Bachchan Starrer Opts Out  After Padmavati Opts In

The two-week postponement  of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s massive opus Padmavati has cost another relatively small but nonetheless important film , its release date.

Umesh Shukla’s Amitabh Bachchan-Rishi Kapoor starrer 102  Not Out has decided to opt out of original release date  of December 1  as now, Padmavati releases on that day.

A  very angry an upset core member of the 102 Not Out crew cries foul. “We had announced  our release date months ago. Padmavati was supposed to  release on 17 November.So we thought  our film was  safe. Now suddenly they  postpone their film by two weeks with no thought  for our inconvenience.”

Apparently Padmavati’s move forward by a fortnight has taken Shukla’s team  by surprise.

“The  initial response was to take them on. But then we decided to not ruin our chances, or theirs. We will come on a different  date,” says  a member  of  the 102 Not Out team.

Director Umesh Shukla confirmed that his film where Mr Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor play father and son, would no longer be released on December 1.
