It will be Kangana Ranaut versus Hrithik Roshan once again, but this time at the Box office.
The Bollywood actor duo are all set for a clash in the professional sphere, as their upcoming ventures ‘Mental Hai Kya’ and ‘Super 30’, are set to release on the same day on July 26. The maker of ‘Mental Hai Kya’ recently confirmed the date.
Earlier, Hrithik’s ‘Super 30’ was supposed to release on January 26 this year, the same day as Kangana’s ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’.
But later, ‘Super 30’ was pushed back to July 26. The decision was taken after director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual assault by a woman who worked under the now dissolved Phantom Films.
But it seems the clash wasn’t averted after all, now the Kangana’s ‘Mental Hai Kya’ release date has been pushed from July 21 to 26.
Balaji Motion Picture’s head Ekta Kapoor refuted rumours of the clash being deliberate and stated that the team decided to push the release June 21 to July 26 purely for ‘business prospects’.
She said, “My decision my film. So all brickbats directed to me please! I am my own person!”
“We have been advised to shift the release of our film to July 26, purely for the business prospects. On knowing, that there is already a movie scheduled for a release on that date, we did it all in our purview to ensure that there will be no mudslinging and it will be dignified release. We stand by assuring that to all other parties,” she added.
“The shift in the release date is a decision taken after the recommendations from the distributors, trade analysts and top research team,” Ekta further added.
