This may well be the first clash of its kind.
Come August 31 and there would be two remakes that would be clashing at the box office. Though Ram Gopal Varma claims his AAG to be more as a tribute to Ramesh Sippy's classic SHOLAY, Kamal Sadanah's VICTORIA NO. 203 is a direct remake of the namesake 70s comedy cum thriller.
While promotion of RAM GOPAL VARMA KE AAG is catching on full steam, one still waits to see the first glimpse of VICTORIA NO. 203. Jimmy Sheirgill, who plays the young lead in the film dominated by veterans Om Puri and Anupam Kher, is confident though.
He says, "Kamal has a great marketing acumen and knows how to place his film in the market. He is making sure that the film gets just the right push for its publicity and once the time is ripe, VICTORIA NO. 203 would be all over the place. Expect a bombarding of promos and other media campaigns soon. Things are looking good for the film and if everything runs as per the plan, it should arrive on August 31."
Meanwhile RAM GOPAL VARMA KE AAG has got into the third gear with Urmila's sizzling 'Mehbooba' act being the talk of the town. She has come up with a holds-no-bar dance performance in this Ganesh Hegde choreographed and composed tune which explains the true meaning of 'inspiration'. Meanwhile the character introduction promos continue to dominate the music channels hence making sure that the hype for the film only sees an elevation with every passing day.
