It seems that the war between Chennai Express and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara has not come to an end yet. Shahrukh Khan and the makers of Akshay Kumar starer OUATIMD have kept their Iftar party on the same day.
Earlier both Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express and Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara were releasing on the auspicious occasion of Eid. But later the film's producer, Ekta Kapoor decided to reschedule OUATIMD. It is said that Shahrukh is very close to Ekta's father Jeetendra and that's why Jeetendra decided to release the Akshay Kumar starrer on 15 of August instead of Eid. In this way both the movies can do good business at the Box-Office.
Now, both Shahrukh Khan and Ekta Kapoor have decided to keep their Iftar party on the same day to promote their respective films. Talking about the Iftar party, a source told a leading daily, "Shahrukh Khan and producer Ekta Kapoor may have averted a clash at the Box-Office but it looks like they are not ready to give up on the competition too soon. They have arranged their respective Iftar bashes to promote their films on the same day and almost at the same time. This situation has put people in a tight spot as they now have to rush from Ekta's party at Andheri to Bandra."
Shahrukh Khan has also sent a special invite to the media for his Iftar party.
