It did seem for a while that Ranbir Kapoor is very scared of Salman Khan.

Salman Khan’s film Tiger Zinda Hai is set to release during Christmas this year. Ranbir’s film with Rajkumar Hirani – the biopic on controversial actor Sanjay Dutt called Dutt was also scheduled to be released around the same time.

Ranbir has a past with Salman Khan with a physical fight during his pre-actor days to a cold war post his splitting up with Katrina Kaif. Katrina was once Salman’s girlfriend too and now is a close friend of his.

But now Ranbir has clearly moved his film to 2018 and also ended up playing Santa to Salman ensuring that the actor has a clean run at the box office.

But sources close to Rnbir say that the actor did not get the film moved for Salman. He wanted his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif to get a good run at the box office.

Katrina is Ranbir’s heroine in the upcoming Jagga Jasoos and also the heroine of Tiger ZInda Hai.
