It looks like Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movies are blessed to face the clashes (SAAWARIYA V/S OM SHANTI OM and BAJIRAO MASTANI V/S DILWALE). However, they even turn out successful at times. Now his yet another upcoming biggie PADMAVATI is said to clash with Amitabh Bachchan & Rishi Kapoor starrer 102 NOT OUT, helmed by Umesh Shukla (OMG! OH MY GOD & ALL IS WELL fame). Both PADMAVATI and 102 NOT OUT will release on December 1, 2017.
While SLB’s last film BAJIRAO MASTANI, which was based on historical characters although fictionalized, could topple a mindless romantic comedy DILWALE, this time around it will be quite a challenge for the filmmaker as both PADMAVATI and 102 NOT OUT seem to be high on content.
PADMAVATI is period drama which is a fictionalized account of the life of Rani Padmini, a legendary queen mentioned in Padmavat and it brings the hit jodi of Ranveer & Deepika once again together, whereas has Big B and Rishi Kapoor playing father-son duo. Besides they are reuniting after 26 years so the excitement around the film is certainly high.
Further Deepika shares a great equation with both the veteran stars. While Amitabh Bachachan and Deepika Padukone have played father-daughter in films like AARAKSHAN and PIKU, Deeps is very cordial with her ex beau Ranbir Kapoor’s father Rishi Kapoor.
Now it is to be seen if these two films really clash at the Box-office or either of the two pushes/prepones the release or else they go ahead to clash. Well, time will tell.
