"This is the producer's decision, Adi's (Aditya Chopra) decision. The marketing team at Yash Raj Films came up with a brilliant marketing idea and they needed time to execute it," the 25-year-old said.

"A September 5 release was very early and even a week's delay didn't leave us enough time for the promotional strategy. So, we pushed it ahead by two weeks," she added.

There were reports that Parineeti Chopra wanted to avert a clash with her sister Priyanka Chopra's film 'Mary Kom', which is set for a September 5 release.

"Why would I tell Adi and why would he listen to me? I don't have that kind of power and it's absolutely ridiculous," Parineeti said and added Priyanka is a senior actress and there cannot be any competition between them.

"She is my sister and I love her. I have no plans to fight with her or compete with her. She is a senior actress and a lot ahead of me, I can never compete with her," she said.

Directed by Habib Faisal, ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ stars Aditya Roy Kapur in the male lead.
