The director finally reacts to the competition revolving around his magnum opus, Bajirao Mastani and Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale!
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, Bajirao Mastani, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra in leads, released its trailer on November 20. And should we say, we were totally stumped by the larger than life feels of the film! Not only has Bhansali worked for 12 years to make his dream project see the light of the day, but also faced several issues with the making of the film. But while the director announced the release date of his film, a new bomb in the form of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer, Dilwale announced its release date and is all set to clash with Bajirao Mastani!
Now while everybody made speculations of the competition and earnings of both the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, finally opened up about what he feels about the Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale clash to a leading daily! He was quoted saying, “I talk to Shah Rukh as well as Salman Khan. I met SRK the other day at Amitji’s (Amitabh Bachchan) party, and we hugged and chatted. Of all the actors that I have worked with, I have met Shah Rukh the most. I am not here to be enemies with anyone. I have great respect for him. His next film (a Rohit Shetty directorial) is different, and so is mine. They should both do well in today’s tims, when there are so many screens. Why are we making an election campaign with these films, wondering which party will win? This isn’t politics, or a sport. SRK is a huge star; a great person and a wonderful friend. I don’t have reasons to spoil relationships with people. I enjoy my conversations with him. I am very fond of him.”
Wow! So Bhansali has finally cleared the fog of competition that engulfed the movie clashes by pointing out the differences of the films! But while it is a very evident competition that is going to persist nevertheless, tell us which of the two movies would you pick first when going to the theatres on December 18, in the comments section below!
