The much-hyped clash of the Khans on Eid next year, might just not happen at all. Eid 2016 could have been the first time that the two stars had film hitting theatres on the same day with Shah Rukh Khan's Raees and Salman Khan's Sultan scheduled for release. However, Raees producer Ritesh Sidhwani has said the filmmakers will attempt a discussion over the so-called clash.

"Once both the films are done, we will sit and talk. Several films are announced but then they (release dates) are moved too," Ritesh said ahead of their upcoming movie Bangistan.

One of the other producers, Farhan Akhtar, was surprised when asked about his stand on the 'clash'. He said it wasn't the right time to talk about Raees and they will talk at the appropriate time.

Ritesh added, "Eid is next year and our film just has 20 days of shooting left. We're working so that the film comes on Eid, because it is that kind of a film. Even they (the 'Sultan' team) will also try for a similar plan but first let the shooting of their film begin and then we'll see. There is no specific intention to have a clash."
