Anil Kapoor before Ajay Devgan . Or so it seems as far as the Indian boxoffice is concerned. The mad rush to catch a relatively uncrowded Friday has reached a frenzy in the film industry.
Releases are being pulled out and re-scheduled at the eleventh hour.We now hear Anees Bazmi’s comedy Paagalpanti which was to release early next year, will now release on 22 November this year. while the grand historical Taanaji The Unsung Warrior slated for release in December has now been moved to January 10.
The reason for the shift is practical and commercial.
Says a well-placed source from T series(who are producers on both projects), “After Total Dhamaal a really crazy comedy featuring Anil Kapoor is just what audience needs to drive away its blues.T series knows it’s got a winning project on their hands.As for Taanaji the film is a huge historical with a staggering canvas. The special affects in the war scenes will take longer than the producers thought. Jaldi kya hai?(what’s the hurry?). Besides, Ajay Devgan already has two big releases this year: Total Dhamaal(which is already released and declared a superhit) and De De Pyar De(which opens in May 2019).”
