Doesn't look like the tense situation between Bollywood superstars and rivals Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan will get any better in the near future.

As per recent reports, the warring Khans seem to be invading each other's regular release date space for their future films.

Over the years, both SRK and Salman's films have enjoyed a monopoly of sorts during the two big Indian festive periods – Diwali and Eid respectively. Their films seem to be planned and released accordingly.

However, this trend was broken by SRK in 2013 when he decided to release his film Chennai Express during the Eid holidays.

Now, it looks like the warring Khans are battling for the right dates as, according to Bollywood Life, Salman Khan has picked Diwali 2015 as the time of release for his upcoming film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo directed by Sooraj Barjatya.

"Now we wonder if SRK will bring in his movie 'Fan' around the same time to give tough competition to Salman Khan's film", states the BL report.

Fortunately however, the clash of dates will not be an issue in 2014. While SRK's next film, Happy New Year will be releasing around the Diwali season in October, Salman's upcoming movie, Kick, will hit theatres in July.
