Box office clashes are always interesting to witness, and the year 2018 has seen a number of filmmakers trying to avoid a clash for the benefit for both films. However, that is not the case with Anil Kapoor’s children. Harshvardhan and Sonam Kapoor are all set for a clash as their respective films Bhavesh Joshi Superhero and Veere Di Wedding are both releasing on June 1.
The year has seen how Bollywood is working as a collective unit to avoid box office clashes, and working out mutual agreements for the benefit of all films. From Pad Man’s postponement for Padmaavat to Parmanu’s several changes in release dates, there has been several instances that resulted in two prominent movies avoiding a clash at the box office.
Siblings Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Harshavardhan Kapoor are however not perturbed with the impending clash. Both are gearing up for their next ventures hitting the theatres on the same date.
Sonam will be seen in the chick flick Veere Di Wedding, while brother Harshvardhan is all set to feature in his second film, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.
On the big box office clash, Harshvardhan feels the decision of releasing both the films on the same date was a calculated and unemotional move.
“While our trailer released on May 2, we didn’t get the film’s music on time. Also, Vikaram (director) was still finishing the film. We didn’t expect Parmanu to release on May 25, because the makers were fighting a legal battle. With the IPL ending on May 27, June 1 looked like an ideal date. It’s a cleaner space for two films of distinct genres to release,” Harshavardhan told Mid-Day.
It will be interesting to see if Harshvardhan’s theory about the films’ release indeed turns fortunate for both, or the audience vote goes to only one of them.
