Did Rohit Shetty request Salman Khan to shift the release date of the latter's Antim: The Final Truth to a post-Diwali Friday?
Sources say Salman was keen on a Diwali release, even though Akshay Kumar's Sooryavanshi had already confirmed its arrival on the date.
Salman felt there was enough room for two big releases during the Diwali weekend.
But Sooryavanshi Director Rohit Shetty requested the superstar to shift his film's release date.
Antim, featuring Salman and brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, will now release on November 26.
By agreeing to reschedule his film, Salman was only repaying a debt to Shetty.
Salman Khan's Inshallah (directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali) was supposed to clash with Rohit's Sooryavanshi on Eid 2020.
At Salman's request, Rohit moved his release date ahead, to March 2021.
Of course, Inshallah never got made and the COVID-19 pandemic had other plans for Sooryavanshi.
