Film shuffling seems to be the trend this October; first Anjaana Anjaani had its release date moved around, then Aakrosh, which was set for release on October 1st, moved to the 8th. That wasn’t the end of it though, as it then again moved from the 8th, to the 15th of October. Bipasha Basu, who stars in Aakrosh, confirmed this date on her Twitter account, tweeting the following, “Aakrosh n Jhootha hi sahi release on the same day!15th oct!.”
Both films were delayed because both Sajid Nadidwala and Priyadarshan did not want their films to clash with the Ayodhya verdict.
All this shuffling means we will see two former Miss World’s battle it out at the box office on October 1st, as Priyanka Chopra‘s Anjaana Anjaani opens along with Aishwariya Rai Bachchan‘s Robot. We’ll also see one of Bollywood’s power couples pitted against each other, as John Abraham‘s Jhootha Hi Sahi will release on the same day as Bipasha’s Aakrosh.
Many trade analysts have predicted that moving Anjaana Anjaani’s release date will only have bad repercussions as the film has not managed to generate a lot of buzz around it, compared to Rajnikanth’s Rs 150 crore sci-fi adventure, Robot.
Seems we will have to wait until October 1st before we find out whether the trade analysts predictions come true or not.
