Not worried about ‘Airlift’, ‘Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3’ clash: Aftab
The erotic double entendre-loaded Bollywood sex comedy “Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3” will clash at the box office with action thriller “Airlift” on January 22. But Aftab Shivdasani, who is part of the former, says he is not worried about the clash with the Akshay Kumar-starrer.
“Both are very different kind of movies. Last month also, we watched a big clash (‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’), but both went well at the box office. There is an audience for both the films. So no need to worry,” Aftab said.
“Kyaa Kool Hai Hum 3”, said to be a porn-com, also stars Tusshar Kapoor and Mandana Karimi in lead roles along with Gizele Thakral, Claudia Ciesla, Krushna Abhishek, Shakti Kapoor and Darshan Jariwala.
Clearly, a clash with “Airlift” is a clash of genres.
“‘Airlift’ is an action thriller and more on patriotic side… ours is in the light-hearted and adult comedy space. There is a certain type of audience who want to watch these type of movies. Akshay is a big star and a very dear friend, so I hope both films will do well at box office.
“We think that both the films will find audiences because of different genres,” the “Masti’ actor added.
