Now this is one competition that Salman Khan wouldn't have seen coming. Though he and everyone associated with his EK THA TIGER would have felt that they were arriving uninterrupted this Eid, there is a twist in the tale. As has turned out, the makers of the sequel to SAHEB, BIWI AUR GANGSTER are eyeing the festive season as well and would ready their film to be released on the same day as EK THA TIGER.
'This is a very new development and something that has taken most by surprise. Yes, SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER was a surprise success last year but for it to clash with EK THA TIGER is akin to taking things a little too far. However Tigmanshu Dhulia (director and co-producer of the film) has made up his mind. In fact he has summoned his cast and crew as well to shoot the film at a break neck speed,' informs a source.
''Yes, we do start shooting in April and wrap it up within two months flat in a single extended schedule,'' confirms Dhulia, 'Post production begins immediately after and then we get ready for the Eid release.''
On being asked that this would translate into a clash with Salman's EK THA TIGER, he questions with a smile, ''Why should we wait when the entire script, cast and schedule has been locked? We know people are waiting to catch the sequel and Eid is just the right time for that.''
