It has been hard to disperse Ranbir Kapoor’s launch vehicle mostly because it was the entry of a star in a film that turned out to be a fiasco of sorts! Clashing with Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om was one of the worst decisions taken bySaawariya’s makers way back in Diwali 2007. However, the latest rumors suggest that 2014 Diwali will again see a similar clash between Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor at the box office.
Farah Khan’s Happy New Year starring Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan that just concluded the first leg of of its schedule in Dubai recently is eyeing for itself a Diwali release. But rumor mills have recently been spilling that Ranbir Kapoor starring Jagga Jasoos that is being directed by Anurag Basu and will be R.K’s first production venture might also be scheduled to release on Diwali 2014.
Jagga Jasoos is reportely going on floors in January, 2014 and both Anurag Basu and UTV team is insisting that the film releases in 2014 itself. Expected to wrap up its post production by September, the ideal time to release Jagga would be Diwali. Since Ranbir’s film Bombay Velvet, directed by Anurag Kashyap is scheduled to release in Christmas, the Diwali holiday is the perfect window for the film to release.
However given that SRK’s film too will release in Diwali, it would be a bad idea for both the films to end up in a box office clash. Given that SRK’s star power is way ahead of Ranbir’s, one can still expect 2014’s Diwali to be crackling for Bollywood.
