Bala moves to Nov 7, avoids clash with Marjaavaan
Mumbai: The makers of Ayushmann Khurrana's Bala have preponed the film's release by two weeks.
The film was earlier set to hit the theatres on November 22 but now it will release on November 7, production banner Maddock Films said in a statement.
At its new release date, Bala was set to lock horns with Bhushan Kumar's Marjaavaan, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh in the lead.
But Kumar decided to move Marjaavan to a week later so as to make way for Bala.
"I've had a long standing relationship with @MaddockFilms and #DineshVijan is also a dear friend. I've decided to shift #Marjaavaan to 15th November 2019, to make way for #Bala. My best wishes to the team," the producer tweeted recently. To this, Vijan said, "Before anything Bhushan is a friend, and he understands how impactful the release date of a film can be. He's been kind enough to move Marjaavaan and let Bala come, and for that I'm grateful."
