Box office clashes are becoming a norm in Bollywood. The director Anees Bamzee has said that he will release his forthcoming film Aankhen 2 next year in Diwali. Interestingly that date has already been booked by Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again.
The makers of Ankhen 2 announced the star cast of the film yesterday. The sequel to Aankhen will star Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Arshad Warsi and Ileana D’Cruz.
“We will start shooting next month. We are planning a Diwali release next year. It’s a big film so it has to come on a special day,” Anees told PTI.
This will set up a clash between Aakhen 2 and Golmaal Again which will feature Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Tusshar Kapoor, Paresh Rawal and Rimi Sen in lead roles.
This year too, two big films are locking horns at the box office on the festive occasion, with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ajay’s Shivaay scheduled to release on October 28.
