It appears that the fallout of the July 29 clash between the three biggies, AAP KAA SURROOR, APNE and AWARAPAN, has made the industry wiser. Two big movies, Rajkumar Santoshi's Ajay Devgan, Vidya Balan starrer, HALLA BOL and Yash Raj's Shah Rukh Khan starrer, CHAKDE! INDIA, were slated to release against each other on August 10. But that will not happen now.
As per our distribution sources, the makers of HALLA BOL have decided to move ahead and will now release their movie, sometimes in September.
While no official reason has been given, we feel that it is the correct decision because the two awaited movies would have cut into each others earnings.
