It may feel as if Bollywood makes the most of all occasions and holidays by timed releases and actor-producer superstitions. One of the most popular release dates of the year has to be at Diwali and 2012 is going to be no different. It will see a clash between Ajay Devgn’s home production, ‘Son Of Sardar’,��and Yash Chopra’s next (currently untitled)��starring Shah Rukh Khan.
Devgn seemed unaffected by the competition as reported by the Hindustan Times, “Diwali�۪s been lucky for me with films like Golmaal Returns (2008), All The Best (2009) and Golmaal 3. Rascals (2011), that released last Dussera, had a vulgar streak, I�۪ll never do a film like that again”. Devgn’s latest offering, ‘Tezz’,��releases tomorrow (27th April).
Devgn, when asked about the YashRaj project, says, “I don�۪t know about their (YRF�۪s) film, but SOS is a comic love story with lots of action, a perfect festival film.”
Chopra’s film stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma alongside Khan and sees the return of Chopra himself as a director. It is already one of the most awaited films of 2012 and Diwali is sure to see the kind of clash where one may outdo the other purely in the popularity stakes.
