SRK, it appears, is suffering from a plague of clashes. Raees, in which he plays a liquor baron, was rescheduled from July to next January, exchanging a collision with Salman Khan's Sultan for a three-way clash with Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil and Ajay Devgn's Baadshaho - Baadshaho was postponed to next May and reported high-level negotiations between SRK and the Roshans might see Kaabil re-calendared.

Dear Zindagi, which is Gauri Shinde's second feature after English Vinglish, stars Shah Rukh Khan, 50, as a life coach dispensing advice to the much younger Alia Bhatt.
