The clash between the two biggies, Karan Johar's Kurbaan and Priyadarshan's De Dana Dan, has been averted. Initially, the two films were supposed to battle it out on the same date, November 27, but now the release dates have been altered.

Kurbaan will come a week earlier, on November 20, while De Dana Dan will stick to it’s original date, November 27.

"That's true," Siddharth Roy Kapur of UTV, which holds the rights of Kurbaan, said. "Haven't we noticed time and again that such clashes don't benefit anyone? So, instead of battling it out with each other, we decided to re-schedule our release and bring it one week before. That way we won't be eating into each other's business." A wise move!
