What a coincidence! Three filmmakers and one astrologer! Three big films are releasing this week, each with a different USP. The first one is 'Apne'. This film has papa Deol with both his sons together for the first time and he is also coming in a full-fledged role for almost after a decade. Then comes Himesh Reshammiya's acting debut Aap Ka Surroor about which people are curious to see Himesh's acting abilities. How good or how bad!
And last, but not the least is Mukesh Bhatt's Awarapan, which they claim their best film till date and Mukesh Bhatt thinks that this film will do what Zanjeer had done for Amitabh Bachchan, to Emraan Hasmi. All films have big claims only time will tell the reality. But the interesting fact is that all the films start with the alphabet 'A' and are releasing on the same day.
Maybe all three makers go to same astrologer and he might have advised them the title as well as the release day. As we hear a lot about film industry people contacting the astrologers. But next time they have to be careful when they choose their official astrologer and not like this one who despite knowing that if three good films are released on the same date it will hamper their commercial prospects.
So the only suggestion for filmmakers is 'choose astrologers carefully' and give their name in the credits as well as they play an important role in filmmaking.
