Now we all know that Anurag Basu’s Kites is releasing on May 21 and Mani Ratnam’s Raavan on June 18. But what not many know is that Mani-Sir wanted Basu’s date!
The decision was left to Reliance BIG Pictures, who has bankrolled both films and who naturally wanted a gap between these biggies. They decided to go ahead with Kites first as the film has been waiting a long time.
But the decision hasn’t gone down well with Mani-Sir. We tried contacting Sanjeev Lamba, CEO of BIG Pictures but he didn’t take our calls and also refused to revert to our SMSes.
