After the grand success of Lai Bhaari, Riteish Deshmukh is ready for his second Marathi venture Mauli, where he is portraying the titular character in the film. The makers of Mauli have just announced the release date and it seems they are eyeing on festive release to enjoy the maximum footfalls. Mauli is scheduled to release on December 21. But again there is a twist, as we know Shah Rukh Khan's highly-anticipated film Zero is releasing on the similar date, we will again witness a box office clash between the films.
While many of you will disagree, with this clash as Mauli is a Marathi film while Zero is a Bollywood venture. But if we consider the box office role, Mauli can affect the business of Zero in Mumbai and other states of Maharashtra due to its appeal and Riteish Deshmukh's fanbase in these circuits. Talking about Mauli, the film marks the Marathi debut of Mirzya fame Saiyami Kher. The film is directed by Aditya Sarpotdar, who previously helmed Faster Fene. It is produced by Riteish's wife Genelia Deshmukh and the music is composed by National Award winning duo Ajay-Atul.
