Film-maker Anurag Kashyap has been very ambitious about his upcoming movie Bombay Velvet starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma and is leaving no stone unturned to offer this as one of his best pieces. However, with possibility of another much-awaited flick PK directed by Rajkumar Hirani and starring Aamir Khan being released on the same Christmas day, Anurag does not seem much pleased.
Director Anurag Kashyap has expressed strong discontent on actor
Aamir Khan and director Rajkumar Hirani when he learnt that the duo
have decided to release the movie PK on the same day as
planned by Anurag in advance for Bombay Velvet.
"I heard some rumours some times back and hence called Raju
(Rajkumar Hirani) and told him to let me know in advance if they
were planning to release the film on Christmas. At that time, they
said there were no such plans. All it would have taken is just a
phone call," asserted enraged Anurag.
The Bombay Velvet director informed that he received no
call from the PK makers about the film's release date and
then he came to know about it from Aamir Khan's post in Twitter
informing that the release of PK has been postponed from
June 6 to December 25.
Anurag's words clearly indicated that he is feeling insecure
about Bombay Velvet's fate as Aamir Khan starring
PK which is likely to release on the same day might snatch
all the crowd. "I am not concerned about the marketing war at this
point. But it's obvious that both films will be affected if they
release on the same day. We may sort that out at a later stage,"
said the anxious director.
The emotional director further added, "It hurts because I
respect Raju as a film-maker and as a person. Apart from being a
colleague, he is also a good friend." However, Rajkumar Hirani
could not be contacted for any remark.
Well, now only time can decide whether it's Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet or Rajkumar Hirani's PK which will steal the show but we wish both the director's have a Merry Christmas coming.
