Ex-lovers set for box office clash!

New Delhi, April 23 -- Although they never confirmed their relationship officially, actors Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra had the rumour mills buzzing with their hush-hush affair during the shooting of their film, Kaminey (2009).

Now, after their alleged break-up, the two are slated to clash at the box office with their respective films during the October 2 weekend.    

Trade experts say this move could affect their films' box office collections. "If two films - regardless of the stars that feature in these - are released on the same date, the business will get affected," says trade analyst Taran Adarsh.    

While the release date of Priyanka's film (Mary Kom biopic) was made public a few days ago, makers of Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider, starring Shahid, have now announced the same weekend as their release date, too.

Ad guru Prahlad Kakkar suspects it to be a marketing stunt. "It could be the figment of a publicist's imagination. But a movie-goer won't think about such things before buying the tickets. Plus, both films are completely different from each other," Kakkar says.
