The decision has been taken keeping in mind the benefits of both the films — Aiyaary and Dil Juunglee, the producers said.

Aiyaary producers Neeraj Pandey and Jayantilal Gada said in a joint statement: "In this industry, it is crucial to help each other out and solidarity goes a long way.

"We appreciate that Pooja Films and Vashu Bhagnaniji has decided to move the Dil Junglee release date. All films need the right space in theatres to flourish and nobody understands and appreciates that more than filmmakers."

Bhagnani said: "To a producer and a filmmaker, a film is their baby and we want the best for our baby. As a producer, I do understand the pressures at the box office and it's important to stand by other producers.

"There should be enough for all, hence we are moving to March 9, so that all films including ours gets the audiences it deserves."

After the makers of Padmaavat settled for release on 25 January, Akshay Kumar shifted the release of Pad Man to 9 February, leading Aiyaary to be shifted to 16 February and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety to 23 February.
