Benaras versus Benaras on October 12
An interesting thing to note here is that both the releases have one thing in common, the holy city of Benaras (lovingly referred to as Kashi). The Rani, Konkona, Jaya, Kunal and Abhishek (in a special appearance) starrer, LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG, is based mostly in Benaras, with major portions of it having been shot there. The other 'Eid' week release, the Akshay, Vidya, Paresh, Shiney starrer, BHOOL BHULAIYAA, has also been extensively shot in places like Benaras (which according to Priyan abounds in Hindu customs and traditions), due to the requirement of the movie.
Here is sincerely hoping that the holy city of Kashi bestows its blessings on both the Benaras based movies and they jointly succeed at the box-office and give the audience and Bollywood a dual 'Eid' treat.
