Many fans are anticipating two new Bollywood movies that are expected to release next year, Shahrukh Khan’s “Happy New Year” and Ranbir Kapoor’s “Jagga Jasoos.” It looks like viewers will have a tough choice between the two movies since both the actors are set to go head-to-head again at the box office as they are both expected to release their movies on Diwali 2014.

DNA India reported that Shahrukh Khan is keen on releasing Farah Khan’s movie, “Happy New Year,” on Diwali 2014 as he feel it’s a family entertainer while Kapoor wants Diwali as his next big release “Bombay Velvet” is set to release on Christmas next year.

Kapoor’s “Sawaariyan” and Khan’s “Om Shanti Om” previously had a battle at the box office as both movies released at the same time a few years back.

“Jagga Jasoos” recently casted Govinda to play Kapoor’s father in the film which could bring in more viewers, however, “Happy New Year” reunites Khan with Deepika Padukone who recently had a huge success with “Chennai Express” and “Om Shanti Om.”

As for the leading lady of Kapoor’s film, it is rumored that his girlfriend, Katrina Kaif was offered the role in the movie, however, nothing has been confirmed. Kapoor and Kaif have previously worked together in Prakash Jha’s “Raajneeti” and Rajkumar Santoshi’s “Ajab prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” and have been dating ever since. Another possibility for the leading lady in the movie is Priyanka Chopra since she shares a great friendship with director Anurag Basu after filming “Barfi!”

For Farah Khan’s long term project, SRK will be playing the role of a psycho lover and Padukone will play the heroine of the film, a dancer, playing a Marathi girl while Jackie Shroff plays the villain.

Besides SRK and Padukone as lead roles in the film, Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood, Vivaan Shah and Boman Irani will be seen in the movie as well.
