“We have no competition with ‘Teen Patti’. We have only 52 Fridays in a year and with the Indian Premiere League (IPL) and other events that go on in a year, there are only a certain number of weeks that are good for a film’s release,” said Sidhwani.
The producer also stressed on the strategy to make a film exciting enough to enthuse the viewer to come and watch it at the theatre.
“You have multiple films releasing on the same day, so one needs to create some kind of a demand and mystery about your film. If you manage to convince the audience that this is something different, you need not worry about any competition,” he said.
While “Teen Patti” stars Amitabh Bachchan as a mathematician, Farhan Akhtar plays the role of an introvert in “Karthik Calling Karthik”.
