Who would have thought that the small-budgeted-bighearted-film war film Uri would become a certifiable blockbuster! Its producer's RSVP which is helmed by the indomitable Ronnie Screwvala are so amazed by the success that they’ve decided to postpone their next release the well-anticipated dacoit drama Sonchiraiya by a month.
A source reveals, “The release date of this powerful-looking dacoit drama featuring Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpai and Ashutosh Rana has been postponed from February 8 to March 1, to give URI more space to grow as it shows no signs of slowing down.”
Also, out of the February 1 slot is the promising horror-spook show Amavas featuring Nargis Fakhri who makes a sort of comeback after departing from India for very mysterious reasons. It now releases on February 8.
Apparently, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra wanted his sister Shelley Chopra Dhar’s maiden film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga to be the solo release on February 1, hence the producers requested Amavas to move ahead.
Entrepreneur-filmmaker Sachiin Joshi who produces Amavas says, “I don’t mind coming on February 8. We were supposed to release in January. But our special effects were not ready. We wanted the effects to be top-notch and not tacky as they often are in our Indian supernatural thrillers. We know we have a classy supernatural film on our hands. We are confident Amavas will make an impact on release on February 8.”
