There is no clash between Khiladi 786 and Talaash: Himesh Reshammiya
The monsoon of clashes that began with the simultaneous release of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ajay Devgn’s Son of Sardar will be carried forward with the release of the Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash: The Answer Lies Within and Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi 786 though the films will be released within a week of each other on 30 November and 7 December respectively.
However, Khiladi 786 producer Himesh Reshammiya denies any rift or clash with the Aamir Khan film. Since both these big ticket films release within a week of each other, the industry was abuzz that we would see a repeat of the Diwali clash between Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar over single screens.
However Himesh refutes such talks by observing, “Co-producers and distributor Eros International have written agreements with all the single screens owners (Mumbai, Delhi, UP etc) we need on our release day.”
Himesh, who has also acted in this film besides giving the music, says, “ This apparent clash is more a media creation, for both the films are not releasing on the same day like it happened for the Diwali clash. These days, most bookings are done for the first week only and only 10 to 15% of them remain in the second week. So where does the issue of a clash come up?” he asks.
Khiladi 786 will release all over India in around 2500 screens.
