Big budgets. Big directors. Big stars. With “Dilwale” and “Bajirao Mastani”, both much-awaited Bollywood cinematic extravaganzas, releasing together on Friday, industry experts believe the clash will have a strong impact on the overall collections of the year. However, it’s best not to expect a new record!

“There is another film releasing with our film, so we are not expecting an opening weekend record. But it’s a working weekday businesswise. Had it released on December 25, it would have been different as it would have been a holiday and there would have been 20-30 percent more business,” he said.

“But December 18 is a normal working day with two films releasing. I don’t think any of the films will have an opening record as such.”

“But I think there is a lot of breathing space for both the films as there are no big movies releasing for the next few weeks,” Shah Rukh said, adding that he is happy with the “fantastic advance bookings” for “Dilwale”, which is directed by Rohit Shetty.

The movie has all elements of an “in-the-face” commercial Bollywood entertainer laced with action, rib-tickling comedy, fresh pairing of Kriti Sanon and Varun Dhawan, the loved ‘jodi’ of Kajol-SRK, and scenic landscapes of Bulgaria, Iceland and Goa.

This is pitted against “Bajirao Mastani”. A quintessentially Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, this one promises to be an intense visual cinematic treat showcasing snippets from the past, with battle scenes, costumes exuding a historical feel, and palatial sets.
