Director Ali Abbas Zafar's 'Sultan', starring Salman Khan, is set to hit the theatres next year on the eve of Eid. Yash Raj Films released the highly anticipated teaser of 'Sultan' today, the 23rd. The teaser gives an idea about the movie, which is not a run-of-the-mill wrestling movie. It looks unique and promises to deliver a lot of chills and frills. Ali Abbas Zafar has earlier delivered box-office hits like Gunday and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, whereas it is Salman Khan's first movie with Ali Abbas Zafar.

Teaser Review and Hunt for the Lead Actress

The rust filled backdrop gives the 30 second promo of 'Sultan' an edgy look. On the other hand, the voice-over in the teaser makes it clear that the core theme of movie is 'wrestling'. It is based on a hard-hitting wrestling competition. The release date of Eid 2016 is also incorporated within the teaser.

Salman Khan, who will be seen in Bajrangi Bhaijaan on this Eid, will do the avatar of a wrestler for this movie. 'Sultan' is also making news because of its selection for the leading lady. Earlier, it was reported that Bollywood's queen Kangana Ranaut will be the leading lady. On the other hand, Kangana put the rumours to rest by denying her presence in the movie.

Later, it was reported that Parineeti Chopra will play the leading lady opposite Salman Khan, but nothing has been finalized yet. Parineeti Chopra has been away from the limelight after the debacle of 'Kill Dil'. It's yet to be seen if she gives a nod to play the lead.

Clash of the Titans

Earlier this year, Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan started shooting for Rahul Dholakia's upcoming directorial venture 'Raees'.

The team has already completed the first schedule of the Film. On the other hand, Salman Khan is yet to begin shooting for 'Sultan' in November 2015. Dholakia has not confirmed the date of release officially, but rumours say that Shah Rukh and team were eyeing for Eid 2016 release.

The announcement of Yash Raj Films came as a surprise for people in the industry.

Will the clash of two box-office kings be averted? Will 'Raees' and 'Sultan' release on same day? Will Shah Rukh Khan change the release date of 'Raees' to rekindle his friendship with Salman Khan? No confirmations have been made yet. Therefore, we will have to wait to hear any official announcement from the team of 'Raees'.

Final Words

Currently, Salman Khan is busy in promoting his Eid 2015 release Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Kareena Kapoor Khan. On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan is engaged in shooting for his upcoming Christmas 2015 release Dilwale along with the ravishing Kajol in Bulgaria.

We can only hope that the clash of the titans can be averted by reaching a sensible decision. The audience is waiting for 'Raees' and 'Sultan' with full zeal and zest.
