Though it is still a few months away, the big Christmas clash — between Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani (BM) and Rohit Shetty’s Shah Rukh Khan- and Kajol-starrer Dilwale— is already a hot topic of discussion in film trade circles. Interestingly, Rohit says that he loved BM’s teaser trailer, and that he is confident that the film will work.

“I saw it (the teaser) in Bulgaria (where he was filming his next last month) when it came out online. My assistant director showed it to me, and I loved it. It’s looking great, and it’s grand. It’s looking like a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. He is a great director, and he has always made movies that boast of a great canvas. So, instead of saying, ‘Kya hai? Kuch bhi nahi hai (what is this? It is nothing)’, I will honestly say that it’s a great promo, and that the film will work,” says Rohit.

But won’t the clash with BM affect his film’s business? “Yes, but everyone comes with their own destiny. Ideally, it (the clash) shouldn’t have happened, but now that it is happening, all we can do is be positive. A lot of circus will happen (laughs). And that circus won’t be from either of the films’ offices, but in the industry and the media, (sic)” says the director.
