What will you watch this Diwali: Shahrukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan or Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaar?
On November 13 two superstars will clash at the BO. Which film are you rooting for?
Diwali is considered to be a great time to release films, but trade pundits don’t recommend that two big-budget movies open in theatres on the same day. Throwing caution to the winds, the makers of Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar have decided to battle it out at the BO on November 13. The trailer of Shahrukh Khan’s romantic musical has just been released and is already trending worldwide on Twitter. JTHJ is Yash Chopra’s directorial comeback after eight years or so and he has AR Rahman and Gulzar on his side.
Son Of Sardaar, on the other hand, is a fully masala entertainer starring Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Juhi Chawla. Though it has been directed by Ashwani Dhir, SOS looks like a typical Rohit Shetty film. If the trailer is anything to go by, this one could present a good fight to Chopra’s romance.
EK Tha Tiger was sold to exhibitors on the condition that they would also give equal screens to the SRK film. That will leave SOS with very few screens and odd show timings. News is that Ajay Devgn is trying to flex his muscles with the powers that be to get his film a proper release. Watch this space for more developments about this clash.
Meanwhile, which film will you choose to watch this Diwali; JTHJ or SOS?
