Ranbir Kapoor bows out of Christmas race for Shah Rukh Khan, but Bhansali stays

It’s Shah Rukh Khan V/s Sanjay Leela Bhansali this Christmas. Rohit Shetty‘s yet untitled film featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon and probably Kajol (she hasn’t signed the contract yet) is all set for a December 23 clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Bajirao Mastani

The last time SLB and SRK had clashed at the box office was in Diwali 2007 when Bhansali’s Saawariya released alongside SRK’s Om Shanti Om. Ugly words were exchanged between the two parties during the release.

It looks like the impending clash between Bajirao Mastani and Shah Rukh’s untitled film may again tear apart the recently renewed SRK-SLB dosti.

Says a source, “The two had lately rediscovered their equation from the Devdas days. Shah Rukh was at Sanjay’s Padma Shri party. Sanjay had no idea of Shah Rukh’s plans to release his film suddenly on the same Friday as Bajirao Mastani.”

The source says Bajirao Mastani will stick to its December 25 release in spite of SRK’s film.

But Sajid Nadiadwala has wisely decided to pull out his prestigious Tamasha from the Christmas slot.

Tamasha will now release sometime in March 2016.

Says a source close to Nadiadwala, “There is no sense in this kind of clash. One or the other film is bound to suffer. Our film Tamasha is delicate, sensitive, gentle and thoughtful. Sajid doesn’t want to put it up against a SRK-Shetty rabble-rouser. We don’t know about Bhansali. But we’re out of there.”
