Bajirao Mastani takes on Dilwale  

Who will end up with more screens?


Our Correspondent

As December 18 approaches, the battle between Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani and Rohit Shetty's Dilwale intensifies, primarily with reference to the race to secure more screens and theatres.

According to some reports, Dilwale has managed the larger number of screens. Apparently, Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly stuck a deal with an all-India multiplex chain to allot more screens to Dilwale than Bajirao Mastani. The ratio of screens for Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani is reportedly at 60:40. It was not that way until recently.

Apparently, Rohit Shetty was opposed to the idea of releasing on the same day as Bajirao Mastani. It remains to be seen if his gamble will pay off.
