August is going to be a busy time for B-town. In light of this, filmmaker Subhash Ghai’s ‘Kaanchi’ will be released a week later than planned. Now set to release on 30th August, Ghai has confirmed that he wanted to give his film the best possible chance at the box office.
“I wanted to release ‘Kaanchi’ on 15th Aug because of a patriotic flavor to the love story. Since there are two big releases at Eid – Shah Rukh’s ‘Chennai Express’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2’, the single screens will be playing them for two weeks plus there are two other releases on 23rd, so I decided for 30th August as ‘Kaanchi’ being a mass as well as class film will need multiplex and single screens both. And I am too happy and excited about the film,” expressed Ghai.
He continued to comment on his excitement about the project, “I know that people are really waiting for a big film from me with wholesome entertainment for every section of audience. ‘Kaanchi’ has a great story with a message and fun and drama combined and great music to cherish. I have recorded four songs by Ismail Darbar and Salim Sulaiman on with the lyrics of Irshad Kamil and I can say today that it’s going to be big blockbuster music album on the day it will be released. My new heroine has done a fantastic job to take over the first row among stars of today. It’s a larger than life film and production both and I am waiting for 30th August to show it to my audience”.
Ghai is introducing a new star cast with ‘Kaanchi’ as well as including veteran actors like Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor in the project.
