Come December 18, two of the biggest production houses will lock horns in the theatres. Each with an ensemble cast, and massive budgets will fight it out in the theatres to attract cine-goers.
There has been a lot of buzz in the market saying that one of the films should change their release dates to avoid a clash, after all it's about the box office earnings in commercial cinema! However, this time the dates seem to be fixed. So, what's happening, is it truly about the craft this time?
In case you're wondering about this, it was reported in bollywoodlife.com that a columnist in a popular magazine hinted in a blind item, writing, "Turns out all’s not well between a male superstar and a top actress, and it may have something to do with the fact that they have major movies clashing on the same date. As per industry sources, when it became clear that both movies had been scheduled to open the same weekend, the actress reportedly called up the superstar—whom she has worked closely with from the start of her career— and requested him to consider shifting his film’s release date. “It’s my biggest release, na…” she apparently cooed to the actor, who is believed to have smartly retorted that he’d happily oblige if she was willing to make the same request to him on Twitter or in the press: “Just say ‘We’re scared to come on the same day, so please shift your release,’ and I will.”"
Strangely enough, during a recent outing to promote Bajirao Mastani, Deepika fiegned ignorance and claimed she wasn’t aware Dilwale was releasing on the same day as them.! “I don’t know, I am getting to know from you guys”, she said when a journalist quizzed her about the clash. In another interview she gave elaborated, “It is not as complicated as it is made to sound or written. It is very simple. The kind of film they are making and we are working on are very different from each other.”
The report stated that Dippy had further added, “I think Bajirao Mastani is so consuming that we don’t have time to worry about who is doing what. We have our own deadlines. In the process, if some other films come I think there is enough space for both of them to come and do well.”
