Rohit Shetty has THIS to say about ‘Sooryavanshi’s clash with ‘Inshallah’ on Eid 2020
Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film ‘Sooryavanshi’, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, has been the talk of town ever since it was announced. While the film was initially slated to hit theatres this December, it was pushed to Eid 2020. Soon after, Salman Khan announced that his Sanjay Leela Bhansali film with Alia Bhatt will also hit theatres on Eid 2020. With the two superstars clashing at the box-office, people have been wondering as to who would switch dates in order to avoid a division in the box-office collections.
Now, Rohit has spoken up about the clash. Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, he said, “There is still a lot of time in that (release of the film). We are not even thinking about the clash. We have just started the shoot and are concentrating only on that. Nowadays, everything is controversial. Even the controversies are losing their charm. Earlier people used to be worried, there are still some who do get worried. But now, a controversy is done and dusted in just 48 hours. So one should just sleep over it and after 48 hours, people’s focus will be on some other controversy.”
A few weeks back also, on the same topic, he had said, “Abhi Ek Saal Baaki Hai, Yeh Wali Eid Toh Jaane De, Phir Agli Eid Ka Sochenge (There is still one year, let this Eid pass. Then we will think of next Eid).”
The shooting of ‘Sooryavanshi’ has started in full flow. However, Salman is still busy with ‘Dabangg 3’ which released on December 20 this year. Once Salman is done with that, then only he will begin the shoot for ‘Inshallah’. So what Rohit is saying is indeed right.
Katrina, in an interview, had said that she thinks Salman wouldn’t clash his film with his good friend Akshay’s film. She is currently busy promoting ‘Bharat’ with Salman which releases this Eid.
