Fearing a clash with the Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash
that could result in the inevitable, filmmaker Sanjay
Gupta has pushed the release of Shootout At Wadala (SAW) to next year.
While Talaash is scheduled to release on 30 November,
SAW was scheduled to release on 7 December.
original release date was 7 December. Later Talaash
was announced for 30 November release. So it's obvious
that when an Aamir Khan full-fledged ainstream film
releases after almost three years, distributors and
exhibitors will block the theatres for at least two
weeks," Gupta said in support of his action.
the other hand, pushing SAWs release to next
year also means that Gupta is also avoiding a clash
with the Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 2 that
is to release on 24 December. Naturally, we had to
look for a later date because Shootout... is
also an equally big film. We are mature to understand
that. Let's not eat into each other's business,"
screen adaptation of Mumbai police's first registered
gun battle, Shootout At Wadala stars John Abraham
as gangster Manya Surve along with Anil Kapoor, Sonu
Sood, Manoj Bajpayee, Tusshar Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut.
