A few months ago, the makers of Ra.One took the crucial decision of releasing the film during the festival of lights. Now here's the latest: The producers of Rascals have also decided to release their film in Diwali. Yes, the David Dhawan-directed film, which stars Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn in the lead, will face the mighty Ra.One in the festive week. In fact, the producers of Rascals were unsure whether to clash with a mighty opponent like Ra.One or arrive in another week. But the 5-day weekend is too tempting to miss and also, two films can easily co-exist during the Diwali week. Perhaps, these two reasons may have prompted the producers of Rascals to release their film during the rewarding period.
Shah Rukh has an impeccable track record as far as Diwali is concerned. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenege, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, Mohabbatein, Veer Zara, Don and Om Shanti Om were released in the festive week and each of them proved money spinners at the box-office. Ajay Devgn too has been very lucky as far as Diwali goes. Golmaal Returns and All The Best have proven hits, so Rascals could be a hat-trick
