Anees Bazmee was to release Mubarakan today, long before Indu Sarkar picked a date. So when and how did the clash happen?

Says Anees, “You will have to ask Madhur  Bhandarkar that. We had announced our date three months in advance. The other film kept shifting its time of release to finally land opposite us. ”

Not that Anees is fretting over the competition. “Mubarakan and  Indu Sarkar are completely different experiences, as far as I can see. We are an out and out stress buster comedy. They are a political thriller. Hence I presume it would be intense storyline. They will rely on content, whereas we’ve a terrific plotline as well as a multi-star lineup. Who makes multi-starrers in this day and age? It takes a lot of guts. I want to thank my producers for showing faith in my abilities,” says a confident Anees.

Regarding two or more films coming together, Anees says such clashes are inevitable. “There are only 52 Fridays in the year, while we make close to 300 Hindi films per year. There has to be a conflict of interest. We should ensure that we work amicably in sorting out the release clashes. Don’t release two similar films. I remember David Dhawan’s two films Deewana  Mastana and  Mr & Mrs Khiladi were released on the same Friday. We can’t do that anymore. Releasing Mubarakan and Indu Sarkar on the same Friday is fine. They are as different as Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher,” concludes Anees.
