Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to lock horns with ex Salman Khan

2018 will witness clashes of two titans, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ‘Fanney Khan’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Race 3’. Both the films have been scheduled to release on Eid 2018. In real life Aishwarya and Salman Khan avoids crossing paths but in reel life they can avert the clashes.

The clash of Aishwarya’s ‘Fanney Khan’ with Salman’s ‘Race 3’ on Eid, 2018 (June 15) will be a much talked about issue considering Ash and Salman’s past relationship. The duo dated for three long years before ending their relationship in 2002.

A statement released by the producers of Fanney Khan, KriArj Entertainment (Prerna Arora and Arjun N. Kapoor), confirmed the release date of ‘Fanney Khan’, he informed, "We have locked the release date of Fanney Khan on Eid 2018 (June 15). We decided on Eid because the lead character Fanney Khan, played by Anil Kapoor, is a Muslim character and there's no better day than Eid [to release it]."

Talking about Aishwarya and Salman locking horns, a source told mid-day, "It will be an exciting clash, since Aishwarya and Salman's relationship continues to hold the audience's attention, even years after it went kaput. While Salman boasts of tremendous box-office pull, Ash and Anil too have a huge fan following and will draw the audience to the theatres."

Revealing details of Anil and Aishwarya’s reaction to the release date, the source further added, "Arjun N Kapoor, Prernaa Arora, Bhushan Kumar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra met Aishwarya and Anil, who were happy to have a festival release. The team is aware of Race 3 also releasing on Eid, but they are confident of their film.”

Salman Khan has a successful record of his films releasing on Eid and looking into the superstar's blockbusters Eid release, we can conclude the team of 'Fanney Khan' will face tough competition at the box-office.
