BizAsia has learnt that two of the most anticipated films this summer, ��Barfii�۪ and ��Joker�۪ might potentially clash by arriving on the same date ��� 31st August 2012.
At present, ��Barfii�۪ is set to arrive on 13th July (and is in direct competition with ��Cocktail�۪ which stars Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone), but rumour has it that its release has now been postponed to 31st August as there are major portions of it that still need to be shot.
���As of now, we are looking at releasing it on 13th July, the date we have assigned to the film. Only if the filming process gets delayed for some reason will we choose another date� said Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures in an interview with Bollywood Hungama. Since both films are produced by UTV, it is highly likely that the clash will be averted.
��Barfii�۪ is directed by Anurag Basu and stars Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz and ��Joker�۪, a 3D sci-fi fantasy, starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha is directed by Shirish Kunder.
