Ranbir's mystery thriller not likely to clash with Aamir's 'Lal Singh Chaddha'
After Ayan Mukherjee pushed his ambitious project Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor to 2020 to avoid clash with Dabangg 3 citing reason of bettering the VFX of the movie, here another setback for the 'Rockstar' actor's fans.
Ranbir has hinted that his yet to be titled film with director Luv Ranjan might be pushed to avoid a box office clash with superstar Aamir Khan's "Lal Singh Chaddha", which is scheduled to release next year. "Lal Singh Chaddha" is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks' blockbuster "Forrest Gump".
Aamir recently announced that the film will release on Christmas 2020.
"After 'Brahmastra', 'Shamshera' would come. So I think Luv Ranjan's film might have to be moved ahead because I think even the audience would get bored if I have three films in a year. It's still being planned," Ranbir told reporters.
Recently, Ajay said he was unaware about the status of the box office face-off.
Talking about the clash between his and Aamir's film, Ajay said in an interview, "We don't know what is happening about the clash, that Luv will decide. I heard the same day 'Avatar 2' is releasing. In that case, we both will have to run away. 'Avatar' is big."
"Brahmastra" was going to release in December, but director Ayan Mukerji postponed it to summer 2020. The film also stars Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan.
"It's unfortunate we could not make the December release date because of various reasons. The CG wouldn't have been ready. It's sad that again there will be a gap between my film, since 'Sanju' released last year.
"It's not good for actors to have such long gaps. But it's not in my hands. As long as the film is well made, I'm happy. We are not giving the film a deadline," Ranbir said.
Both the actors were speaking on the sidelines of a Panasonic event, said he has been shooting for "Brahmastra" and "Shamshera" simultaneously.
"It's hard because both are these big action films and I'm not used to that genre. It's been quite a hard year for me but I'm having fun."
