History is all set to repeat itself. In 2007, the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’ and Rajinikanth’s ‘Sivaji : The Boss’ had clashed on the same day, and now once again Big B’s ‘Bhootnath Returns’ and Rajinikanth’s ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ are slated to release on the same day- April 11.
As per sources, “With the release dates of their films now confirmed, it will be interesting to see the legends take on each other at the box office. The two stars have fans across the globe and their film’s collections will be followed closely.”
Sources further added, “It is well-known that when Rajinikanth’s film releases, it is festival time for his fans. The shows begin as early as 5 am especially in South India and often people burst crackers, beat drums and throw flowers at the screen before the show. The movie’s reel is also worshipped at temples. So this clash is surely an interesting development.”
‘Bhootnath Returns’ is a sequel to Big B’s 2008 horror comedy ‘Bhootnath’, while ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ is a period drama that has used state-of-the-art technology with Rajinikanth reprising his larger-than-life persona. It also stars Deepika Padukone and will be released in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Bengali and Punjabi across 6,000 screens, in addition to an international version in English.
It will surely be an interesting clash at Box Office this April.
