So does that mean Katrina Kaif will also clash with Salman Khan at the box-office since his film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Inshallah, is also slated for the same release date? If yes, the clash just got more lethal.
On the work-front, the actress has Bharat with Salman coming up for this year’s EID, meanwhile Kumar gears up for Mission Mangal, Good News and Housefull 4 for 2019. As far as 2020 is concerned, he already has his plate full for next year as well.
