Although there is much talk about ac­tors Shah Rukh Khan and Sal­man Khan’s films clash­ing at the box of­fice next Eid, SRK is hardly fazed, and in­sists that there is no clash.

“There is no is­sue... Let them also re­lease. It’s very sim­ple: their dis­tri­bu­tion and pro­duc­tion of­fices feel their film should re­lease on Eid, while my dis­tri­bu­tion of­fice feels that ours is de­signed for Eid. So, we both have de­cided [on the same date], but there’s no clash the way it’s be­ing made out to be.”

In fact, this is not the first time his film will re­lease with another film. For in­stance, Jab Tak Hai Jaan clashed with Ajay Devgn-star­rer Son of Sar­dar in 2012. “Films will come and go. But hon­estly, it’s for­tu­nate that when­ever my film has re­leased with another one, we have, by God’s grace, been safe ev­ery time. It doesn’t make me pompous when I say that my film has done well,” says SRK.

The 49 year-old goes on to ex­plain why it’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to have an ex­clu­sive week­end for a film. “There’s a sim­ple logic

— there are 300 films and 52 Fri­days (in a year). There are go­ing to be [al­most] six films re­leas­ing on the same day. Some­times, it hap­pens to be mine. The idea is to do our best and wish the other per­son also the very best.”
