Boney Kapoor Is Fuming; Know Why

Mumbai: Producer Boney Kapoor has lashed out at the clash between his film ‘Maidaan’ and SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’.

Both films star Ajay Devgn and are scheduled to release on October 15.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Boney said: “We will see how it pans out… It was unethical for those people to announce on the same day, despite the same actor being the main lead of my film and one of the heroes of their film. I would take this to my grave, and it’s almost like stabbing on the back of the hero.”

Boney is of the opinion that Ajay won’t say anything on the matter as he is a gentleman.

“But I know how it feels. Here you have, in your main market, a solo hero picture, and then you have a film where you’ve graciously agreed to do a part with two other heroes. And of course, done by Rajamouli, who has given huge hits; he doesn’t have to wait for festivals. He should have that faith and confidence that ‘my release date itself will create a festival’.”

In an earlier interview, Boney had said that Ajay spoke to Rajamouli to avoid a possible clash of release, but wasn’t told about the announcement until a day before it was made.

The two films deal with different subjects. While ‘Maidaan’ traces the story of legendary Indian football coach Syed Abdul Rahim, RRR deals with two revolutionaries of Independence-era, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem.
