Even though Friday fever continues to rule Bollywood, two much awaited releases this year --Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger and Anurag Kashyap's Gangs Of Wasseypur are set to hit the screens on a Wednesday.
While the second part of Gangs Of Wasseypur releases on August 8, the Salman-Katrina Kaif starrer will open on August 15 -- both Wednesdays.
Kashyap's ambitious project releases exactly one week before the Yash Raj film, apparently in a bid to capitalise on the Janmashtami holiday occurring on Friday, and concurrently the weekend.
"In case of Ek Tha Tiger, August 15 being Independence day is a national holiday and with Salman at the helm, the returns will be surely high, considering the long weekend. But in case of Gangs Of Wasseypur 2 it is like a case study," said Trade analyst Taran Adarsh .
