Ranvir Shorey's MITHYA releases this Friday. However this is not the first time ever that the young talented actor is seeing a film in the early part of the year. If one goes back down the memory lane Ranvir Shorey has a special love for the month of February.
Believe it or not but out of 16 films starring Ranvir which have arrived at the theaters, 6 of them have been in the month of February. Still not believing it? Then picture this!
While this year Ranvir's campaign kick starts on 8th February, last year he had two back-to-back projects arriving in the same month. The films were TRAFFIC SIGNAL and HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD. which came on 2nd February and 23rd February respectively.
Same was the story in year 2006 as well. MIXED DOUBLES, where he played a male lead, was released on 10th February. Exactly a year back had arrived HUM DUM. The date was 11th February 2005. Though 2004 was an exception, 2003 had seen him arrive in the month of February for the first time in his career with the release of FREAKY CHAKRA.
Incidentally, except for FREAKY CHAKRA, each of his four February films have been at the least moderately successful at the box office. That should give MITHYA some support from the history.
Though most of his upcoming films like SINGH IS KINNG, UGLY AUR PAGLI, 1 AM 24 and GOOD LUCK would be hitting the screens before year end, one waits to see what does Ranvir has up his sleeves which he would unveil in February 2009!
