‘Talaash’ pushes ‘Shootout At Wadala’ release to 2013May 2nd, 2012 - 4:13 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 2 (IANS) Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta, who is busy filming underworld drama “Shootout At Wadala”, says he has pushed the film’s release to next year as he does not want it to clash with “Talaash” and “Dabangg 2″.
“Our original release date was Dec 7. Later ‘Talaash’ was announced for Nov 30 release. So it’s obvious that when an Aamir Khan full-fledged mainstream film releases after almost three years, distributors and exhibitors will block the theatres for at least two weeks,” Gupta said at an event here Tuesday.
“Next will be ‘Dabangg 2′, which has been announced for Dec 24. So we had to look for a later date because ‘Shootout…’ is also an equally big film. We are mature to understand that let’s not eat into each other’s business,” added the director who has made films like “Kaante”, “Zinda”, “Dus Kahaniyaan”.
An screen adaptation of Mumbai police’s first registered gun battle, “Shootout At Wadala” stars John Abraham as gangster Manya Surve and also has Anil Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Manor Bajpayee, Tusshar Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut in the cast.
