The SRK-Farah Khan war only gets hotter. Rumour has it that King Khan has influenced Eros International to shift the release date of Ajay Devgn-Kajol starrer "Toonpur Ka Superhero" from December 17 to December 24, 2010, so that Farah's film does not go uncontested at the box-office.
If true, this is rather strange, as Shah Rukh does not seem to mind if not-exactly-best-friend Ajay Devgn's film eats into former best buddy Farah's "Tees Maar Khan". It must have been a tough call. SRK is very close to the Kishore and Sunil Lulla, head honchos of Eros International, ever since they produced "Om Shanti Om", which Farah directed.
Farah Khan, for her part, has since come out in the actor's favour: "I don't think there's any truth to it," she told the Indian Express newspaper. "SRK would never stoop to that level. I refuse to believe it."
But now that "Tees Maar Khan" is not opening at the box-office uncontested, Farah says she's going to work harder. "I am very fond of Ajay Devgn. But we are not competing with any film. In fact, with one more film in the fray, it pushes me to work harder. I would've loved if 'Tees Maar Khan' came without any opposition, lekin kya karen? I am used to having major opponents in the past 'Om Shanti Om' and 'Saawariya' were released on the same day."
Farah has in the past said she would never do a film with anyone other than Shah Rukh.
