The three Khans are all pumped up for the chase in 2018 with their magnum opus releases. Despite maintaining friendly relations, refuting rumors about rivalry and often promoting eachothers’ films one cannot deny that the chase to conquer the ‘Ultimate Khan’ title continues. Salman Khan continued to rule Bollywood with his recent release Tiger Zinda Hai that joined the 250-crore club today and will mint more money. He is all set to hit the theatres with Race 3 releasing this Eid and winning over Bollywood once more. The film is directed by Remo D’Souza and coproduced by Salman Khan Films wherein Anil Kapoor will reprise his role. According to reports it is not a continuation of the previous instalments and will have a fresh plot with an elaborate cast which includes Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandes, Daisy Shah and Saqib Salem. Salman Khan whose previous film Tubelight did not do well proved his niche once again with Tiger Zinda Hai and plans to maintain the streak with Race 3.

The title of Shah Rukh Khan’s next ‘Zero’ was announced yesterday wherein he plays the role of a dwarf who lives his life to the fullest. The film has already started creating a huge buzz because of Shah Rukh’s quirky character. He will star alongside Anushka Sharma who plays the role of a disabled person and Katrina Kaif thereby working with Anand L Rai for the first time. The trio was already successful in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Shah Rukh hopes to achieve the same with Zero which is a Christmas release. 2017 did not prove to be King Khan’s year as his two releases Raees and Jab Harry Met Sejal failed to surprise the box office while Salman’s film made it big.
