As per the latest buzz Kat and Saif starrer Phantom will release alongside Hrithik’s Bang Bang which also has the Dhoom:3 babe as the female lead. Will Katrina try and avert this clash? We hope so…
We hear that Katrina Kaif isn’t happy as two of her big films this year – Phantom and Bang Bang are set to battle it out at the box office. Yes, the makers of Phantom are planning to release their film on October 2 which is a Thursday. Since it’s the longest weekend of 2014 as Friday is Dussehra followed by Eid on Monday, Fox Star Studio is also eyeing the same date for Hrithik Roshan and Katrina’s Bang Bang. Though at a recent event, Ms Kaif said that she is doubtful about both her films releasing on the same day, Phantom director Kabir Khan said to a tabloid, “We are releasing our film on October 2. It is going to be a five day weekend, so there is enough space for the two films to co-exist.”
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, we hear, isn’t willing to budge and wants to release his Saif Ali Khan-Kat starrer on Gandhi Jayanti as the long weekend would prove to be an advantage for the film . In that case, we are sure Ranbir Kapoor’s alleged girlfriend will have a tough promoting both her films simultaneously. Also, if Phantom and Bang Bang release on the same day, their box office collection will certainly get affected.
However, the B-town beauty can avoid this clash by asking one of her producer’s to move the date. But the question is – will Kat intervene? Well, only time will tell.
