Following Radhe, Salman Khan has three big-budget films lined up, starting with Aayush Sharma’s Antim then Tiger Zinda Hai 3 and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. However, there were rumours that one of the superstar’s most ambitious projects, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, would be shelved. While there have been speculations that the film’s title may be changed, later there were rumours that the entire production will be scrapped.
The production house, on the other hand, stated on their official Twitter account that all of these rumours are untrue and that the film is still in the works, with shooting planned to begin in two months. The film’s sets are also being built, as well as the recording of the songs is also completed.
Rubbishing a news article of an entertainment portal, NGE Movies wrote, “We would like to deny all the #FakeNews #EmbarassingJournalism
The set is being constructed & songs have already been recorded. Shooting begins in 2 Months 🙏”

Meanwhile, Salman Khan is looking forward for Antim to be released in the same way as Radhe was; however, the film will be shown on a few single screens as well as a digital release on Zee5.
Revealing more about the hybrid release, a source close to the production told Bollywood Hungama, “Salman Khan felt that Antim is more of a relaunch for Aayush Sharma and with cinema halls being shut in Maharashtra, it’s best to bring the film on digital platforms to make it reach the target audience.”
“The team is contemplating on a hybrid release i.e. a Zee 5 premiere + a theatrical release in single screens across India. Both Salman and Zee are aware that multiplexes won’t agree to release their film, and hence are clear on a strict single screen release for fans across the country,” the source added.
