Though Bipasha Basu and Rani Mukerji haven't quite taken each other in the ring in a career spanning over a decade, the Bengali ladies would be battling it out soon at the box office. Bipasha Basu's CREATURE 3D would now be clashing with Rani Mukerji's MARDAANI on 22nd August.
BIPASHA BASU AND RANI MUKERJI
Incidentally both films have been pushed ahead from their originally planned release. Earlier, Rani's MARDAANI was supposed to arrive in Summer but then Yash Raj Films decided to move ahead their entire 2014 calendar, as a result of which the release was decided for August. Ditto for CREATURE 3D which was earlier eyeing 27th June release, but has now been moved ahead by a couple of months.
It is going to be an interesting battle for sure since both MARDAANI and CREATURE 3D are women centric films. While Rani plays a cop in the former, Bipasha finds herself in a terrifying situation as she takes on a creature.
Moreover, it would be interesting to see how director Pradeep Sarkar bounces back with MARDAANI after making LAAGI CHUNARI MEIN DAAG with Rani. On the other hand Bipasha and Vikram Bhatt delivered the biggest horror grosser of all times, RAAZ 3, when they came together last. Expectations are going to be humungous for sure.
No wonder, it is indeed one mighty August in the making, what with biggies like IT'S ENTERTAINMENT, SINGHAM RETURNS and RAJA NATWARLAl arriving as well one week after another.
