If rumours are to be believed, Saif Ali Khan’s next film’s release has just been postponed. Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullet Raja is now all set to hit the marquee on November 29 instead of September 6. Interestingly, Saif’s film will now clash with Shahid Kapoor’s Rambo Rajkumar, helmed by Prabhu Deva.
Apparently, it was because the makers wanted more time to market the film that its release has been pushed back. A source says, “Thanks to the producers of Saif’s Bullet Raja, the release has been postponed by two months. Initially, Saif was keen that the film gets a solo release. However after his back-to-back successes with Cocktail and Race 2, Saif is not afraid of competition.”
In fact if they had stuck to the original schedule, Saif’s film would have clashed with Ungli and Zanjeer 2.0. While stating that Prabhu Deva is currently on a roll, a trade insider says, “It is unhealthy that two big films should clash with each other. While the recent track record of Tishu and Saif cannot be ruled out, one needs to also consider that Prabhu is at the top of his game currently. We wish that one of the two change their date to avoid eating into each other’s business.”
Producer Rahul Mittra confirms the buzz and states, “Saif is currently in LA shooting for his home production. Post his return, we need to complete a music track. We need enough time to mount and market it.” A birdie from Juhu chirps, “One can’t forget that Shahid’s ex is now Saif’s wife. Their clash will be quite interesting to witness.”
