This Diwali is turning out to be everyone's favourite. What seemed like Shahrukh Khan's playground is now seeing a mini invasion of sorts with many others joining the fray, latest being Govinda starrer LOOT.

'After being stuck for a couple of years, LOOT is now finally nearing completion and has its plans set for Diwali arrival,' informs a source, 'Makers feel that this is the right time for their fun entertainer to arrive as it is festive season ahead.'


One hopes though that this decision has been well thought of since RA.ONE is expected to arrive huge. Moreover DAMADAMM as well as TELL ME O KKHUDA release on the same day too.

Says a filmmaker with a smile, "Guess it could well be termed as a 'comeback Diwali' for all. Himesh, Esha as well as Govinda would be looking at making a comeback with a hit. On the other hand Shahrukh too has a lot to prove by coming back on screen after a year and a half."

Not all is lost for LOOT though. Silver lining is in the form of Mahakshay Chakravorty who would be seen again after this year's surprise hit HAUNTED. Also Suneil Shetty, who is also the producer of the film and found some good appreciation coming his way for his comic act in THANK YOU may bring in some laughs.

"All of these are ifs and buts," a trade guru comments, "You need to promote your film well to fetch any eyeballs. Rakhi Sawant was just roped in to do an item number for this very purpose."

Let's see if that helps the film make any 'loot' at theatres once this Rajneesh Thakur directed affair with Hansika Motwani and Shweta Bhardwaj as the leading ladies releases this Diwali on 26th October.
