After Ajay Devgn's dream project Shivaay's major clash with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil at the box office this Diwali, the actor was all set for a clash again next year, with Golmaal 4 scheduled to release at the same time as Rajinikanth's Robot 2.0.
But can anyone stand up to Rajinikanth? Knowing better, Golmaal director Rohit Shetty has decided to move his release date from 19 October, 2017 and let the Tamil superstar have the Diwali weekend.
Rohit Shetty had earlier announced Diwali 2017 as the release date for the fourth instalment of his comedy film. DNA reports that Shetty is himself a big fan of Rajinikanth and out of respect for him, was only too glad to shift his release date.
However, it is only trade sources who say that Robot 2.0 will be releasing during Diwali 2017 as Shankar, the director of the film, has not confirmed a date for the film.
Shetty's previous film Dilwale had clashed with Bajirao Mastani last year and the result was not too pleasant for the director. This could also be another reason for Shetty reconsidering the release date.
It is unclear if the release date will be advanced or postponed now as the new date for Golmaal 4 has not been declared yet.
