|Come September, it’s going to be a clash of the Kapoors at the box office with both Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor vying for footfalls.
Ranbir Kapoor is looking forward to some interesting releases this year and one of them is Roy, co-starring Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez. Directed by newcomer Vikram Singh, the film will hit theatres on September 12, the same day when Vishal Bhardwaj’s much awaited film Haider starring Shahid Kapoor would release.
Neither of the two movies is a mainstream masala fare, and it may very well be that their clash will divide the market revenue. While Ranbir Kapoor is clearly a stronger crowd puller than Shahid Kapoor, Haider will attract footfalls because a Vishal Bhardwaj film always comes with a lot of expectations.
'Roy' first look is intriguing
Meanwhile, another release of Ranbir Kapoor, namely Jagga Jasoos, will hit the marquee on May 29, right after the end of the IPL season this year.
The film, starring Katrina Kaif, Govinda, and Ranbir, is presently on the floors.
The big festival release dates of the year, like Eid, Diwali and Christmas, have been booked by the three Khans each. Salman Khan’s Kick will release on Eid-Ul-Fitr (July 27), while Shahrukh Khan has locked Happy New Year release for Diwali, and Aamir Khan’s P.K. will come out on Christmas.
Much to look forward to this year.
