shivaay, ae dil hai mushkil, ajay devgn, karan johar, ranbir kapoor, anushka sharma, aishwarya rai bachchan It’s Shivaay vs Ae Dil Hai Mushkil on October 28 at the box office: How will Ajay Devgn film stack up against Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s? The audience has its say.

Ever since the release dates of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay were announced (October 28), it is not only the filmmakers but even the audience who has been eagerly awaiting their release. We already know that when two big films clash at the box-office, the promotion game is going to be extremely crazy. While the extensive promotion of Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s film has kept the buzz going, Ajay Devgn has not left any stone unturned to make sure that Shivaay does not lose its game against ADHM.

In fact, Ajay Devgn made a smart move to promote the film. From visiting the US office of Facebook to setting Raavan on fire at Delhi’s most popular Ramleela, he has been a one-man army when it comes to promotions. Meanwhile, Ranbir has been at the forefront of ADHM’s promotions.

Watch: Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Vs Shivaay, What Delhites Pick:

 

To find out how excited the audience is about both the films, we asked them on Twitter which film they will be watching this Diwali.  According to the Twitter poll on indianexpress.com, the audience is keener to watch Ajay Devgn-starrer in comparison to Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. In fact, 57 percent said they would watch Shivaay while 43 percent opted for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. A total of 888 votes were polled.

The promotions for both the films have not without incident. It all began when Ajay, on his Twitter account, claimed that self-styled movie critic Kamaal Rashid Khan has taken money from Karan Johar to promote Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Later, Karan Johar and the film found themselves in the middle of a political storm for casting Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in the film. MNS ‘banned’ the film in the aftermath of Uri attack and was adamant that it will not be allowed to release despite a video clarification from Karan Johar. The matter could only be resolved after the intervention of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Find out why Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was in trouble: 

 

We have to wait for October 28, the biggest box-office weekend of the year, to know what eventually happens. We hope both films are winners and we get to have a dhamakedaar Diwali. See you at the movies folks.

                Trailers are always misleading. This is traditional showbiz knowledge. If you sit down to count how many films had spectacular trailers that turned out to be duds, you could fill entire books. Plus, there is nothing of high taste in either film. Beyond the deceptive 'ode to God' baloney, Shivaay in the end is the story of a man bashing up 20 baddies at a time to rescue his kidnapped daughter. Both films are ghisa pita stuff.

                                    I think that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will be better a movie than Shivaay but will earn less because of all the controversy around it bit.ly/2ceaBGl

                                      Old game of making or breaking film by media has already began. Same happened with Hritik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro. It seems in this game media is managed by some invisible forces.

                                        I have a feeling this Diwali is going to be repeat of the 2012 clash. Ae Dil... will be a soppy bore like Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Shivaay will be mindless confusion like Son Of Sardaar (although the two belong to different genres). In the end, fans will realise they were being conned by Bollywood hype all along.

                                          I dont think this poll is accurate. Shivaay is quite thanda. No one is talking about the film. Ae Dil, thanks to all the negative publicity, has atl east generated some buzz. As they say, any publicity is good publicity.
