Salman Khan is all set to lock horns with Ranbir Kapoor at the box office, this October. Rumors are that Salman’s film Mental has been scheduled for an October release, on the same day as that of Ranbir Kapoor’s Besharam.
Now this may be a co-incidence or whatever, but if the news is true, this clash will be a memorable one as Ranbir Kapoor is rumored to be dating Salman’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
Says a source, “It’s after a long hiatus, and schedules and re-schedules that sets have been erected in Dubai for Mental. It isn’t going to be easy for Salman to release the film on Eid this year. Rather than hurry up, Salman and Sohail have decided to release the film in October, which too has long weekends. It’s tentatively scheduled for an October 2 release.”
Earlier, we had reported that Salman might clash with Shahrukh on Eid but now, according to rumors, Salman will clash with Ranbir Kapoor.
A source close to the actor says, “Salman intends to kill two birds with one stone, as it is well known that Salman and Abhinav can’t see eye to eye after Abhinav decided to leave Dabangg 2 in spite of the success of Dabangg. Salman also wants to take on Ranbir now and is not bothered by the fact that his arch enemy Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express might release on Eid.”
This will be the first time in a long time that Sallu’s film will not be releasing on Eid. 0123.
