Boys to man: Its Harman versus Imraan

Harman and Imraan
Isn't it ironic how most B-Town BO wars are between love stories. After last Diwali's Saawariya vs OSO face-off, the battleground is set for another showdown between Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and Love Story 2050. While the earlier one was a filmmakers' fight, the summer stakes are up for grabs with debutant actors contending. On the face of it, they're two very different people, Imraan's poised and calm while Harman's excitable and nervous. In Imraan's words, a different time and place and they'd have been friends, but as of tomorrow, the battle's on.

Star sign: Scorpio
Height: 6 feet 2 inches
Debut: Love Story 2050

Trade Buzz: Trade is upbeat about the film. The special effects are being talked about too. But given the high production cost (approximately 50 crores), it will be interesting to see what happens on the box-office.

Harman Baweja

I will start Friday with
What I have been doing for the past 27 years start my day with a prayer.

Competition is

My biggest source of strength is
My belief in hard work.

My state of mind at the moment can be best described as
A five-year-old sitting in a cockpit and being asked to fly a 747 (I have absolutely no clue as to what the hell's going on).

My best compliment so far has been from
A five-year old girl I met an event recently who screamed aloud when she saw me. She said, 'I love you, Harman' and after three seconds bhaiiya!'

I have seen my film about
Only once in completion and 47 times during the edits and rushes.

My biggest critic is
My sister Rowena who says I have a long way"€¦

I would be happy if
Love Story 2050 is received well.

One thing I want to say to Imraan is
(Here, Harman asks me whether he can be bitchy. When I affirm, he changes his mind. Says he wants to keep it more fun than bitchy as he has no problems with Imraan personally).

Hey Imraan, I hope we both last till 2050 but then again who knows Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na?

Imraan Khan

Star sign: Capricorn.
Height: 5 feet 11 inches.
Debut: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Director: Writer-turned-director Abbas Tyrewala
Co-star: Genelia D'Souza
Claim to fame: Aamir Khan's nephew

Upcoming projects: He has two movies already in different stages of production. One is Kidnap directed by Dhoom director Sanjay Ghadvi with Sanjay Dutt; also another project with Sanjay Dutt directed by Soham Shah titled Luck.

Trade Buzz: As the movie has been made on a very moderate price and is being distributed by a theatre chain (PVR Pictures) it will be a winner even though it will do a little above average business.

Imraan Khan

I will start Friday with
More promotions for Jaane Tu and continue the promotional stuff till July 12. I do get bored of doing interviews but what to do?

Competition is

My biggest source of strength is
Myself, my own mind. When certain problems and situations crop up, I solve by them by myself. It has always been like that as I am a very self-sufficient person.

My state of mind at the moment can be best described as
On auto-pilot.

My best compliment so far has been from
Aamir. He told me, 'your not bad' and you know coming from Aamir, that's a lot.

I have seen my film about
50 times at least. I have sat through every single edit and rough cut and have been very involved right from the beginning.

My biggest critic is
My girlfriend Avantika who says I need to work a lot harder. She's seen the film and has liked it but says she can't view it objectively.

I would be happy if
People like the film (Jaane Tu) more than I do.

One thing I want to say to Harman is¦
I will give him my best wishes. I have a couple of friends who have worked with him and say that he's a very nice person. I am sure we would have got along in different times but unfortunately, this whole drama happened of our films clashing.

(After the interview is over Imraan's boyishness surfaces when he asks if I am writing a masala story on both the boys and will spice up his quotes. My denial is met with disbelief.)
