Very often have we seen a clash between the release dates of two big films. Some recent examples are Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale last year, and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay this year. But now, it looks like two big films are all set to clash with their similar plots! Reports suggest that Nikhil Advani’s Lucknow Central and Yash Raj Films’ upcoming production have plots that revolve around the same story.
Producer Nikhil Advani recently announced his upcoming film, titled Lucknow Central. The film which stars Farhan Akhtar and Kriti Sannon in lead roles, talks about a group of jail inmates who form a music band. Apparently, the film which will be based in Lucknow, is based on true incidents.
Two Movies With The Same Story
On the other hand, YRF also recently announced their upcoming production which will showcase prisoners forming a band of their own. As we earlier told you, this movie, which is to be directed by the Daawat-E-Ishq director Habib Faisal, will also be launching 5 newcomers into the industry. One of them is Danyal Zafar, the younger brother of actor Ali Zafar.
The cache here is that since Advani had announced his film quite a while ago, Lucknow Central will be going on floors next month. Whereas Yash Raj’s film is still in the initial stages of inception.
One Will Succeed, The Other Will Lose
According to history of Bollywood, this is not the first time that two films are being made on same concepts. In 2002, 5 movies based on the life of Indian freedom fighters released on the same day. Needless to say, in such conditions all the films bear the loss of the situation.
In fact, next year B-town is gearing up for another such clash. While Ajay Devgn is ready with his film Sons Of Sardaar: The Battle Of Saragarhi, Rajkumar Santoshi will release Battle Of Saragarhi starring Randeep Hooda in lead role.
