Shahrukh & Farah's Cold WarAt now Shahrukh Khan and Farah Khan are no longer friends is known to all. Both of them go aggressive when they promote their films is also not new. But what does come as a surprise is that, both have decided to release their upcoming films on the same day, August 31, 2012.

Farah’s film “Joker”, which has been directed by her husband Shirish Kunder and SRK’s co-production with Karan Johar’s Dharma, “Student of the Year” will clash at the box office in the second half of the year. While, Farah had announced the release date for Joker earlier, Red Chillies and Dharma have just finalised the date and are yet to make an announcement.

However, once the dates are announced, it would be interesting to see how the former friends Farah Khan and Shahrukh Khan deal with the marketing of their ventures.

“I am not aware of the release date of the other film. As far as I am concerned, Joker is definitely coming on the 31st of August,” said Shirish Kunder. Karan Johar chose not to reply on this issue.

Keeping Farah and SRK’s marketing tactics in mind, an industry expert told, “Farah and SRK are both extremely strong headed. They will start a volley of verbal attacks and not leave any stone unturned for their film to be in the news.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali had earlier faced similar attacks from Farah and SRK when Saawariya released alongside Om Shanti Om in 2007.
