Apparently, Anurag Kashyap has shifted the release date of his upcoming film to avoid clashing with Ram Gopal Varma's 'Veerappan' and Pooja Bhatt's 'Cabaret'

Recently we had reported that Anurag Kashyap's 'Raman Raghav 2.0', Pooja Bhatt's Cabaret and Ram Gopal Varma's 'Veerappan' will release on the same date — May 27. However, Kashyap seems to be in no mood to take risks with a project that has a lot riding on it and has apparently shifted its release date.

A source close to the director confirms the story and says, "'Raman Raghav 2.0' will most probably release in the last week of June now. It was a conscious decision as all films are more or less of the same genre and Anurag didn't want comparisons."

When contacted Anurag Kashyap remained unavailable for comment, but tweeted saying: "BoxOffice is going to get very incestuous on May 27th. It's like a Civil War of Andheri-Versova-AramNagar on box office .. Bhaago(sic)."
