These are the very thoughts that come to minds looking at the recent developments with the release of Bombay Velvet. The movie that was supposed to hit the theatres the same time as Aamir Khan’s PK will now release on November 28th. PK on the other hand, will release as planned on December 19th.
Ranbir, not sounding too obvious made a statement last night at the wrap up party of Bombay Velvet – “I think it is correct release date as we will get more theatres. We don’t want to clash with another film as it affects the business of a film. It is the best film. And we hope the audience will like the film” he said.
Directed by Anurag Kashyap, the film captures the old charm of Bombay and how the city emerged to be one of the biggest metropolises of India.
“Anurag has made this film with lot of hard work and love. It has been a dream of Anurag for nine years. We hope wider audience sees this film as it is an entertaining and engaging film” Ranbir added.
With all due respect to the efforts, the media now wonders if Aamir Khan indeed holds a fear factor in the hearts of other actors. Mr Perfectionist who signs a film a year, Aamir’s presence at the ticket counters unanimously gathers more response than all the other films put together. While PK team has not promoted the movie much, it sure looks like another winner, with a single factor called Aamir agreeing to play the central protagonist.
