BobbyLara in ‘Bardasht’:

Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s forthcoming flick BLACK, which was scheduled to hit the screens on January 21, has been shifted to February 4. Although the producers were unavailable for comment, Kumar Mangat, the Mumbai distributor of BLACK, confirmed to this writer that the film will hit the marquee on February 4. February 4 is the final date, Mangat informs me. A couple of multiplexes also confirmed with this writer that February 4 is the date.

With BLACK getting shifted to February 4, the much-awaited clash between Ghai [KISNA] and Bhansali [BLACK] has been ruled out. Instead, BLACK will now clash with BEWAFAA and MAIN AISA HI HOON on February 4. Which means, it’ll be Bhansali versus Dharmesh Darshan versus Harry Baweja on this date!

Meanwhile, Harry Baweja is firm on releasing MAIN AISA HI HOON on February 4. Why should I postpone my film just because BLACK and BEWAFAA are releasing on the same date? he counters. He continues in the same breath, I’d announced the date much before Boney [BEWAFAA] and Bhansali [BLACK] zeroed on this date [February 4]. In fact, the date is special to me since DILWALE was released on this day a few years ago.

The gutsy producer admits that the business is sure to get affected if three biggies clash on the same date, but you can’t postpone your film to suit others, he says with certainty.
