Salman and Shah Rukh Khan are all set to fight it out at the box-office with their respective films Sultan and Raees slated to hit screens on Eid next year.

Produced by Aditya Chopra and written-directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Sultan will commence shooting in November and will release on Eid 2016.

“So Here is finally @BeingSalmanKhan in as SULTAN EID 2016,” Abbas Zafar posted on Twitter. The film’s release date is trending on the micro-blogging site under the hashtag “#SultanEid2016”. Zafar’s Gunday actors - Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor - also took to Twitter to support their director in his big venture.

Ranveer wrote: “Sabse bada Gunda @aliabbaszafar .... sabse badi film http://youtu.be/WbGgqKatP9w #SultanEid2016.”

In Sultan, Salman is reportedly playing a wrestler. The leading lady of Sultan is still a secret. Shah Rukh-starrer Raees, which will see him romancing Pakistani beauty Mahira Khan, is an action-thriller.

Salman and Shah Rukh are back to being friends after their infamous fight in 2008. SRK indicated the thaw in their relationship by launching the first look of Salman’s release Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Aamir Khan.

It is not the first time that the Karan Arjun stars are clashing at the box office. Don and Jaaneman had released on Diwali in 2006. Generally, the Khans, whose films are draws, avoid releasing their films on the same date with Salman preferring Eid, Shah Rukh Diwali and Aamir, Christmas. PTI/IANS
