Remember we had reported that the Chopra sisters, Priyanka and Parineeti were all set to clash at the box office on September 5, with their respective film releasing on the same day.
Yes, Dawaat-e-ishq and Mary Kom had the same release date until few days ago, when YRF decided to shift Pari’s Dawaat-e-ishq to a few weeks later. So now, while Mary Kom releases on 5th Sept, Dawaat-e-ishq will hit theaters on 19th September.
The shift in the date is apparently because the YRF team is planning a new strategy which will take some time for its execution.
Well, whether it’s a marketing strategy or a conscious decision, wethinks the makers have made the right choice by shifting their film’s release date. With all respect, Mary Kom would have crushed Dawaat-e-ishq. It’s clear the latter had zero chance, be it any other movie for that matter. Despite being a women centric flick, with only Priyanka Chopra as the star, Mary Kom has gathered enormous attention and in just two weeks of its trailer it’s up to 4Mil. Now, that’s huge!
Meanwhile, Ouch for Sonam ;-), as Pari’s film releases on the same day as that of Khoobsurat.
