“Let Aamir and Salman handle wrestling.. two of them are enough to handle wrestling. Above all I don’t look like a wrestler from any angle. I am a romantic hero and I don’t know wrestling,” said Shah Rukh during a media interaction for Eid celebrations at his residence Mannat.
Salman Khan-starrer “Sultan”, in which the actor essays the role of a wrestler, is already making leaps and bounds in theatres while later this year, Aamir Khan will also be seen in similar role, but in a biopic based on real-life wrestler Mahavir Phogat.
With two of his Khan contemporaries exploring the “wrestling” genre, it could be thought that he would also follow suit but SRK, noted for his romantic and emotional avatar, says he doesn’t believe in any such thing and keep essaying his soft-hearted roles.
Salman’s sports drama “Sultan” and Shahrukh Khan’s dark thriller “Raees” were set to lock horns at the box-office this Eid, but this was averted as the release of “Raees” was pushed to next year after Shah Rukh suffered some injuries.
“When two films release at the same time, we don’t get the big theatrical release we want. Budget of the film suffers if the movie is not releasing on 4,000 screens. One needs to have 8,000 to 10,000 theaters for two movies to release at the same time. I don’t think two big films can released at the same time. Secondly, I suffered some injuries and there are body shot portions I still need to shoot. But otherwise the film is ready,” he said.
The movie is slated to hit the theater on January 26, but unfortunately on that particular day, “Raees” will collide with Hrithik Roshan-starrer “Kaabil”, which kicked off recently.
“We have discussed with Hrithik for ‘Kaabil’, because the movie has just started shooting. So hopefully we will come out on January 26 or 27, 2017,” he added.
“Raees” is directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Gauri Khan, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under their banners Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment. It also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan.
