The movie-theatre business is at its wit’s end, thanks to the pandemic. In this already difficult time, the last thing producer Boney Kapoor wanted was S.S Rajamouli snatching away his release date.
Boney Kapoor had apparently chosen October 13th, 2021 as the release date for his production ‘Maidaan’, about six months ago. Now sources reveal that director and screenwriter S.S. Rajamouli has chosen the same date for his directorial venture ‘RRR’. Both the movies may have completely different storylines, however, they do have a common factor-Ajay Devgn!
Ajay being a part of both the movies, had supposedly asked Rajamouli to talk to Boney Kapoor before officially announcing RRR’s release date. According to an informed source, “Ajay is aware that his prestigious bio-pic Maidaan on football legend Syed Abdul Rahim was due in the Dussehra week this year. He very specifically told Rajamouli to speak to Boney Kapoor before announcing his release date. But Rajamouli went ahead without consulting Boney.”
Justifiably so, this event angered Boney. He stated “Of course I am upset! This is most unethical. I announced my release date for Maidaan six months ago. At a time when we should all be coming together to save the movie industry, he (Rajamouli) has gone and done this,”
Will a solution be formulated for this matter? Or will we witness a box office battle between the two Ajay Devgn starrers? Only time will tell!
