Film maker Vipul Shah will be confabulating with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan to decide on the strategy for his film London Dreams, reports Mid Day.
The producer-director has been in a fix ever since he realized that both his heroes have Diwali releases lined up.
Now Vipul is hoping that a controversy breaks up for his film that will help him in good stead!
He says, "I am controversy's child. Both my earlier projects, Singh Is Kinng and Namastey London, were embroiled in some problem or the other — from the way the characters were depicted or occurrences during the shoot. I hope someone finds something amiss in London Dreams and raises a voice. That will serve my purpose!" he grins.
Though the censors raised an objection to the reciting of the Hanuman Chalisa during a rock concert in the film's promos, things have now been sorted out.
Salman and Ajay have been promoting their movies (Main Aurr Mrs Khanna and All The Best) in a big way, so having them in the media glare again from next week for London Dreams would definitely be overkill.
"That's true," admits Vipul. "They have appeared in several shows on TV as well as several events to promote their films. We're now left planning a distinct promotional strategy. Thankfully the subjects of their films are different from London Dreams. But I can't do the same stuff the actors did for the promotions of their films."
One idea being floated is that of holding music concerts.
"As the film is about rock musicians, it goes well. But we have not decided the logistics of it yet. It is only when I meet both Ajay and Salman that I will decide. They too should be comfortable going live."
Vipul is also hoping that the Sallu-Ajay pairing (last seen 10 years ago in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam) and Asin's next release after Ghajini (almost a year later) will help lure in the audience.
"I am also directing a film after over two-and-a-half years," he says. So there is still something to look forward to, for the audience."
