Tusshar Kapoor's LOVE U MR. KALAKAAR! clashes with sister Ekta Kapoor's RAGINI MMS this weekend. While one would have assumed that none of the two siblings would have been overtly pleased with the developments and would have requested the other to arrive later, the fact is that there was no such trouble no paradise as it turned out to be a mutually acceptable decision for both.
"I guess there is room for both the films and since other biggies would be arriving in June, we would have a fortnight for ourselves. We couldn't find a better date for release. Also, we had to look at IPL as a major factor," says Tusshar.
EKTA KAPOOR and TUSSHAR KAPOOR
How about audience getting divided?
"Audience for a Rajshri film is different from the ones who would be watching RAGINI MMS," says Tusshar with a straight face, "When Rajshri released their VIVAAH with APNA SAPNA MONEY MONEY, it was a huge success as well. While RAGINI is for urban audience which is into horror genre, LOVE U.... is a simple family entertainer that would have its reach in smaller towns as well."
The fact remains though that neither Ekta nor Tusshar were too keen to have RAGINI MMS and LOVE U MR. KALAKAAR clash with each other. After all they would have wanted to avoid eating into each other's business for obvious reasons.
Informs a close friend, "However when they checked the release calendar, it was filled with Salman's READY, a strong franchise DOUBLE DHAMAAL and also Hrithik's ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA. It was obvious that instead of taking on these biggies, it was better to come with other small to medium budget films even if it meant clashing with one's own."
