If the release dates stick to the plan, the much awaited battle of two supreme production houses may eventually be a reality.
Yes, August 10 could be the date when films coming from Yash Raj Films and UTV could be clashing at the box office. These are CHAK DE INDIA and THE BLUE UMBRELLA.
While the date for CHAK DE INDIA has been finalized way in advance (as is the trend with all YRF films now), one still awaits confirmation on the final release date for THE BLUE UMBRELLA.
Incidentally both the films are different like chalk and cheese when it comes to scale, grandeur and set up. While CHAK DE INDIA is of course going to be all hyped up due to coming together of YRF and Shahrukh Khan, THE BLUE UMBRELLA is a long-time-ready-for-release flick by Vishal Bhardwaj which has Pankaj Kapoor as the only notable face.
Now one waits to see if this clash ultimately turns out to be a reality.
