Issue for shared screens with Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan says the issue over the allotment of screens for the release of Ekta Kapoor‘s ‘Once Upon A time In Mumbai Dobaara‘ is a little unfounded as ‘Chennai Express’ producers UTV did make way for Balaji’s request.Shobha Kapoor, who released Akshay Kumar starrer Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara a week later on August 15, had expressed disappointment with UTV over the sharing of screens.
Shah Rukh said the commitment from the producers at UTV was well clarified with the makers of Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara! and he was not involved in any discussion. “Our film was earlier supposed to release on Thursday, it then got shifted to Friday, a week means seven days and everyone has the right to run their film for seven days. So seven days got over and we gave them the theatres on Friday. If there is an issue or complaint about this, I think it is little unfounded,” he said.
