Vicky broke the silence on his film Sam Bahadur hitting the silver screen on the same day as Ranbir Kapoor's Animal

"I think that Friday, we are eventually going to hand over our films to the audience. As Ronnie pointed out, in today’s time, we, as an industry, should give the option of multiple films on the same day to the audience. That’s how we will flourish as an industry. We have those many weeks in a year, but as an industry, we cannot limit ourselves to making those many films in a year. We will have to make multiple films and we will have multiple releases on the same day," said Vicky.

Producer Ronnie Screwvala on the clash

Ronnie Screwvala, who is the producer of Sam Bahadur, also shared his thoughts on the same. The producer said 'clash is a thing of the past'. Ronnie added that clash is an old-world thinking in the cinema world.
