Clashes are not new in Bollywood. They keep happening every now and then. However, 1st June 2018 is going to witness an unusual clash at the box-office as brother Harshvardhan Kapoor will take on sister Sonam Kapoor Ahuja as their respective films ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ and ‘Veere Di Wedding’ are all set to arrive in cinemas on the same date. Since both films are highly awaited by the audience, the clash between them will certainly eat into each other’s box-office earnings.
In dystopian vigilante film ‘Bhavesh Joshi’, Harshvardhan plays the role of an unusual superhero that fights for righteousness and against corruption. Helmed by ‘Udaan’ (2010) fame Vikramaditya Motwane and produced by Phantom Films in association with Fox Star Studios and Reliance Entertainment, the film was initially slated to release on 25th May 2018. But to provide a better release with maximum screen counts, the makers shifted the film back to June 1, 2018.
But if latest reports are to be believed, both the parties are in discussion to try and avoid the box-office clash on 1st June. If they agree, one film might be postponed to some other date. Well, in this scenario, it will be interesting to see which film decides to bow out of the battle – ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ or ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
Starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker, Shikha Talsania and Sumeet Vyas in important roles, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ is helmed by Shashanka Ghosh. It is produced by Rhea Kapoor, Nikhil Dwivedi, Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor.
