Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have been in the news for their renewed friendship ever since the duo signed the film YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI. However, it seems that the latest news can disappoint the actors and push the two friends to compete against each other. The release date of their next outings has clashed as both Ranbir's BARFI! and Deepika's COCKTAIL are set to release on July 13, 2012.
According to a source, "Anurag Basu can't afford to delay BARFI! any further. The director wants to release the film and move on to his next venture immediately. Ranbir understands that as well which means he won't push for further delays either. On the other hand, Deepika shares a great rapport with Saif after working with him in LOVE AAJ KALand AARAKSHAN. She too realises that the film is really important for him."
"There is another hitch though," informs a trade follower, "It is not just about Ranbir and Deepika taking on each other but the producers of both the films will also have to be wary of superstar Ajay Devgn. Ajay was the first to block this date (13th July) for BOL BACHCHAN. With Rohit Shetty as a director, Ajay's film looks massive any ways, especially after SINGHAM."
