Seems, Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are destined to be at loggerheads. No doubt, the two came together in Devdas but after that, the duo was engaged in a wordy duel at the time of release of their films. Shah Rukh’s production venture, Om Shanti Om, starring himself, and Bhansali’s production and directorial venture, Saawariya, hit the screens on the same day in November 2007. Both the celebrities left no stone unturned to promote their films and, in the process, gave quotable quotes to the media persons, running down the box-office potential of each other’s film. That the films were releasing on the festive occasion of Diwali only made the word-driven fireworks sound even more enjoyable for the readers and viewers. History might repeat itself this year because June 17 will once again see the films of the two clashing. Only thing, neither is Shah Rukh the hero of his film nor is Sanjay Leela Bhansali directing his and UTV’s production venture this time. Shah Rukh Khan’s Always Kabhi Kabhi, starring Ali Fazal, and Bhansali’s My Friend Pinto, directed by Raghav Dar, will be released on the third Friday of June. So, get set for another war of words, perhaps!
