Deol's forthcoming film Singh Sahab the Great will reportedly clash with Khan's Eid release, said to be a remake of the Telugu blockbuster Stalin starring Chiranjeevi.
According to IANS, a source said: "Sunny is happy with the way the film has been shaping up. The drama and the action have brought so much confidence into the characters and Sunny feels Eid would be just the right date for the release."
Describing the storyline of Singh Sahab the Great, Deol said: "The film is based on a common man's life and Eid is one of those holidays when the aam aadmi is in a much happier space.
The actor added that he was not concerned about clashing with Khan.
"The cinema business has changed. Since there are so many cinema halls, two big films can release at the same time. I am sure no one wants to take over anyone's business."
Deol, along with brother Bobby and father veteran actor Dharmendra, were in the UK recently shooting for Yamla Pagla Deewana 2.
