Ekta Kapoor blames SRK, Chennai Express for OUATIMD's box office debacle
With her biggest release of the year, 'Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara' opening to a tepid box office response, Ekta Kapoor is not in a good mood these days. And the Balaji head honcho holds SRK responsible for the debacle.
Trouble started when SRK announced that Chennai Express will release on August 8 despite the fact that Ekta had already called dibs on Eid for the release of her ambitious project OUATIMD. Ekta tried her best to outwit SRK in this battle, even calling in a favour from MNS to make the star tow the line.
"Ekta relented because she was promised something in return. And the bait was the promise that Chennai Express wouldn't come in the way of the big release she had planned for OUATIMD on Independence Day," said the source. But given that Chennai Express set the cash registers ringing, the film's producers decided that making way for OUATIMD will not be profitable.
