Salman Khan challenges Hrithik Roshan to a BO competition
Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan might have had the last word in his and Salman Khan’s ugly war of words on Guzaarish but Sallu hasn’t backed out yet. Salman has once again displayed his unforgiving nature as he has opened attack on Hrithik.
The actor hasn’t taken Hrithik’s ‘preachy’ speech lightly where he stated “It’s not heroic to laugh or make fun of a filmmaker just because his box-office collections are not up there with yours”. And now he has decided to give Hrithik a head-on competition.
All set to give Hrithik a run for his money, Salman has decided to release his film ‘Ready’ on the same as Hrithik’s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.
Confirming the news a source told a daily, “Bhushan Kumar is producing ‘Ready’. And Sallu has managed to convince Kumar that May 27, 2011, which is the day when Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ hits theatres, is the best day for ‘Ready’ to release as well. While the release date for ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ was decided nearly two months ago, Sallu, it seems, met Kumar only after the ‘Guzaarish’ fiasco.”
Kumar even told the daily, “Haan, maine zaroor Salman ke saath discuss kiya tha release date ke bare mein. We met about this last week.”
As to whether it’s a good commercial decision for two big films to release on the same date, Bhushan said, “Kyun nahin? Is there any rule that we can’t come on the same date?”
