Shahid, Bebo to clash on same day
Ex- lovers Shahid and Kareena Kapoor will clash with each other as each of their films are likely to hit the theatres on the same date.
The news has triggered enormous speculations amongst the trade pundits whether this is a coincidence or a deliberate plan by either of the two to test their star quotient.
Earlier, the tinsel town was abuzz with excitement to witness the clash between John Abraham and his former girlfriend Bipasha Basu along the same lines. John’s ‘I, Me Aur Main’ was initially pitted against Bips’ ‘Aatma’. However, the latter’s film got postponed depriving the viewers and critics of an exciting clash.
Meanwhile, filmmaker Prakash Jha was supposed to release his social drama ‘Satyagraha’ on the occasion of Independence Day this year. But certain reasons forced him to postpone the release date, resulting in a direct competition with Shahid-starrer ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’.
‘Satyagraha’ features megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpai in leading role. It will hit the theatres on August 23. On the other hand, PPNH has Shahid paired opposite ‘Barfi’ actress Illeana d’ Cruz.
Considering the setbacks suffered by 31-year-old Shahid in his film career recently as compared to the continuous surge in Bebo’s star-graph, we are not sure whether the former can afford to take a risk this time.
