Due to some technical issues, Salaar's release date had been postponed from its initial date of September 28. Now, it is set to release on December 22. Dunki has reportedly already secured its slot on Christmas with the same release date, although the official announcement is yet to be made.
Regarding Dunki's release, Shah Rukh Khan addressed a fan's question during an 'Ask SRK' session on X. When a fan asked if Dunki's release date was fixed despite the clash with Salaar, Shah Rukh Khan replied, "Dunki is indeed fixed. Should I tattoo it on my forehead now?"
Furthermore, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh also confirmed this clash, stating, "Yes. It’s true… SRK Vs Prabhas, Dunki Vs Salaar this Christmas… The exhibitors have received a mail stating that #Salaar will arrive THIS CHRISTMAS [on December 22, 2023]… An official announcement by the producers, Hombale Films, will be made on Friday [on September 29, 2023]."
