The release date of Shah Rukh Khan’s next with director Maneesh Sharma is reported to have been postponed. Fan will no longer be an Independence release. According to a popular daily, there has been a change in the schedule and since the film has run into delay due to VFX changes, it seems the makers have found a new release date for the film.
While all major holidays and festival releases have already been booked, SRK’s Fan may now release on 23rd September, 2015.
Wondering if there are any specific reasons for this date? Well, 23rd is a holiday for Bakri Eid and with it comes an extended 5 day weekend. This will be extremely beneficial for the film and also since Shah Rukh’s other film with Rohit Shetty is mostly up for release in Christmas, the gap is good.
Although an official announcement is still awaited on this, if the makers do not finalize this date, then the film may be shifted for a 2016 release. The film is definitely expected to live up to its hype and if it gets a five day long extended weekend, then be rest assured that Fan will be making a massive business.
