According to a crewmember, “The film was all set to release on October 2. But the film’s unit is currently working on its post production and we expect to complete it soon. Keeping this in mind, we have decided to release it early. This means that it will no longer clash with Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Haider’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Bang Bang’.”

According to trade pundits, too many big films releasing on the same day is not profitable for anyone.

October 2 being Gandhi Jayanti, it is a long weekend, so it is natural for producers to cash in on it. “But if producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali and director Omung Kumar are thinking of bringing forward the release, it would be a good move,” says a trade expert.

It is also said that the biopic will be released in English and Hindi in a bid to capitalize on Priyanka’s newfound stardom in the international music arena. The film is based on the life and times of Manipur-based Olympic medalist Mary Kom.

Bhansali remained unavailable for comment.
