Instead of 15th December, ‘Fukrey Returns’ to release on its original date, 8th December.
As ‘Padmavati’ has been postponed to a future date, makers of ‘Fukrey Returns’ pull their movie to a week prior.
When the teaser of ‘Fukrey Returns’ was launched, it was stated that the movie will hit the big screen on 8th December 2017. But soon after ‘Padmavati’ trailer launch, the makers of ‘Fukrey Returns’ pushed their movie a week ahead i.e. on 15th December. Until this morning, 15th was the final date of FR. But due to the controversies around ‘Padmavati’, its filmmakers shifted the release of the film to some future date, to which the ‘Fukrey Returns’ makers rescheduled their movie to its original date, i.e. 8th December 2017.
Early morning, the news came that the ‘Firangi’ makers are also planning to reschedule their release date, now they are looking for the 1st December slot. ‘Monsoon Shootout’ is also one such movie which has changed its original release date. ‘Monsoon Shootout’, which was also initially supposed to release on 15th December, will now release a week prior, i.e. on 8th, clashing with ‘Fukrey Returns’. The motive behind this mess regarding the rescheduling of movies is very clear. ‘Padmavati’ was the only big film in the coming 2-3 weeks. As the movie has now withdrawn, other filmmakers got the chance to have a solo release or clashing with just one film.
This rescheduling will surely help all the small films to make some box office collections. With ‘Padmavati’ already out of the league now, these films will get 2-3 weeks to do the business as the only big release, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ will hit the screens on 22nd December.
