Rohit Shetty on Simmba's clash with Shah Rukh Khan's Zero: Seven days are enough to do great business
Rohit Shetty argued that since Zero was releasing around the Christmas weekend, its makers will be able to capitalise on the holiday business.
Rohit Shetty's upcoming action drama Simmba will be a treat for his fans. As Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan prepare to feature in the newest addition to the Rohit Shetty Cinematic universe, many reports anticipate a clash of sorts with Shah Rukh Khan's Zero, which is scheduled to release on 21 December. Many are predicting that the business of one film might eat into that of the other. Amidst such speculations, Shetty recently clarified that Zero and Simmba may not necessarily 'clash' at the box office.
The director stated that the films had the time limit of almost a week between their respective releases and that, according to Shetty, would be adequate to do good business. He also said that the media was stressing on the matter to 'spice up' the scenario. Shetty based his argument on the fact that the Zero makers would have the advantage of the Christmas holiday, which would automatically bring in considerable business at the box office. "There is no issue with the screen distribution, plans are already in place,” added Rohit.
Simmba is the official remake of Temper, which featured Jr NTR. Singh will be seen as police officer Sangram Bhalerao. Touted to be an all out Rohit Shetty mass entertainer, Simmba also features Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana, and Ajay Devgn in a cameo.
