Bollywood has turned into a battlefield with increasing number of movies clashing with each other at BO. It all started with DILWALE VS BAJIRAO MASTANI at the fag end of 2015. Then, year 2016 came with a baggage of clashes. While some tried to face the competition and couldn't survive, some others like Shah Rukh Khan's RAEES averted the clash with Salman Khan's SULTAN. Now yet another monster clash is on its way between Karan Johar's AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL V/S Ajay Devgn's SHIVAAY. However, these clash of titans instead of doing some good only created rivalry and hostile environment in the industry.
But it seems the newest clash between two upcoming films SAANSEIN – The last Breath and ROCK ON 2 will bring a certain relief in the otherwise warring Bollywood. The Rajniesh Duggall-Sonarika Bhadoria starrer SAANSEIN and Farhan Akhtar-Shraddha Kapoor's ROCK ON 2 are set to arrive on the same date. Both the films are releasing on November 11, 2016, but this is not just another BO clash that we have been witnessing of late. As both the flicks belong to two different genres – SAANSEIN being 'horrance' (horror romance) and ROCK ON 2 a musical drama. Both have their respective market and niche. Since both the films cater to different set of audiences, it would be a win-win situation for all the parties concerned with the film business and a double bonanza for the patrons.
It was way back in 2001, when we saw a major clash between Aamir Khan's LAGAAN and Sunny Deol's GADAR – Ek Prem Katha arriving on the same day and doing staggering business and since then we haven't really seen two films hitting the screens on the same time & doing exceedingly well.
Let's see if SAANSEIN and ROCK ON 2 clash can repeat the history and bring smile on all the faces!
