RRR vs Maidaan: A major clash of dates made Boney Kapoor's Maidaan team upset
Makers of RRR announced their release date a couple of days ago and it made upset the whole team of Maidaan produced by Boney Kapoor as it clashed the dates.
Both of the films starred Ajay Devgn, so when he got to know about the final date of RRR, he spoke to Boney Kapoor and asked him to talk to SS Rajamouli as RRR is his directorial. Speaking with ET times, Boney said, "Ajay found out about it a day before the announcement was made. He told me that he had told the makers of 'RRR' that they should speak to me as I have already announced that 'Maidaan' would release on October 15. He asked them to sort out the situation, but they chose not to speak to me. This is the reason why Ajay did not tweet or retweet the release date of 'RRR'."
Boney Kapoor has announced Maidaan's date to be October 15, six months ago but the makers of RRR took to their social media accounts to make a big announcement of their release on October 13.
Boney further stated, "I called him yesterday, and he was busy shooting. But he returned my call. He said it was not in his hands because he had played no role in this and it is entirely between the 'RRR' producer and distributors. He said the producer was under a lot of pressure from the distributors."
When asked about what he thinks about Rajamouli's stand, the producer said, "I have no choice but to believe him." Adding to it he said, "I wonder why a Rajamouli film, after 'Baahubali: The Beginning' and 'Baahubali 2:The Conclusion' needs a holiday weekend?"
Maidaan is a biopic of a footballer directed by Badhaai Ho fame Amit Sharma. Speaking of Amit, Boney said that everyone in his team is upset, "I was in Delhi and have rushed to Mumbai to address the situation. I have to talk to my entire cast and crew; they're all upset."
Now, the date of Maidaan has been revised, and it is likely to be released on December 11, 2021.
