According to an India Today report, Anurag Kashyap's "Bombay Velvet" trailer is set to release with Rajkumar Hirani's "P.K." on 19 December.
The news is pleasantly surprising considering the tiff the two filmmakers got into earlier this year with respect to the release dates of their films.
Aamir Khan, who is known for launching his films on Christmas Eve every year, had left ace filmmaker Kashyap in shock. "All it would have taken is a phone call. I heard the rumours and called Raju to tell him that if they were indeed planning a Christmas release, they could let me know in advance. At that point, they said there were no such plans," Mumbai Mirror quoted Kashyap.
Aamir, who was reportedly miffed with the director's public statements, took a dig at Madhu Mantena (one of the makers of "Bombay Velvet") at a private party. "Aamir was indirectly taking a potshot at Madhu. He sounded really ticked off, Madhu didn't know which way to look," Mirror quoted an insider.
Clearly, the waging war has now come to a halt and the Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma starrer has been pushed to a May 2015 release. Set in the 60s, the film demands heavy CGI work and so the film has been postponed.
The neo-noir drama is based on historian Gyan Prakash's book "Mumbai Fables" and features Karan Johar in a negative role. The film also stars Raveena Tandon, Kay Kay Menon and Siddhartha Basu in key roles.
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma's maiden production "NH10" trailer is said to have been considered for release with "P.K." by its makers. Director Navdeep Singh of "Manorama Six Feet Under" fame has reportedly committed himself to editing the first look of the film. The film features Sharma, Neil Bhoopalam and Darshan Kumaar in significant roles.
