So, Ajay Devgn
went all out to promote his Diwali offering Golmaal Again. But was he aware (as
he vacations in Goa) that the producers of Golmaal Again (Reliance, Rohit
Shetty) had driven the public crazy from yesterday? Last night, we brought
you the story of how the public was mystified that what has led to
the Advance Bookings in most multiplexes being virtually CLOSED for
Golmaal Again on Wednesday and Thursday, ever since they went online to book
tickets or flocked to the theatre windows to get them.
A Still From Golmaal Again
Well, quite a few multiplexes until yesterday late evening had opened barely one Audi which means just 4-5 shows of Golmaal Again in contrast to at least 12 (approx) which Ajay would have ideally got on a platter, had he and Golmaal Again's producers not tried to upset the apple-cart of Zee Studios and Aamir Khan's Secret Superstar- which released yesterday, a day ahead of Golmaal Again. We eliminate him from the previous sentence if and only if he had not endorsed Reliance and Shetty's (obstinate) decision.
SpotboyE.com has it from PVR and many other multiplexes that the issue was resolved late in the night and in most places, Team Golmaal was NOT given 70 per cent as they desired.
A Still From Secret Superstar
Rewind: Ab hua yeh tha, Team Golmaal Again wanted the multiplex ratio to tilt in favour of their product, so much so that they were not willing to settle for anything less than 70 per cent- which implied that they told the multiplexes to give only 30 per cent shows to Secret Superstar.
On the other hand, Mr Khan has not created any drama or fuss. He was sitting pretty, with multiplexes strongly believing that Secret Superstar and Golmaal Again should get equivalent number of shows.
At the time of going online, a source from INOX confirmed with SpotboyE.com, "Team Golmaal Again had to rest content with 50:50."
