If challenging the Deol trio of Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby [APNE] and Bhatts-Emraan Hashmi-Pritam [AWARAPAN] in the year gone by was not enough, Himesh Reshammiya is now turning even more ambitious with his latest venture KARZZZZ. While his AAP KAA SURROOR - THE MOVIEE had released alongside APNE and AWARAPAN in 2007, Himesh is all set to make headlines in 2008 as well with the release plans of his latest venture KARZZZZ being announced. As per trade circles, this Satish Kaushik film is all set to arrive on 10th October.
So what's special about this date? After all the only other release of the week is OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE which stars Abhay Deol, Paresh Rawal and Neetu Chandra in the lead!
Well, the case in point here is that its 10th October arrival means that KARZZZZ would be arriving exactly a week after GHAJINI (Aamir Khan), KIDNAP (Sanjay Dutt), WANTED-DEAD OR ALIVE (Salman Khan) and DRONA (Abhishek Bachchan) - all of which are looking at a 2nd October release.
Incidentally there is no release planned for 17th October yet which makes it an open playground for KARZZZZ. However 24th October is fully loaded with GOLMAAL RETURNS, ROADSIDE ROMEO and YUVRAAJ aiming for release.
Though one still waits to see whether any of these films actually hit the marquee on the said date (while GHAJINI seems to be postponing for sure, there is no concrete confirmation around release plans of other films too), one thing is for sure that Himesh Reshammiya has made his intentions loud and clear. He is ready for the BIG challenge and doesn't mind entering the ring in spite of such mighty rivals around.
