No theatres for Vashu Bhagnani , Shailendra Singh postpone the release of their films
The rush of releases this festive season is taking its toll on the box-office. Three films proved too much of a burden for the theatres to bear this Dussehra season. Two of the scheduled films, the late Shamim Desai’s Rush and Sanjay Gadhvi’s Ajab Gazabb Love have now been postponed from their scheduled Wednesday release this week (24 October) to Friday 26 October.
While confirming this last-minute postponement of what was seen as a lucrative box-office window for an extended weekend from Dussehra on Wednesday to Bakrid on Friday, the Rush producer Shailendra Singh and Ajab Gazabb Love producer Vashu Bhagnani remained tightlipped about the real reasons for the last-minute postponement.
However, sources from both production houses confirm that the two scheduled film had to be postponed by two days due to a paucity of theatres.
A reliable source on condition of anonymity revealed, “Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year which was released on Friday has monopolized both the single theatres and single theatres all across the country. Going by the favourable response to Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year, and the fact that another potential biggie Prakash Jha’s Chakravyuha is scheduled for Wednesday, Vashu Bhagnani and Shailendra Singh had emergency meetings this weekend. They’ve decided to move their films forward by two days.”
While Bhagnani wouldn’t comment on why his film has been postponed Shailendra Singh of Percept said, “Rush is our premium product. We wanted it to be just right. We’ve been burning the midnight oil working on an unusual background score for the film. We hoped our music would be completed by this weekend. But it has taken longer than we expected. Hence the delay by two days.”
