Why is the teaser of Raees out so early?
Fan and Dilwale are set to release in April 2016 and December 2015, respectively. Despite their earlier releases as compared to Raees, it is the latter's teaser that is out.
The fashion of releasing a teaser in order to build curiosity among audiences, has just taken a push in Bollywood. Earlier, the makers of Zoya Akhatar's Dil Dhadakne Do too revealed the film's first look a year prior to the film's actual release.
Raaes vs Sultan - One of the biggest clashes in Bollywood history
While Raees stars Shah Rukh Khan, Sultan stars Salman Khan. The two big stars clashed at the Box Office in 2006 and 2008 as well. However, the Box Office mood then was not as it is today. Both Salman and Shah Rukh are equally popular now and their names speak of their fandom and the success of their films.
