Why won’t Ajay Devgn postpone Son of Sardaar’s release?

Even as the industry puts added pressure on the Singham actor to postpone his next romantic comedy to accommodate other biggies set to release within the next few weeks, Ajay cannot do so…

It’s Bollywood’s most eagerly awaited time of the year when a number of big films storm the marquee. These days release dates are determined almost a year in advance and traditionally, Eid is when a new Salman Khan movie releases, while Aamir Khan is known to prefer Christmas and apna Singham actor Ajay Devgn aims for Diwali. In such a ‘dog-eat-dog’ world, if you are asked to shuffle your film’s release date when you are just couple of weeks away from it, the consequences could he hazardous.

And this time, Yash Chopra’s untimely death has set alarm bells ringing. We heard that some Bollywood big guns (read Yash Chopra’s well wishers) recently knocked on Devgn’s door asking him to postpone the release date of his latest, Son of Sardaar, as a mark of respect to the late filmmaker. Ajay, who had refused to budge earlier to give way to Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan, went out of his way this time to try and help; he spoke to the two production houses backing his mega Diwali release, but to no avail. The production houses, in spite of citing all due respect to the late director-producer, will go ahead with the original release date in the overall interest of the venture and its stakeholders.

With both Son of Sardaar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan scheduled to release on November 19, we are certainly going to see an interesting clash at the box office. We don’t know which film will win, but we genuinely wish success to both Ajay and Shahrukh. Fingers crossed!

    I really don’t understand how can people compare ajay and Srk? Ajay can never be a competitor to Srk..SRk for sure is the king

    • quickgun

      King of what ?Salman movies making more money one after another than Shahrukh so nowadays Salman is king even though i am not fan of his movies ….May be you like Shahrukh but his acting skill and choice of movies repetitive…except Chak De India.

      • ashu

        salman lallu is also doing same masala lodu sala……..he is also not a actor ………he is bloody son of south

  • sunny

    When salman khan is with ajay devgan He should release sof.Salman rules on bollywood..Because salman means “Ek bar jo meine commitment kar di’tu mein khud ki bhi nahi sunta

  • harsh

    srk to ek hi tarah ke roll karta ……………….ajay comedy, action,drama, romance sb kuch kar sakta hai……………….so why don’t compare ajay and srk…………..

  • sachin

    are bhai abhi jbhj hi post po. karni chahiye. ye faltu me yashji ke deth ka bajar banake paise cash karayege. Yashji ke deth ko srk khub midia me uchalega aur logo ko yash ji ka wasta de ke film dekh ne ko bulayega. agar sahi me srk ko yash ji ka gam hai to usne khud hi JBHJ ko post po. karna jahiye. ye ek misal banegi. Waise bhi wo film me anushka aur Kat. ka Bap hi lag raha hai.

  • S.A.V

    srk = King? Maybe true?

    But

    AJAY = EMPEROR = SURE!!!

  • sawera

    But srk to postpone his movie and not ajay
    srk its film are full dull

  • sawera

    why should move ajay son of sardaar
    srk has probably frightened before ajay

  • vishal

    agar industry wale yash ji to sammanit karna chahate hai to ajay devgan par pressure kyun dal rahe hai ….jo chala gaye uske liye kya asoo bahana ……agar yash ji ne achee film banayi hai ko kis baath ka dar ……….mai media des duniya ki baath nahi janta lekin ek baat janta hoon JISE HAI DUM O BAJIRAO SINGAM ………..BAKI SAB KA BHAV HAI KAM

  • RAHUL

    postpone karne k bat se hi pata chal ta hai ki kun singham hai. aur bhai sab ko ek din jana hai, ar koi admi des ar garib k liye kuch karte hai to soch bhi sakte the potpone karne k liye. jis din unka death hua unka khud ka production movie ka suting nahi ruka phir ajay ko kyu bol rahe hai. khud ka to rok nahi sakte kyu ki bhaut paisa laga hai aur ajay ne kya pani lagaya. jiske pas dimag nahi hai ar jo ajay bhai ko pasand nahi karte wo sab aise bate karte hai. so mukh pe tala laglo . barna SARDER KA KHOPRI HIL GAYA NA TO GAYA KAM SE.

    I don’t understand how releasing a film on the same day as another big film is in the interest of stakeholders. It’s in interest of the stakeholders to make a profit, with both SOS and JTHJ releasing on the same day – both films will suffer because of the competition between the two- it will split the audience – and therefore compromise the profit figures. A diwali release is defiantly a big time to release but with two big films releasing on the same day – it’s next to impossible for both films to do extremely well – which is the whole point of releasing during Diwali – to get a big response. It doesn’t make sense to release two big film one one day – it’s a huge gamble.

    why ajay postpond his movie.jisne ajay ky saath ek bhi film mi kaam nahi kiya,uskay liya ajay kyu apnay film ki bali chadaye.ajay ko apna rights hi…agar ajay ki movie postpond hoti hi tu ajay ki right ko violent kiya ja raha hi….

  • Nisha

    Ajay Devgn is a superb actor! In the league of Sanjeev Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Pankaj Kapoor, Aamir Khan and Naseerudin Shah. Shah Ruck Khan is just a super star, a business man who is so good at marketing himself that the public eats up his charisma. There’s a difference between being a star and a brilliant actor. I may be biased but Mr. SRK can’t compete with a actor as brilliant as Ajay Devgn. Looking forward to SOS!! Good Luck Ajay!

    • saurav

    SOS WILL ROCK AT THE BOX OFFICE, WILL BE A BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER OF 2012………AJAY THE REAL KING OF BOLLYWOOD

    SRK…….APNI FILM POSTPONE KAR LE WARNA BAHUT PACHTAYEGA

    • srk

      no one is better than our srk(don).

  • Tushar

    it is not correct to ask Ajay to change the release date. its business and thousands of people’s efforts are at stake and so is the big amount of Money. They have planned something and should go by their plan. If movie is good it will find success. It is SAD that Yash Raj has gone but it does not mean people should suffer their business to pay tribute. YRF camp should change their release date if they want a solo release to make this movie big. Why should other be bothered for that..

  • saurav

    Ajay devgn is great actor than srk. And if we compare the both movies sos and jthj, the sos is much entertaining and enjoyable, ajay is best…..this diwali only son of sardarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr……………..

  • avinash luha

    The Lion King of Bollywood AJAY DEVGN should not change the relise date of SON OF SARDAR . Saharuk khan agar Yash ko respect dena chahiye aur Jab tak hai jaan ko postpone karna chahiye . Sory yar Diwali Bekar Bina “SON OF SARDAR”.

  • sumeet

    SRK always gets competion with evry actor of bollywood, even with amitabh bachhan too, tu anti srk kush bhi kah lo tu bhi jante ho srk is best, most popular actor of india in word n in india also,
    other than srk evry actor has specific time of success, bt srk ruling from 15 years,
    flim ke realeas n critics ke bad salo sab yahi milna,
    aur best kon hai dekhna hai then search records n collection ,
    east or west SRK is best,

  • rayansh

    yes sumeet, you are right, every actor of bollywood wants to be srk, we the fan of srk never try to compair srk with other n ye sale chuze yahh karke rahte hai hamesha, srk se problem isliye hoti hogi coz unki gf unse jyada srk ko pasnd karti hai, lol,
    middle finger to salman fan club,
    srk the real n only one king of bollywood,
    jab tak hai jaan rocks.

  • salman

    abe salman aur ajay last 2 years se hi hit film de rahe hai iske pahle kaha the, bt srk 20 sal se chal raha hai, amir ko bhi lagan ke pahle tak kitne log jante the, tum sale salman ajay amir ke bhadwe hamesha jhagda karo, sale low mantality,tumhara bap hai srk,(for salman amir ajay akshay)
    srk is best ever n forever.

  • don

  • Shuayb

    The better movie will be jab tak hai jaan. SOS maybe entertaining but JTHJ will win in the BO and awards.
