Padmavati Postponement Effect, Fukrey Returns Back To Dec 8

The aftershocks of  Padmavati’s sudden  removal from its release date on December 1 can  be  felt all  the way to Farhan Akhtar and   Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment,  the bountiful production house whose latest film Fukrey 2, a sequel to their 2013 sleeper  hit  Fukrey has been  preponed  from December 15  to December 8.

Explains Ritesh Sidhwani, “It was always meant to be 8 December. Even our teaser said 8th. But we moved  up as Padmavati was shifted to December 1 and we needed a 2-week gap.Now that there  is  no movie on  the  1st we  are  going back to  out original  plan  of  releasing on  8th.”

Fukrey  2  is not the only film planning to make use  of  the space provided by the  exclusion of Padmavati from  the December  schedule. Other  films slated for early 2018 are also  planning to  rush  into December.
