Call it a coincidence but a number of actors are having two of their films releasing quite close to each other or worse even on the same day.
Tanushree Dutta has her GOOD BOY BAD BOY and RAQEEB spaced apart only by a week, ditto for Sharman Joshi whose METRO and RAQEEB come on back-to-back weeks. Tusshar too has GOOD BOY BAD BOY and SHOOT OUT AT LOKAHNDWALA within 2 weeks of each other while Viveik Oberoi has back-to-back releases in the form of SOAL and FOOL N FINAL.
The buck doesn't stop here as Amitabh Bachchan has two of his films coming on the same day with his CHEENI KUM competing with SOAL. Neha Dhupia sees herself in a lead role in EK CHALIS KI LAST LOCAL and later finds herself in a high profile crowd in SOAL a week later.
Thankfully the makers of THE TRAIN were quick to realize that two films starring Emraan Hashmi [the other being GOOD BOY BAD BOY] coming on back to back weeks didn't quite make much sense and hence were first to respectfully back out and re-plan an arrival on June 8. Now they enjoy a sole release on June 08!
One now looks forward to see if makers of NAQAB and NANHE think on the same lines too. Reason? Both the films star Bobby Deol in the lead and are planning to come together on July 20th! While NANHE is directed by Sameer Karnik who made his debut with KYUN HO GAYA NAA a few seasons back, NAQAB is a bona fide thriller by the masters Abbas-Mustan.
It has to be noticed though that NAQAB has just announced its release plan whereas NANHE has been ready since last year but is waiting to get the right release platform for itself!
Though it is all but certain that one of the films would opt for a later day, the question is which of the two would take the first step?
