Ranbir Kapoor's BOMBAY VELVET turns googly for Bollywood

Bollywood release equations have gone for a toss, what with Ranbir Kapoor's BOMBAY VELVET all set to arrive on 28th November now. Suddenly, the whole brouhaha around clash with Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan's P.K. has turned out to be an absolute non-issue with Anurag Kashyap bringing his film a distance apart.
No one can say that with absolute confidence on whether Aamir, Vidhu Vinod Chopra or Rajkumar Hirani had any inkling whatsoever w.r.t. change in plans for BOMBAY VELVET. After all, it was just a few days back when P.K. was advanced by a week and slated for arrival on 19th December. It had seemed that this was done to make way for BOMBAY VELVET, more so since Anurag had made his displeasure quite evident around clash of his film with the Aamir starrer. However, with BOMBAY VELVET coming practically a month earlier, there is a new twist in the tale.
In fact, there was so much secrecy around the sudden change in plans that no one except those who were closely attached to BOMBAY VELVET was aware of the plans. The announcement was made all of a sudden when in the wrap up party of the film, the cast and crew landed up at the venue while wearing T-shirts with November 28 printed on them.
'It was as cheeky as it gets,' a source adds, 'With no other film slated for arrival on 28th November, it is as clean as it gets as far as prospects of BOMBAY VELVET are concerned. What is all the more interesting though is to see P.K. enjoying two open weeks with the Christmas slot being wide open now.
Well, that would be the case unless the third player in the game, John Abraham's WELCOME BACK, doesn't decide to grab the 25th December slot for itself. Now, that would be one googly from Firoz Nadiadwala and Anees Bazmee that would only make this match all the more exciting.
Guess this isn't going to be last that one has heard as far as the three most high profile releases before year end are concerned. Stay tuned for more updates.
