While Ajay Devgan is fighting tooth and nail to get his film the maximum publicity to sustain the storm that Jab Tak Hai Jaan would soon prove itself to be, he is failing miserably. The man casted Sonakshi Sinha, the lucky charm actress who makes sure that all the films she touches cross 100 crore, also lassoed Salman Khan for a song and even created a controversy but they will go down for sure.
Talking to a few people I could hardly get a person who will choose Son of Sardar over Jab Tak Hai Jaan and all the people, I spoke to, had a good reason behind their choice. Ashim Sunam, a sports journalist said, “It is after many years that SRK is again doing a romantic film and who would want to miss it over SOS.” Alekhya Bolla, who hails from Andra Pradesh and has watched the original version of Son of Sardar said, “Since it is the remake of Telugu film Maryada Ramanna, I already know the story, hence I would prefer to go for JTHJ this November 13.”
Kaustav Rakshit, a film buff pointed the obvious, “Yash Chopra's last directorial debut! I will not give that a miss over SOS, which I am sure would be another version of Singh is King. So this Diwali I have a date with Katrina, Anushka and Yashji.”
Sanjeev Saini, however was the only one who said that he will go for Son of Sardar as he loves comedy over any other kind of film. That the film will have a number of tickles is sure and he wants to be a part of that. Devgan might just curse the day he decided to release Son of Sardar on November 13 and not prepone or postpone it. However, a number of punjabis are quite excited about the film and who knows Ajay Devgan might just win the war of tickets as no one can really predict the mood of Indians.
