Shahrukh Khan's Dilwale, and Deepika Padukone's Bajirao Mastani, would battle it out, to win the audiences approval on December 18, 2015. Both teams, are leaving no stone unturned and promoting them to get the maximum exposure possible.
However, Bajirao Mastani, has overtaken Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, in terms of screen releases. Bajrangi Bhaijaan, was released in 800+ theatres, and Bajirao Mastani would be released in 850+ theatres.
Trade Analyst Tarun Adarsh tweeted as,
"Eros goes HUGE with #BajiraoMastani Overseas, releasing in over 850 screens, bigger than their last blockbuster #BajrangiBhaijaan [800+]".
The extra number of screens, would only help Bajirao Mastani get additional revenue into its kitty and boost up its fight against Dilwale.
However, the number of screens that Dilwale would be released is not confirmed yet. The film-makers of Dilwale, have to increase their number of screens to give a tough competition to Bajirao Mastani, if not, they would be risking the movie in terms of revenue.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which released in 800+ screens, saw a phenomenal growth in terms of revenue, and minted a mammoth amount of 606 Crores worldwide. The figure itself is jaw dropping, and Eros, have now placed their bet on Bajirao Mastani, giving it access to 850+ screens.
Bajirao Mastani Vs Dilwale
December 18, 2015 would see a battle between Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale. Both the movies have been promoted well in terms of posters, songs and trailers. The neck-to-neck competition, would see the results on the fateful day of its release.
Shahrukh Khan, commands a huge fan following worldwide, and that may help Dilwale, to become a successful movie. However, Deepika Padukone too, has a large fan following and people would not like to miss any of her movies as she has delivered the best, in all her films.
Eros, pushes Bajirao Mastani ahead with 850+ screens worldwide, as compared to 800+ screens for Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Dilwale, would now face the heat of the competition if they do not raise the screens as compared to Bajirao Mastani.
Dilwale, has a huge starcast of actors such as Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Kriti Sanon, Varun Dhawan, Johnny Lever and Boman Irani.
The lovey-dovey couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, are all set for the release of their movie Bajirao Mastani on December 18, 2015.
Manma Emotion Jaage
Dilwale, has a youthful song Manma Emotion Jaage, and showcases Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.
Bajirao Mastani, is facing controversies as the descendants of Peshwa Bajirao and Mastani, claim that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie, has distorted facts about their ancestors.
The Last Laugh
Kajol, Shahrukh Khan and Rohit Shetty have a last laugh before the release of their upcoming flick Dilwale.
Thankfully, there has been no instances of mud slinging from the team of Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani. We hope both these movies to become successful at the box office.
