Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Mental’ seems to be giving Sanjay Leela Bhansali sleepless nights. Reason? The film’s release may clash with Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’.
According to reports, ‘Mental’ was due for release early next year but rumours suggest that the film maybe preponed to November-end. This means ‘Ram Leela’ – is releasing on 29th November – just a week after ‘Mental’.
Bhansali had earlier moved ‘Ram Leela’ from a August release to avoid clashing with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Chennai Express’. However, the 22nd November release of Mental۪ has now posed a new problem for the director.
A source said, “Salman`s films usually run to packed houses for two weeks, and Bhansali would thus lose out on a major portion of the audience. So much so, he is now contemplating moving his film out of the November 29 slot.”
