Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan will be clashing at the box office next year on Eid with 'Raees' and 'Sultan', respectively. When asked about this at a recent event, SRK said that they are friends and do not consider it a clash.
Shah Rukh said, "We have now become friends, so we will do everything together. For you all it is clash, but not for us. We both are going to do well then. There might be a business clash but there will be equal profit for us."
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, 'Raees' touted to be an action thriller stars SRK opposite Pakistani actress Mahira Khan along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Salman's 'Sultan' is produced by Yash Raj Films. The leading lady of the film is yet to be announced.
Shah Rukh and Salman have warmed up to each other over the years. Now they are often seen appreciating each other professionally and personally.
In fact, Shah Rukh even unveiled the teaser poster of Salman's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' on hisTwitter handle. "I liked the poster so I promoted it. I liked Salman's lips on the poster and he is looking very cool. I saw the trailer, I liked it as well," he said.
Recently, at the trailer launch of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', Salman had thanked him and Aamir Khan for their support.
Salman had said, "I loved what they did for me; Lots of love and respect to them. It's because of Aamir and Shah Rukh that our film (Bajrangi Bhaijaan) has got eyeballs, extra interest. They are my buddy brothers."
