New Delhi: It wouldn't be wrong to say that the biggest clash of 2015 didn't have a major affect on the business of ‘Dilwale' and ‘Bajirao Mastani'. If both the films had released separately, they would have raked in much better numbers than they eventually did.

Till Tuesday, Rohit Shetty's ‘Dilwale' has made Rs 130 crores and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Bajirao Mastani', overtaking the SRK-Kajol starrer, collected Rs 131.45 crores, in India.

While the audiences couldn't understand that why these two biggies decided to come out on the same day, the trade was equally clueless. Rohit Shetty has finally opened up and explained the reason behind it.

In an interview with film critic Rajeev Masand, he said, “It was all decided and the whole mathematics behind the team was not to target 18th, 19th, and 20th December. I think even they (‘Bajirao Mastani' team) must have not targeted these days. What we were targeting is the holiday period from 25th December till 4th of January.”

He further said, “25th, 26th, 27th December and 1st, 2nd, 3rd January are holiday weekends. So we were targeting that. But yes, all said and done, if it was a solo release, both the films would have done much better.”

It seems that Rohit has somewhere realized that coming on the same date was a mistake. Well, the cine-buffs too weren't happy with this division of films.
