"SHOLAY v/s CASH clash would be unfortunate" - Anubhav Sinha
Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
News has been making rounds that Ram Gopal Verma is planning to bring his SHOLAY soon to theaters. Tidbits from the film's promotion have started coming in and the first date to have been announced by the film maker is 13th July.
So what's the issue with this release date? Another biggie CASH is also slated for release on the same day i.e. Friday, the 13th July.
Tell Anubhav Sinha, director of CASH about the latest proceedings and he says with a shrug, "I have not been made aware about any development like this. As far as I know, CASH is confirmed for July 13th and there won't be any delay further to this."
There have been indications that the FACTORY owner is also keen on the same Friday? "I don't think it will eventually happen due to two reasons. First and foremost ADLABS is bringing both these films to screens and I am sure that they would go all out in their capacity to make sure that the clash of the biggies does not happen. Two, Ajay Devgan stars in both the flicks. What sense does it make to have two films of a single star on the same day?" he asks
But what if it eventually does happen? "Then I can just say that it would be very unfortunate if a clash of SHOLAY and CASH happen. It would be a professional hara-kiri. Having said that I have a hunch that something like this won't really happen," he concludes.
