Talking about the clash, he told Etimes, “I am just taking feedback. People are talking to me positively about the film. They are saying that finally, somebody dared to release the film on the same day as Shah Rukh’s film.” While that may sound like a clarion call for an inevitable clash, Santoshi makes it clear that he’s not competing against SRK. He says, “I would like to say that I am not releasing my film against his film. I am releasing my film along with his film. Both films are different from each other in look and scale. We are not clashing with his film. We are releasing our historic film on a historic day.”
Santoshi’s last directorial — Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’cruz’s romantic comedy Phata Poster Nikla Hero in 2013 — got a decent response from the audience.
He will also direct Mithun Chakraborty’s son Namish Chakroborty and Amrin Qureshi’s debut Bollywood filmBad Boy .The official release date of the film is still awaited
