No Fanfare, No Publicity, T Series Quietly Releases Bhansali’s Production

Shockingly, a  Sanjay Leela  Bhansali production  comes to movie theatres  all across  India this week without  any pre-release  publicity. The  film Tuesdays  &  Saturdays is the debut launch  film of  Anmol Thakeria Dhillon  and Jhataleka.Anmol is  the  son  of  actress Poonam Dhillon and producer  Ashok Thakeria. His parents  are  apparently  distressed  about their son’s launch  being so muted and lowkey.

Says  a  source  in the know, “The film’s co-producers T Series insisted on  a theatrical release  when  the digital platform  would have  served the  purpose much better.Now  the newcomers and  their anxious parents are  wondering what  kind of an audience a film with two unknown faces  would get in movie theatres at a time when audiences are staying away  from  even big-budgeted  films.”

 This is  is not the  first film that Bhansali is making with newcomers in the lead. In 2007  Bhansali’s Saawariya launched Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. In 2019  Bhansali  launched his niece Sharmin  Sehgal  opposite Jaaved Jaffri’s son Mizaan in Malaal,a film that was  directed by Mangesh Hadwale.

 Shot entirely in  London, Tuesdays & Fridays tells the story a couple who decide to meet  only on two days  of  the  week. I guess it takes all sorts. The film is  directed by debutant Taranveer  Singh who  served as an assistant on Ayan Mukerjee’s Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.
