The ladies will battle it out with their respective films
Three leading ladies though from different generations - Sridevi, Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor - will battle it out at the box office this September. Their big projects, ‘English Vinglish’, ‘Ishqk In Paris’ and ‘Heroine’ will reportedly hit the theatres on the same day, September 21, 2012.
While Gauri Shinde's tale of a housewife trying to master the English language will see 80s queen Sridevi return to the silver screen after 15 years, ‘Ishqk In Paris’ is perhaps Preity’s last attempt to stay put in the Bollywood race. As for Kareena, Madhur Bhandarkar's saga about the rise and fall of an actress, is kind of an acid test.
While most filmmakers hesitate to have big films release simultaneously, none of the filmmakers are ready to budge from their scheduled release date. However, ‘English Vinglish’ producers Eros International might have to shift their dates to avoid a direct confrontation.
Needless to say, their 'plans' clash with those of Bhandarkar's, who recently expressed his wish to release the film on Bebo's birthday. It was earlier supposed to hit the theatres a week earlier. Bhandarkar's sudden change of heart put Bebo at loggerheads with her 'idol' Sridevi and Preity.
Who will win this war of the beauties? We can’t wait to see!
