No respite yet for Vivek; Clash between KLPD-JAYANTABHAI continues

Vivek Oberoi is finding himself in the middle of an unlikely situation and even though it is a happy problem to have, it still is something which is avoidable. It is a known fact since last fortnight that two of his films are being slated for release on the same day, what with Kumar Taurani and Amit Chandra hell bent on releasing JAYANTA BHAI KI LUV STORY and KISMET LOVE PAISA DILLI (KLPD) on 5th October. However trouble lies in the fact that there is no amicable solution reached yet. Things have only taken a furious turn, what with KLPD promotion on and that of JAYANTABHAI... too beginning in about a week from now.
With a state of deadlock ensuing, Taurani feels that even in the worst case scenario of the two films clashing with each other, there won't be much damage.

''I have realised that every weekend audience wants a new film to watch. Last month we saw BOL BACHCHAN, COCKTAIL as well as KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM releasing one after another and still did so well. Now look at the way EK THA TIGER is doing. Today even if both movies of Vivek come together and JAYANTABHAI... gets 15-20 crores weekend, it's okay with me. I am not looking at 50-60 crores. Moreover genre of both films is different. There he is playing a lover boy and in my film he is a gangster,'' says Kumar Taurani.
Meanwhile Amit Chandra isn't stepping aside either and though he is being polite, he is also being stern in his messaging.
''Kumarji may say that he wants to come in October but till a few days back he didn't have any confirmation in hand. He may have completed the film first but in all fairness, it was me who had started it first. Doesn't that give me the right to release first as well?'' questions Amit.
Guess this isn't the last one has heard about the two films and the uncertainty continues on whether Vivek would be in the middle of a clash or one of his producers would eventually back out.
