Housefull 4 and Saand Ki Aankh too have booked the same date.

The announcement poster of Bad Boy was unveiled on 18 May.

"I have explored many genres in the arena of filmmaking. One of my favourite genre is romantic comedies. We have come up with an interesting and quirky story with Bad Boy and together with producer Sajid Qureshi hope to give audiences an exciting entertainer," Santoshi said in a statement, during the announcement.

The filmmaker's most recent movie was the 2013 action comedy Phata Poster Nikhla Hero. The film featured Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz, and was loosely based on Guru, starring Mithun, Sridevi and Shakti Kapoor.
