Vivek Oberoi hopes his two films will not release together

MUMBAI: A few days ago it was reported that the makers of Vivek Oberoi‘s two upcoming films, Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story and Kismet Love Paisa Dilli (KLPD), are at loggerheads because both the films were set for 5 October release.

Though the makers Kumar Taurani and Amit Chndra have not resolved the clash yet, the actor hopes one of the producers will move ahead while the other’s film would release. The 35-year-old actor is hopeful that there will be an amicable solution.

Promotion of KLPD is on while that of Jayanta Bhai is set to begin soon. "They (Amit Chandra) may have started their promotions but we too would be beginning by the month end. We just need a few weeks of some really intense promotion to get us going. We are not backing out for sure. Our posters are ready, the first cut of the film is in place as well. If there is going to be a clash on 5 October, so be it," said Taurani in a statement.

Oberoi, last had a release two years back, when Ram Gopal Varma‘s Rakht Charitra Part I and II released in quick succession but both failed at the box office.

Amit Chandra understands the situation and empathises with Vivek. "It is not great for two films to release on the same day; it is not going to benefit either Kumarji or me. I have requested him that he moves on and hopefully he would."

However, Taurani feels that since he announced the film‘s completion first, it was his right to arrive in theatres first. "We were just about to start the publicity of our film when out of nowhere I heard Amit announcing his film‘s completion. However, he didn‘t even talk to me and just said that I should move ahead. It has to be seen who amongst the two of us would budge from the stand."

Chandra is firm on the release date as he thinks 5 October is the perfect date for him.
