SS Rajamouli, on Monday (January 25), announced the release date of his highly-awaited movie, RRR starring Jr. NTR, and Ram Charan in the leading roles. The announcement came as a massive boost for the cinema industry which is struggling to get big stars movies after the lockdown lifted.
While the fans of RRR and cinema owners rejoicing this hot announcement, producer Boney Kapoor has expressed his disappointment on the release date of RRR and called it "unethical". FYI, Boney Kapoor had already announced the release date for his production's "Maidaan" a long time ago, which is October 15.
"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", says Boney according to Bollywood Hungama.
Meanwhile, Ajay Devgan, who is playing a lead role in Maidaan and also plays an important role in RRR, had reportedly told Rajamouli to speak to Boney before announcing the RRR release date. However, it looks like Rajamouli didn't discuss this issue with Boney and gone one step ahead by announcing the arrival date of RRR which is October 13 during Dussehra week this year.
Would this clash of two big Devgn starrers be avoided? No one can say as of now, but one thing is sure that we are on a treat to witness the biggest clash of the year at the box office which is a need of the hour for cinemas.
