Shah Rukh Khan and Ranveer Singh are no more clashing at the box office. If fresh reports are to be believed, the two actors have averted the clash.
Previously, SRK’s next that’s directed by Aanand L. Rai was set to have a face off with Ranveer Singh’s “Temper” directed by Rohit Shetty. The two films were to release on the same day, i.e December 21, 2018.
But, now, the clash has been dismissed and Ranveer’s film is releasing a week later, i.e. on December 21, 2018.
Looks like the two actors do not wish to repeat the history! For those unaware, last year in December, SRK’s “Dilwale” and Ranveer’s “Bajirao Mastani” helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali had released on the same day and that hugely affected the box office numbers of both the films. So, looks like they have now learnt from the mistakes of the past and have taken a wise decision.
A source has been quoted by a popular daily, “Rohit Shetty’s film has been titled Temper and the release date has been pushed further by a week. It will now release on December 28 and not Christmas week. While earlier it was to release on December 21, now two films are coming on that day – Shah Rukh Khan’s untitled next directed by Aanand L Rai and Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. Rohit has never been someone who likes his films to clash with others as he believes they cut into the box-office business. Also, he knows SRK well and the two had a word with each other about it. Both are big films in their own way, hence Rohit, who is co-producing the film with Reliance Entertainment, decided to postpone Temper by a week.”
The source adds, “There have also been reports that Ranveer may lend his name as a co-producer, under his mother’s (Anju Bhavnani) name, along with the producer of the Telugu film Temper, Bandla Ganesh. He has always supported young, first-time producers himself like Vikramaditya Motwane for Lootera and Zoya Akhtar for Gully Boy and may lend his name, without investing in it like Akshay Kumar and have a share in the back-end profits.”
