‘No War between Jab We Met and No Smoking’ Says Imtiaz Ali

Imtiaz Ali directed movie Jab We Met is coming to the screens on this Friday. On the same day there will be another movie releasing No Smoking. Naturally, both the movies should have some competition between them. However, the directors of the two movies have denied having any war between the movies.

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, No Smoking is coming with a message against smoking. So, the movie has the potential to be appreciated by the viewers. However, the movie has already got some appreciation from Jab We Met director Imtiaz Ali. No Smoking director Anurag Kashyap showed Imtiaz Ali the movie titled No Smoking. Imtiaz Ali is full of praise for No Smoking. He has said that the movie is progressive and innovative.

It seems to be good that two directors are now showing good professionalism even though they are standing against each other in terms of their profession. Now, let us see if Farah Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali can show the same professionalism ahead of their high profile movies Om Shanti Om and Saawariya which are slated for release on the same day.
