Bhushan Kumar avoids clash with Salman Khan at the box office
As his association with Salman Khan spans over a decade, T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar makes sure his 'All Is Well' does not clash with good friend Sallu's home production 'Hero'
Salman Khan's association with T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar spans over a decade — the label has had the music rights to most of the star's films. Apart from a professional equation, the duo is known to share a personal rapport as well.

Incidentally, Bhushan's 'All Is Well' directed by Umesh Shukla was to release on July 3 and clash at the box office with Salman's home production, 'Hero', a remake of Subhash Ghai's 1983 hit. The film will mark the debut of star kids Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. However, sources suggest that Bhushan is planning to shift the release date of his film as a 'goodwill gesture'.
A source close to the development reveals, "Bhushan has not decided the final date as of now, but there is a huge possibility that the film will not release on July 3."
'All Is Well' was originally slated to hit the theatres last December, but unavailability of actress-politician Smriti Irani delayed the shoot. She was replaced by Supriya Pathak and her portions were re-shot. The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Rishi Kapoor.
Bhushan says, "Yes, the earlier date was July 3 and I do share a good rapport with Salman bhai. But as the shoot of my film is still underway, I don't think we will anyway be able to release the film on that day."
