Vivek Oberoi hasn't had a film release for almost two yearsnow (“Rakht Charitra”)was his last release). But come October and the actorwill have two films vying for audience attention. What puts Vivek in an awkwardsituation is that the two films in question, “Jayanthabhai Ki Luv Story” and “KLPD- Kismet Love Paisa Dilli” are slated for release on the same day, on 5October.
Of course, it goes without saying that no actor would like to have two filmsclashing on the same date, but as things stand today, the respective producers,Kumar Taurani and Amit Chandra, respectively are not ready to budge from thatdate. "Picture ek hi aani chahiye," Kumar Taurani informs me,"Well, it's not a great idea to have two films of the same actor releasingon the same date. It's not good for the producer, it's not good for the actoras well. I can talk about “Jayanthabhai Ki Luv Story”, it's definitely arrivingon 5 October."
Amit Chandra, the producer of “KLPD - Kismet Love Paisa Dilli”, echoes similarsentiments. However, Amit made a formal announcement of the release date of hisfilm at an event on Sunday, when he unveiled the first look of the film. Butthe question is, is it healthy trend to have two releases on the same day?"It's not. Ideally, there should be a substantial gap between two films.Come to think of it, how would an actor promote two films simultaneously?Wouldn't it confuse the audience?" Amit reasons.
Has Amit spoken to Kumar Taurani about it? "Yes, I did... I hope he blinksfirst. I hope he's sweet enough to shift his film ahead," Amit states.What is Vivek's stance on the entire thing? "I guess, Vivek wants Kumar-jiand me to sort it out amongst ourselves," Amit adds. Let's see who blinksfirst!
