The Kahaani 2 team can breathe easy. They no longer need to fear competition—provided there was any in the first place—from Wajah Tum Ho, the erotic thriller with Gurmeet Choudhary and Sana Khan in the lead.
Confirming the sudden development Gurmeet says, “Yes,we took a collective decision om Monday night to postpone the release of Wajah Tum Ho from December 2 to December 16. The main reason is the demonetization. It has had a crippling effect on the middlclass’ buying power. They’ve no money to see movies at the moment.”
I ask Gurmeet how his producers expect the situation to improve in two weeks and if demonetization is affecting boxoffice collections why had Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi done well?
Gurmeet explains, “Actually we’ve full faith in our product. We saw the film the other evening and decided we’ve a winning product on our hands. We’ll pump up the marketing and promotion for two extra weeks to make the film even more viewer-friendly.By then the Indian middleclass’s monetary situation would also improve.”
