'Christmas would be perfect to release Peekay'

Earlier, the film was slated to release on 6 June this year. However, now it will hit the screens this Christmas on 25 Dec.

‘There was no particular reason to delay the release of the film (Peekay). Most of Aamir’s films release during Christmas and they have done well,’ Hirani told reporters on Tuesday at the press meet for Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2014. ‘Actually I needed a month more. Though we wanted to release the film in June but then we thought Christmas is perfect to release the film,’ he added.

According to the 51-year-old, the festive season was also the reason to shift the release date to Christmas as more people would be able to watch the film.

‘It is festive and holiday times and more people tend to watch films during this period,’ said the National Award winning filmmaker.

‘Moreover every filmmaker wants more people to watch his film. So keeping the festive season in mind, we are releasing the film on Christmas,’ he added.
