Now the two of them will be seen together again this Diwali, and I hope they both emerge as winners,” Nihalani adds.
This Diwali, the audience will witness the clash of an unlikely pair of actors – Amitabh Bachchan and Govinda. Throwing all caution to the wind, producer Pahlaj Nihalani has decided to pit his Govinda-starrer Rangeela Raja opposite Yash Raj Films’ Thugs Of Hindostan.
Nihalani claims this is a well thought out, market-based decision. “When a very big film is being released, other releases scamper out. But the fact is, there is room for another entertainer. Those who don’t want to see Thugs Of Hindostan will now have another choice – Rangeela Raja,” he says.
“David Dhawan’s Bade Miyan Chote Miyan featuring Bachchan sahab and Govinda was released on the same Friday. Now the two of them will be seen together again this Diwali, and I hope they both emerge as winners,” Nihalani adds.
