Come this Friday, and the real life couple Abhay Deol-Preeti Desai are coming to woo the moviegoers with One By Two, coming out Friday. The makers of the movie will be relieved of the fact that Salman Khan’s highly anticipated release failed to make much impact at the Box Office. The love story, which has been directed by Devika Bhagat, revolves around a couple who meet each other while living in Mumbai. They are fed up with their lives and want their situations to change desperately.
The film which is made on tiny budget of just 15 crores is looking at a good business opportunity.
“If Jai Ho had done well, it would have been very tough for the next film to do well. So this will be beneficial for One By Two,” says Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines.
The film, which will hit approximately 1,000-1,200 screens all over India, it is also the debut production of Abhay’s banner – i e Films. He has co-produced the film with Viacom 18.
The actor has hardly promoted the film, a norm nowadays. The movie, however, made news due to the tiff between Abhay and T-series regarding the delay in the marketing and music launch of One By Two.
Abhay, who walked the red carpet at an award function with a made up black eye signifying helplessness, brought out the controversy in the open.
Singers like Kailash Kher, Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan and composers such as Vishal Dadlani and Ehsaan Noorani hailed Abhay’s courageous outburst against the music label. However, T-series denied all accusations calling them baseless.
The fight was resolved when Viacom 18 Motion Pictures sent out a press statement saying that everything has been sorted out
