The 2018 movie calendar is going berserk, all thanks to Sanjay Bhansali’s delayed opus Padmaavat. As we hear of movies being hastily shifted to safer areas than Republic Day weekend whenPadmaavat opens, we now hear of John Abraham shifting his ambitious true-life story Pramanu from February 23 to March 2.
Interestingly Pari, the eerie thriller featuring Anushka Sharma is also scheduled for March 2. It was earlier scheduled for Feb 9 but was moved forward to February 23 when Neeraj Pandey’s political-espionage drama Aiyaary had to move from Jan 26 to Feb 9 to accommodate Padmaavat when it was suddenly slotted for the Republic Day weekend.
Parmanu and Pari have a common co-producer Prernaa Arora. And this would be the first time when a producer would be competing with herself at the box-office.
