Box Office Update: Release Merry-Go-Round
With so many films lined up for release in July and August, the rescheduling game has begun. Mukesh Bhatt has postponed his Crook to 1st October. The Emraan Hashmi starrer was planned and announced for release on 6th August but because Emraan’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbai is due for release a week earlier, on 30th July, Bhatt thought it better to keep a gap between the two films. T-Series has moved its Kajraare ahead by a week. It will now come on 6th August, probably because the producers did not want to get it in opposition of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. Subhash Ghai, whose Hello Darling was slated to hit the screens on 30th July, is also looking for an alternate date for the same reason. Meanwhile, Bombay distributor-turned-producer Vinay Choksey’s Help has been postponed. Instead of 9th July, it will now be released on 13th August alongside Aamir Khan’s Peepli Live.
