If all goes as planned, Dussehra 2013 will see the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial Ram Leela, headlining Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
It is heard that Shahrukh Khan is planning to block next year’s Dusshera for his ‘Chennai Express’. Buzz has it that the actor had to postpone the film’s release from Eid to Dusshera, so as to avoid clashes with his rival Salman Khan’s untitled flick. What’s interesting is that If ‘Chennai Express’ too releases on Dusshera, Deepika Padukone will have to compete wit herself as she is the leading lading in both the films.
However, nothing is confirmed yet and an official statement is being awaited from both, Shahrukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
The year 2013 looks promising as other festive big releases include Akshay Kumar’s gangster film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai on Eid weekend on August 8, along with Salman’s newest with brother Sohail Khan, Hrithik Roshan- Priyanka Chopra- Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut ‘Krrish 3’ on November 3, 2013 and Aamir-Anushka’s ‘P. K’ on Christmas, December 25, 2013.
Meanwhile, ‘Ram Leela’ is presently under production. The film’s promotional plans are already being set up by Bhansali and promotions will being from August next year.
