It's official: Sridevi's debut film moved forward
After fighting tooth and nail to ensure that Sridevi’s comeback vehicle English Vinglish does not budge from its release date September 21, the film’s producers have finally bowed out of the woman-centric race. Leaving the coast clear for Kareena’s heroine on Sept 21 English Vinglish has now moved to October 5.
The decision was taken at a meeting earlier this week attended by the producers, director Gauri Shinde and Boney Kapoor.
Various reasons are being put forward for Sri’s delayed arrival in the theatres. None of them, claim the producers Eros Entertainment and Balki, has anything to do with another heroine-oriented jostling for attention on the same Friday.
Balki says the film is just not ready. “There are three separate versions of the film in Tamil , Telugu and Hindi to be completed. Though we could’ve rushed into release on September 21 we saw no point in it. We’re yet to shoot with Ajith who plays Mr Bachchan’s role in Tamil and Telugu. I am doing that this week. Then we return to post-production work.”
A source from Eros has a completely different explanation for the postponement. “Eros saw too many releases jostling for space in September. Plus we now have our own Chakravyuh directed by Prakash Jha coming in September(on the 12th). Eros with Balki’s consent, took a decision to postpone rather than have two releases from Eros during the same month.”...being a human...
