Both ‘Dilwale’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ will do good business: SRK
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is convinced that his movie “Dilwale” and Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone-Priyanka Chopra starrer “Bajirao Mastani” will mint moolah at the box office as they have their own audience.
“Both the films are releasing on the same day. If not on the same day, people may watch ‘Dilwale’ later someday. But everybody will be entertained… that I can assure. ‘Dilwale’ is a happy, fun and family entertainer, whereas ‘Bajirao Mastani’ is a historical film. Both are different, both have a different audience and I believe both will do good business,” Shah Rukh said here.
The films will hit the screens on Friday.
