Now this was totally unexpected but it is happening. Ram Leela, the promo of which has just been unveiled, was all set to enjoy a solo release in the coming festive season. However, the film would now have company, what with Kangna Ranaut's Rajjo all set to clash with the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's musical drama.
"Makers of Rajjo, M.H. Shah and U.A. Karande, were waiting for an apt time to bring the film. Though Kangna plays a prostitute in the film, it isn't a grim affair by any means. Instead, it is a colourful affair as well and joins Ram Leela in painting the screen red. Pun intended," informs the source who called to share the developments.
"To arrive a week or two later was explored as well. After all, Ram Leela could well be a formidable opponent for anyone. However, once the final cut of Rajjo was seen by people concerned, there was an added sense of confidence. It was felt that the originally decided date would be just right to set the stage for 'Rajjo' v/s 'Leela'," the source continues.
With Kangna as well as Deepika playing title roles in their respective films, there would be an unlikely clash in the offering.
Says Kangna, "Rajjo is really close to my heart and I am glad it is being released this festive season. As for competition with other films, there would be one every week in any case. I am sure my producers are taking a good call and it comes from the trust and confidence they have in the product. I am particularly proud of the film and my work. The film is special and it will fetch an audience of its own. I strongly believe in director Vishwas Patil and music director Uttam Singh. Once you see the promos, which would be out very soon, you would know what I mean."
While one looks forward to the first look of Rajjo being unveiled, Eros is gung ho about Ram Leela and is all set to further raise the ante for their Ram Leela.
