This is the season of box office clashes. It all started last year in December with Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale clashing. This was followed by rumours of a big clash between Raees and Sultan.
However, it seems Shah Rukh Khan decided to play it safe after Bajirao Mastani did better box office business, and Sultan had a solo release.The clash between Mohenjo Daro and Rustom is still underway, with Rustom emerging the winner so far.
However, one of the biggest clashes of this year is going to be between Karan Johar’s directorial venture Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay, both of which are releasing on Diwali this year.
While Johar and Devgn have not spoken about the clash, Ajay has finally addressed the issue.
“I don’t waste my time thinking about anybody else’s film. I want to concentrate on my film because, eventually, it’s the product that speaks. Why break my concentration? I’m only concerned about what I’m making,” said Ajay Devgn upon being asked if he is “prepared” for the clash with Karan Johar’s film.
He further said that when they announced the release date for Shivaay, nobody else was releasing a film at the time, and that it’s their [Dharma Productions] prerogative if they want to cash on a good day.
Devgn further said that when he reached out to Fox Star India, co-producing Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, they refused to budge. – CINEWS
