SALMAN KHAN and VIVEK OBEROI
Salman Khans most ambitious film till date VEER has been scheduled for a November 27th release. And surprisingly on the same date Dharma Productions yet to be titled Saif-Kareena-Vivek starrer, directed by Rensil DSilva, is also being planned for release.
It will be for the first time that any of Salmans film will clash with that of old foe Vivek Oberois. While, Salmans VEER is a much bigger project, said to be having 100 crore budget, Viveks film can prove tough competition to VEER because of its topical subject and coming together of Karan Johar and UTV's smart marketing strategies. It is learnt to have a plot line quiet similar to that of 1999 released Hollywood thriller, ARLINGTON ROAD. In the film, Saif and Kareena play a Muslim couple who are terrorists living a double life. Vivek is the second lead in the film and he is also a terrorist. And Minissha Lamba who plays a journalist is his love interest. Om Puri also has an important role in the film. Irrfan was approached to play the role of a terrorist in the film but he turned it down.
If one recollects, in April 2003, Vivek Oberoi had held a press conference at his house complaining about Salman Khan harassing him over phone and giving him life threats for his then relationship with Aishwarya Rai. Salman had that time not reacted to the negative publicity he got from this episode but it is learnt that he made sure that Vivek was almost ostracized by most industrywalas. Post his break up with Ash, Vivek on many occasions tried patching up with Salman, but in vain. The controversial Khan always chose to ignore him and hinted that he will never forgive him.
Well Vivek looks like your idea of patch-up will have to take a backseat and get ready for one more clash in the form of Box-office!
