The clash of the two cousins -- Ravi Chopra [BAABUL] and Aditya Chopra [DHOOM 2] -- has been averted. Both BAABUL and DHOOM 2 were slated for release on October 20. But Ravi, the elder brother, has decided to opt out of the race. Therere already two biggies [DHOOM 2, DON] in the fray on October 20. Theres no point cutting into each others pie. Hence, Ive decided to schedule BAABUL after Diwali, Ravi Chopra informs me.
