Sanjay Leela Bhansali delivered one of his biggest hits with actor Shahrukh Khan in Devdas. Both the director and actor are also known to share an easy camaraderie with each other. However, soon the two good friends will have their films pit against each other as both have plans to release their films during the Diwali festival.
Bhansali's Saawariya and SRK's Om Shanti Om will be releasing during the same time, thereby reducing their audience viewership as audiences will be divided about which film to watch as both are big banners with big names.
The SRK team along with director Farah Khan has delivered a hit last time round, so this time too people will have high expectations and with SRK and newcomer Deepika starring in the film it will no doubt have high demand. Meanwhile, Bhansali too has been delivering constant hits with his films like Devdas, Black etc, so there is anticipation from him to deliver a hit this time too.
Also people will be curious to watch newcomer Ranbir Kapoor, son of veteran star Rishi and Neetu Kapoor, and co-star Sonam Kapoor, daughter of Anil Kapoor. Saawariya will also have guest appearances by Bhansali's muses Salman Khan and Rani Mukherjee in the film.
So the question is which film will win the challenge of emerging with a larger viewership? So will Bhansali's Saawariya win or will SRK's Om Shanti Om win? Only time will tell.
