So what if Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees' won't make it to the theatres this Eid to compete with Salman Khan's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'? His co-star Mahira Khan, who stars in one of Pakistan's most anticipated projects this year titled 'Bin Roye', will be pitted against Sallu on the festive occasion.

A source says, "Mahira got a bit of recognition in India following the success of Pakistani drama series 'Humsafar' that was aired here. Before bagging the lead role in 'Raees', she had shot for 'Bin Roye', which is the only film that will release with 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. It is being distributed by a television channel here. Mahira will promote the film in India along with her co-star 'Humayun Saeed'. After a premiere in Dubai, it will release in Indian theatres on Eid."
Director Momina Duraid says in the wake of the Indian audience's appreciation for their projects like 'Humsafar' and 'Zindagi Gulzar Hai', they will be presenting 'Bin Roye' as an Eid gift.
The spokesperson for the channel states the film will be released on 75 to 100 screens, adding: "Because of the festive flavour in the movie, it was meant to be released worldwide on Eid 2015."
