Khiladi 786 and Yash Chopra’s Shah Rukh and Katrina Kaif starer will be releasing in Diwali 2012, this will be the exciting period, as Shah Rukh and Yash Chopra has always rocked the Box office and Akshay with Khiladi title has never seen down,

Yash Chopra’s production house has announced that the film will be released in next Diwali,

Source said,

There’s no confirmation on Yashji’s film. Sensing the date open, when Akki and Himesh finalised their film, they decided to release it during Diwali as well.

Khiladi 786 is being directed by debutant Ashish Mohan, so this will a challenge for Akshay to stand opposite Shah Rukh Khan,

According to sources,

The script is the strong foundation of Khiladi 786, with a good dose of romance. So they’re not worried about any other film releasing on the same day, Akshay’s Blue registered a good opening in 2009 while Himesh’s Damadamm made profits this Diwali,

Khiladi 786 source said,

These days, it’s very important to have a good release date. Khiladi 786 is a complete family entertainer.

So what better time to release it than Diwali? Eid, 2012 has been booked by Salman Khan for his Ek Tha Tiger. Besides, next Christmas, he’s also coming with Dabangg 2. Diwali was the best time for us,

Yash Raj’s spokesperson said,

As we know Diwali is an exciting time for movie releases. The two films are completely different genres and without canibalising each other, give the audience a wonderful choice. We do not look at this as a clash. The audience will choose to see both the films over the usually extended Diwali weekend.
