Sunny Deol starrer Bhaiyyaji Superhit which has been in the making for quite some years will not release on Eid 2017 clashing with Salman Khan’s Tubelight.
The producer of Bhaiyyaji Superhit is quite confident about releasing the film during Eid. We are in talks with distributors, who have warned us about Salman’s ‘Tubelight’. It’s a fact that he is a superstar, but we too are confident of our film and so, it doesn’t matter whoever comes alongside us.”
“In the past, we have had many instances when two hit screens and both did well. Besides, we are presenting Sunny in a new avatar. He has a double role in the film and I am sure his fans will love him.”
The makers are eyeing around 2,500 screens. “The distributors are saying we may not get the desired number of screens, so we are okay with even 2,000 screens. I am not worried at all,” Dhariwal adds.
Sunny has also given his consent to an Eid release. “When I shared my plan with him, he said, ‘You are the producer and know best for the film. If you are fine with it, I am too’. I am aware they are good friends, but this clash won’t affect their friendship.”
In 2015, Sunny Deol’s Ghayal Once Again was also announced to release on Diwali. But it was postponed later on to avoid clash with Salman Khan’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
