The much talked about Bachchan versus Kapoor clash may not happen after all! Obviously we are talking about Independence Day and the simultaneous release of Abhishek Bachchan's Goldie Behl directed DRONA and Yash Raj's Siddharth Anand directed Ranbir Kapoor starrer, BACHNA AE HASEENO. Thankfully, better sense seems to have prevailed and DRONA has decided to pull out of the race.
As per our trade and distribution sources, the makers of the Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Kay Kay Menon starrer, DRONA, have decided to move ahead by a week and so the high budget SFX extravaganza will now hit the screens on 22nd August 2008, along with Sanjay Dutt's KIDNAP. No reason has been given for the same, but it now leaves an open field for the Ranbir-Deepika starrer, BACHNA AE HASEENO, on August 15.
Before we leave, the usual disclaimer- Release dates can change even at the eleventh hour!
