Kareena Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor”>Aah, now how much do we love clash between the biggies when it comes to box office battles! However, this one could well turn out to be a clash of the decade if this indeed happens. Though one has seen two mega stars bringing their biggies opposite each others and sometimes even friends forced to arrive on the same date due to professional reasons, this would be for the first time ever that two siblings would clash with each other. They are none other than Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor whose Talaash and Dangerous Ishq respectively are aiming for arrival in June next year.
“Yes, this is strange, unfortunate, but true”, says an insider, “It would be a precarious situation for Bollywood if this clash indeed happens and that too over the same weekend. Talaash has been confirmed for 1st June release while Dangerous Ishq too has announced its arrival in the same month. Though it is yet to close on a date, it still risks an arrival which would be way too close for comfort. This clash has to be avoided by all means.”
The worry doesn’t come without a strong reason. After all, Rowdy Rathore has already been confirmed for 15th June and neither would the film budge from its spot nor would Dangerous Ishq think of releasing alongside a film that has names like Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Prabhu Deva involved. The very next week arrives Teri Meri Kahani and that one is a biggie too with Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in lead. The week to follow is open and as long as Dangerous Ishq is willing to contend with a one week open run, it should be fine since all eyes would be on Bol Bachchan which arrives next.
“Really, there are too many calculations at play and there has to be good thought given to the arrival of Dangerous Ishq. Kareena won’t have to worry for her film since Talaash being an Aamir Khan starrer won’t change its plans. It would be Karisma who would have to play smart and while it is out of question that she would clash with her younger sister, an arrival on the very next week is ruled out as well. With the kind of packed schedule that June is anyways carrying, it is all the more surprising that the makers even thought of coming in the same month. They would have to wait”, says a trade expert.
While both sisters too would want to stay away from each other by all means as none would wish to jeopardise each other’s plans, there could well be a situation when the makers use this very scenario as a good enough promotional tool that would help their film. As for Kareena, she is pretty much waiting for her sister’s comeback with a bated breath. She says, “I am sure she would recreate the magic she has always been famous for whenever she appears on screen again.”
Hope that happens a few weeks before or after you have weaved your magic Bebo.
