RRR Release Date: “Unethical,” Says Producer Boney Kapoor
As we all know, the movie theatre industry is struggling for survival, and it comes as a shock to know that ace Director S S Rajamouli has chosen October 13, 2021, as his release date for RRR. This is the same date that Boney Kapoor had announced for his production Maidaan 6-months ago.
Even more shockingly, both the movies feature Ajay Devgn in the cast. Apparently, Ajay Devgn told Rajamouli to speak to Boney before announcing the RRR release date.
According to close sources, “Ajay is aware that his prestigious bio-pic Maidaan on football legend Syed Abdul Rahim was due in the Dussehra week this year. He particularly mentioned SS Rajamouli to speak to Boney Kapoor before announcing his release date. But SS Rajamouli went ahead without consulting Boney.”
And now Boney is very, very upset.
In his recent interaction with media, Boney says, “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,”
Would this clash of 2 big Devgn featured be avoided? Post the pandemic crisis, the last thing we need is a box office battles on one Friday when there are so many barren Fridays staring in the film industry’s anxious face.
