Priyanka Chopra is all set to fire at Box office in 2008
If all her film releases stick to plan, November 2008 may will turn out to be the busiest month ever for Priyanka Chopra. The reson being that she has two of her films lined for release this winter. Worse, both these films arrive within a fortnight of each other. This means that if there is no change in the plans, it would create a record for a mainstream leading lady to see two huge releases arriving back to back.
The films in question are director Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion, which is set for a November 14 release, followed by Dostana which will have its D day on November 21. Though Bhandarkar and UTV had made their intentions quite clear long time back about Fashion’s release date, the announcement of Karan Johar’s Dostana has comes as a surprise. With both films being biggies and with such huge money involved, it certainly doesn’t look like a good business decision to have both films eating into each other’s business, especially as they have the same leading lady.
While Fashion revolves around Priyanka, with Kangana Ranaut, Mugdha Godse and Arjan Bajwa providing her ample support; Dostana has three leading men Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Bobby Deol, along with Priyanka. An interesting sidelight is that the film Victory, which stars Priyanka’s boyfriend, Harman Baweja, is also slated for a November 14 release, making it a lover’s clash at the box office. On the other hand, it may well lead to trouble in paradise for the father son ‘jodi’ of the Bachchans as Abhishek’s Dostana would be clashing with the Big B’s Aladdin and the Mystery of the Lamp on November 21. Yes, we can already see some huge juggling around the release dates this November!
