Shahrukh Khan and Ajay Devgn are all set to battle it out at the Box Office, this Diwali.
Both their upcoming films, Shahrukh’s Yash Chopra film and Ajay’s ‘Son of Sardar’, will release on the same date – 14th November.
But the battle has already begun. Shahrukh has already won the first round, it seems. The distributors for Shahrukh’s film have already booked more than half of the theaters, leaving Devgn in a fix.
A distributor tweeted, “Yashji’s film has already been signed for all the cinemas across India which are playing Ek Tha Tiger. That takes away the best ones!”
A Cinema owner too favored Shahrukh’s film and said, “Firstly, being a SRK-Yashji combo, one can safely assume maximum shows will go to that film. It will approximately be a 70:30 ratio. And it is a practice that is followed by few producers when they have big releases back to back.”
Yashraj confirmed the news saying, “YRF has been dealing with the same theatre owners through our distribution offices over the last 40 years and all of them would be more than happy to screen a Yash Chopra film, coming after a gap of eight years, without any reservation.”
