Prabhas-starrer Saaho has altered its release date to avoid a box office clash with Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal and John Abraham's Batla House. The multilingual action film, also featuring Shraddha Kapoor, will now hit cinemas on 30 August instead, and will clash with Sushant Singh Rajput and Shradhha's upcoming comedy Chhichhore

"We want to bring the best to the audience. For bringing finesse to the action sequences, we need some more time. Although we are shifting the date from Independence Day but we want to stick to the month of independence and patriotism with Saaho. We are dedicated to bringing the biggest movie on the largest scale," a spokesperson of Saaho shared in a statement earlier.

But the clash of Saaho with Chhichhore has reportedly resulted in a further date change. As per reports in Times of India, the release of Chhichhore may be pushed by a week to 6 September.

“Yes, in all likelihood, the release of Chhichhore will be pushed by a week since Saaho, which was slated to release alongside Mission Mangal and Batla House, has shifted to August 30. Because of this shift, Chhichhore will face competition at the box office and to avoid this, the makers of the film are contemplating delaying its release by a week to September 6,” Times Now reports.

However, an official confirmation about a change in the release date is still awaited.
