Mumbai, October 8 (CINEWS): Coming Christmas has two major discharges will be conflicting — Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale (featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol) and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani (featuring Deepika Padukone).
In any case, at whatever point any film has conflicted with an SRK film, the other film has been the failure. Says a source, “SRK has a considerable notoriety of beating his adversaries at the Box office. Right from Kuch Hota Hai, which conflicted with Amitabh Bachchan-Govinda starrer Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998) to Mohabbatein and Mission Kashmir (2000)? While Veer Zaara triumphed over Akshay Kumar’s Aitraaz (2004) Salman Khan’s Jaan-E-Mann discharged on Diwali with SRK’s Don (2006) and SRK again won that specific film industry fight. One of the greatest washouts was maybe Bhansali when he discharged his Ranbir Kapoor-Sonam Kapoor starrer Saawariya with Shah Rukh’s Om Shanti Om (2007). Saawariya was trounced and OSO went ahead to end up the most astounding earning Hindi film at the season of its discharge.”
As of late, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ) conflicted with Ajay Devgn’s Son of Sardar (SOS). While SOS earned `105 crore, JTHJ made `200 crore. Littler movies like Damadamm and Tell Me Oh Khuda, obviously, have been pulverized by the Rock SRK when they conflicted with Ra.One. Chennai Express (made `227 crore at the BO) conflicted with and Akshay Kumar-Imran Khan-Sonakshi Sinha Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara (2013), which is said to have made `61 crores. While maker Ekta Kapoor made a valiant endeavor to safeguards her thrashing film OUATIMD by some forceful showcasing and advancements, CE made a charge with Shah Rukh leading the limited time crusade and getting down to business with it.
One year from now will see one of the greatest conflicts with SRK’s Raees tackling Salman’s Sultan on Eid. It will be intriguing to perceive how it will play out as Salman’s stakes have risen extensively from his Jaan-E-Maan days.
