Hindi film industry are scrambling to release their products
By Priyanka Khanna, IANS
In a bid to end the year on a positive note, filmmakers linked to the box-office driven Hindi film industry are scrambling to release their products and promise blockbusters even as sparklers released to coincide with Diwali and Eid festivals continue to dazzle audiences across the country.
While Yash Chopra's Shah Rukh Khan-Preity Zinta-Rani Mukherjee-starrer "Veer-Zaara" is enjoying advance booking of two weeks in most theatres, the re-released epic drama "Mughal-e-Azam" has had smooth sailing in the first week and seems set to pick up more pace.
"Veer-Zaara" may not be a record shattering blockbuster but it will not leave anyone unhappy.
Ram Gopal Varma's "Naach", though supreme cinematically and content-wise, has been rejected by people in most circuits and is likely to be taken off the marquees soon.
"Aitraaz" by Abbas-Mastan starring Akshaye Kumar-Kareena Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra is doing well as expected. It was marketed as a sexy film and delivers what it promises.
