Two films on the same day

Date clash

Two films on the same day

Vivek Oberoi’s two upcoming films, Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story and Kismet Love Paisa Dilli, are set to release on the same day with no change in the date so far but the actor hopes one of the producers will move ahead.

While Kumar Taurani has produced Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story, Kismet Love Paisa Dilli (KLPD) is Amit Chandra’s project and both are keen on October 5 as the release date. Promotions of KLPD are on while that of Jayanta Bhai is set to begin soon and either of the producer is yet to move towards a different release date.

“They (Amit Chandra) may have started promotion now but we too would be beginning by month end. We just need a few weeks of some really intense promotion to get us going. We are not backing out for sure. Our posters are ready, the first cut of the film is in place as well and if there is going to be a clash on October 5 so be it,” said  Kumar Taurani.

Vivek last had a release two years back when Ram Gopal Varma’s Rakht Charitra Part I and II released in quick succession but failed at the box office. The 35-year-old actor is hopeful that there will be an amicable solution. “Of course, no one wants a clash. I have spoken to the producers and hopefully one of them will move ahead,” he said.

Amit Chandra understands the situation and empathises with Vivek. “It is not great for two films to release on the same day; it is not going to benefit either Kumar ji or me. I have requested him and hopefully he would.”
