Salman Khan’s ‘Ready’ will clash with his one time love Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ when both the movies hit theaters. Though it was known that ‘Ready’ is going to complete soon but nobody imagined that ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ would also release simultaneously on May 27, 2011. Anyway, the two movies belong to two different genres, so the audiences’ interests won’t collide, hopefully. While ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ is a fun, youthful film with Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin, ‘Ready’ is a family entertainer with Asin as Salman’s co-star. In the same way, while Akhtars’ ‘zindagi…’ will hit multiplexes as it’s urban-oriented, ‘Ready’ is largely meant for masses, and will be exhibited on single screens.
Significantly, the issue isn’t between Salman and Katrina. In fact, it concerns Salman and Hrithik! You may recall Salman’s recent taunt that "not even a dog went to see ‘Guzaarish’. And, ‘Guzaarish’ is Salman starrer. After the debacles of ‘Kites’ and ‘Guzaarish’, Hrithik must have been looking forward to a solo release but unfortunately he is now up against ‘Dabangg’ Salman. Interestingly, neither Sallu’s director Anees Bazmee nor Hrithik’s director Zoya Akhtar has come out in the open.
Isn’t it strange that the onetime love words will soon clash at the box office?
