Akki's face-off with the Deols
Share |

15/09/10  'Tees Maar Khan' is all set for a big release this Christmas. However, now there is an unlikely contender in the form of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', an all-Deol starrer which has decided to come on the same day. One wonders what do the makers of 'Tees Maar Khan' have to comment on the latest developments.

"We can't help if 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' has decided to release on the same day, right?

We know where we stand though. Most of the shooting for the film is complete and we are neck deep into post production. Also, there has been a pre-booking of more than 1500 prints already. We are pretty much on full throttle here", says Shirish Kunder, the first time producer who has earlier directed 'Jaan-E-Mann'.

"If makers of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' still decide to go ahead then good for them. They would have certainly given it a thought before coming up with an announcement", he goes on to add.

Since the stakes are indeed high for both the films, are the makers contemplating getting into a face to face conversation and solving it all amicably. After all both the films come with a potential of being good money spinners at the box office and the clash won't quite help the cause, especially so for 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' since Deols haven't delivered a successful film for long.

"If they want to come and talk to us, we are game for it. However, we are not going away anywhere", says director Farah Khan who rightly believes that 'Tees Maar Khan' is carrying terrific buzz, especially after her two hugely successful films - 'Om Shanti Om' and 'Main Hoon Naa'.

Though one waits to see if director Samir Karnik, who has also co-produced the film with Nitin Manmohan, is planning to get into any conversation with the makers of 'Tees Maar Khan', an insider says that the clash would definitely be averted.

"It just doesn't make sense at all", he says, "It is impossible to believe that Deols would actually go ahead with Christmas release of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana'. They are talking about it but I am sure their decision making is flexible here. I can foresee the makers of both the films actually sitting across the table and sorting it out. No one benefits from a clash."

Well, one truly wishes that this happens indeed. In the time when industry is going through an upheaval, the two biggies arriving on different dates is only going to add on to the celebrations.
