Dilwale vs Bajirao Mastani at box office: SRK, Bhansali’s face-off again after eight years
Shah Rukh Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s seven year old box office battle continues.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has ruled many a hearts with his romantic movies, will soon have a face off with ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The duo once created a stir in the Indian cinema history by releasing their larger than life films ‘Saawariya’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’ together eight years back on November 9, 2007.
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol have re-united for Rohit Shetty ‘Dilwale’ to give a tough fight to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama ‘Bajirao Mastani’ starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
SRK-Bhansali clash goes long back to their Diwali releases in 2007. While SRK launched Deepika Padukone in the Farah Khan directed film ‘Om Shanti Om’, Bhansali also gave Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor a grand platform for their debuts. Unfortunately, it was a setback for Bhansali’s film as it was swept away by SRK-Deepika’s onscreen chemistry.
SRK has always been particular about opening his movies at maximum screens – multiplexes or single screens. Even in the case of ‘Om Shanti Om’ which had guest appearance by as many as 30 guest stars in the song ‘Deewangi’, SRK booked 878 cinema halls in 200 prints worldwide.
