Aamir Khan, Anurag Basu and Rajkumar Hirani

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is quite upset with Rajkumar Hirani’s Aamir Khan starrer “Peekay” releasing on the same day as his Ranbir Kapoor ¬†starrer ‘Bombay Velvet’. ‘Bombay Velvet’ is Anuarg’s most ambitious film, and he is not leaving any stone upturned to ensure that it turns into a blockbuster. Anurag has also erected an ornate replica of ’50s Mumbai in Sri Lanka for it.

 


As per sources , Anurag got upset on realizing that Rajkumar Hirani’s Aamir Khan-starrer ‘P.K.’ would also arrive on the same day, a slot booked by him months in advance for ‘Bombay Velvet’ “All it would have taken is a phone call. I heard the rumours and called Raju to tell him that if they were indeed planning a Christmas release to please let me know in advance. At that point, they said there were no such plans.The call never came but three days later, Aamir Khan posted it on his Twitter handle that P.K, that was to open on June 6, had been pushed to December 25, a slot which has proved lucky for him (3 Idiots, Ghajini, Dhoom 3).”

Anurag further added,”It hurts because I respect Raju as a filmmaker and as a person. Apart from being a colleague, he is also a friend. Right now, I am focused on making a spectacular film. I’m not concerned about the marketing blitzkrieg at this point. It’s obvious that both films will be affected if they release on the same day. We may sort that out at a later stage.”

Well do hope the two filmmakers solve their problem as soon as possible.
