'KGF: Chapter 1 is not clashing with Shah Rukh Khan's Zero'
...says producer Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment who is releasing the Yash-starrer in Hindi
K.G.F Chapter-1 is being released in five languages and will hit theatres on December 21. Shah Rukh Khan's Zero is also scheduled for release the same day, but the makers of K.G.F are undeterred, says producer Ritesh Sidhwani.
Actor and producer Farhan Akhta,r along with partner Ritesh Sidhwani and the leading cast of K.G.F: Chapter 1, Yash and Srinidhi Shetty, were present at the second trailer release of the film in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Excel Entertainment's Ritesh Sidhwani said, "I don't think it is a clash or a fight for space. I think there is enough space. The reason we're coming out on the same date is because it is an important festive date for the south and we're releasing it in four different South Indian languages. We couldn't have delayed it."
He added, "We're not aiming to go as wide as Zero in the North Indian market. So there will be no clash."
An action period drama based in the Kolar gold fields, it is written and directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner Hombale films.
