According to a source, "John wanted 'Welcome Back' to release first, so when its release date was changed, Rocky Handsome's too was postponed. The actor feels that Welcome Back is a bigger film and releasing 'Rocky Handsome' after that would benefit the latter."

The source also adds that the director of 'Rocky Handsome', Nishikant Kamat doesn't want audience to get an overdose of the John-Shruti pair so he supports John's decision.

John Abraham remained unavailable for the comment, however, when contacted, director of 'Welcome Back', Anees Bazmee says, "I am not aware of the news. But if John has taken this decision, he must have thought for the betterment of both the films."
