The release of Shah Rukh Khan’s most anticipated films of the year, Jawan, has been postponed to October, as per reports. The action-packed entertainer, helmed by filmmaker Atlee, was initially slated for its release on 2 June, but now reports are surfacing that the movie will hit the theaters on June 29.
As per the reports from Bollywood Hungama, “If it releases on the 29th, it can have a four-day weekend and also get the advantage of the Bakri Eid holiday on its release day. Moreover, Sidharth Malhotra-starrer Yodha and Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Dream Girl 2 were slated to arrive in cinemas on July 7. Both got pushed last week. Many believed that these movies were postponed as they don’t want to get in the way of the Jawan wave.”
“With the buzz around #JAWAN sooo hot and team @iamsrk @Atlee_dir @RedChilliesEnt being silent so far. I feel 2nd June date maybe changed as the film is MEGAA HUUUGE and a MAMMOTH machinery is required to pull this multi lingual release successfully at a GLOBAL level !!! #AskSRK Sir pls enlighten @iamsrk #JawanUpdate.” tweeted Trade analyst Girish Johar.
If Jawan is released on 29th of June then it will clash with Satyaprem Ki Katha, starring Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani. It is also predicted that if the release date of the movie is rescheduled to 29 th of June, Satyaprem Ki Katha will be postponed.
