Delay in Irrfan Khan-starrer 'Madaari' yet again
'Madaari''s release date has been pushed back at the behest of the makers of 'Great Grand Masti'.
Mumbai: Actor Irrfan Khan-starrer Madaari, which was scheduled to be released on July 15, will now release a week later at the behest of the makers of Great Grand Masti.
They requested Vashu Bhagnani, the distributor of Madaari, to push back the film's release.
This is the second time that the movie's release date has been altered. Earlier, Madaari was to release alongside megastar Amitabh Bachchan's TE3N on June 10 and then it was pushed to July 15.
But Bhagnani doesn't mind.
"The industry is one big family and we all operate for and with each other. 'Madaari' will now hit theatres on July 22, while 'Great Grand Masti' will come on July 15," Bhagnani said in a statement.
Madaari, which explores a father-son relationship, is directed by Nishikant Kamat. It also features Jimmy Sheirgill in a pivotal role.
Great Grand Masti director Indra Kumar said Bhagnani's gesture is heartening.
"We're touched by Vashuji's gesture of moving his film ahead by a week on our request. The industry continues to stand thick as one body owing to such veteran producers," said Kumar, whose adult comedy film stars Ritesh Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Urvashi Rautela.
