Emraan Hashmi wouldn't have suspected this to ever happen. However unbelievable it is on the cards with Amitabh Bachchan turning out to be his on-screen rival. Though the day is still a little far away but come 8th July and Big B's Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap would be taking on Emraan's Murder 2 in theatres.

"Though it would be a matter of pride for any actor to be in consideration for fighting it out with the legendary actor, the fact is that for Emraan, Big B's announcement of Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap has come as a little too sudden and quick", says a veteran industry insider, "Earlier there was a probability of Ajay Devgan's Singham clashing with Murder 2. However that clash was averted. Now with Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap coming on the same day as Murder 2, 8th July has become interesting all over again."

One waits to see what happens on this day since Amitabh Bachchan v/s Emraan Hashmi clash does make for an interesting episode ahead. The kind of films they do are poles apart and a marked difference in their age groups with generations separating them also means that audience would be keenly awaiting the two to take on each other.

"The clash would be terrific if it indeed takes place", the source adds, "Big B would be returning as an angry man, though much older, with Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap. It would be after years that he would be seen flexing his knuckles and would be seen in the kind of role that his die hard fans want to see him on."

"On the other hand, one can well expect the 'serial kisser' to be back in action with Murder 2 which is being devised as an adult drama", he continues, "After a few relatively sober films in the form of Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji, Crook and Tum Mile, Emraan too is looking at satisfying the expectations of his core fan base which belongs to the gentry. He is going to go all out with Murder 2 and along with his leading lady Jacqueline Fernandez ensure soaring temperatures."

On contacted, Mukesh Bhatt (producer of Murder 2) confirmed that he has no intentions of any change in plans and is sticking by 8th July as the film's release date.

Angry old man v/s the original serial kisser - Now with both actors playing by the image in which they have been loved the most over the years; this clash is surely going to heat up the summer even more.
