Clashes at box office have become very common in Bollywood these days. On most occasions, it has become almost unavoidable. So, Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Thackeray is going to the release on the same date which is 25th January, 2019. By the makers of Thackeray, it has been said few days ago that they like to have a solo release on 25th January. Due to this reason, they want to clear the date. Thackeray is a movie that is a biopic on the life late Shiv Sena founder Bala Saheb Thackeray.
Regarding clearing dates for Thackeray, Kangana has said “No one has told us to shift our release date and in fact, no one has approached us. It’s a big window and I think two films can easily release. There was no pressure” during music launch of the Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi. In this movie, Danny Denzongpa, Ankita Lokhande and Taher Shabbir will be seen also apart from Kangana Ranaut.
Previously, Emraan Hashmi starrer Cheat India is going to release on the same date. However, the makers of Cheat India have changed the date now and it will release a week earlier now. According to Kangana Ranaut, couple of movies can release on the same day and do good business together. She has said that anyone from the Thackeray team has not approached her. In the movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhnasi, Kangana will be seen in the titular role who has known in the history for giving a valiant fight to British East India Company. On the other hand, the character of Thackeray will be played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Both Kangana and Nawazuddin are known for their excellent performances in movies. Therefore, we hope for good run at the box office.
