After much controversy surrounding Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, it is finally releasing on Diwali weekend as planned, right alongside Ajay Devgn’s second directorial venture Shivaay, giving stiff competition between the two movies.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (with a “cameo” by Pakistani Actor Fawad Khan) brings popular director Karan Johar back to the helm and promises to be an engrossing drama typical of KJo’s productions. Sizzling chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and the leading ladies along with popular songs adds an extra sheen on the movie.
Shivaay on the other hand, looks completely unique with a different style and location, a big change from run-of-the-fodder movies that Bollywood is overflowing with. Although star power rests solely on the shoulders of Ajay Devgn, newcomers are also being launched, out of whom one may become a star. Shot in Bulgaria, Mussoorie and Hyderabad, the visuals released of Shivaay have all been eye-catching and captivating.
According to trade experts, both films have been well hyped and stand an equal chance of success. Reports say that advance bookings for both movies have been “phenomenal.” Analysts have even predicted that both movies will join the Rs 100 crore club.
