Bollywood has blocked its releases for August 11, which has been announced as the release date of Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s upcoming film. The untitled project, which was tentatively called The Ring till now, has been directed by Imtiaz Ali. Unlike other films, the date announcement was made by the superstar Salman Khan and SRK’s Dear Zindagi co-star Alia Bhatt.

Salman took to Twitter to announce that the date has been decided by him and the title should be soon decided by the filmmakers while Alia, just like us, felt the date was too far. However, what every one of us is forgetting is that the film is not a solo release for the Independence Day weekend.

Apparently, the film is to clash with Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, Crack. The release date of the film was announced by Akshay himself when he was prepping up for the release of Rustom, which went on to become one of the highest grossing films of 2016.
Akshay shared this information on Twitter and wrote, “This time,we come together for ‘CRACK’ – A Neeraj Pandey film. Releases Independence Day weekend 2017.Need your love .” Akshay also shared the first look of the movie which shows a broken and cracked pair of spectacles. The story plot of both the films have not been revealed but we are sure that the fight is going to be worth the wait.
It will be interesting to see if any of the actors will shift the release of their film. To bring into your focus, Shah Rukh’s film Raees has been postponed once due to a clash with Salman’s Sultan. Even after shifting of its release date, it will clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
