishyam.

Madaari will release on June 10.
