Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Rajkumar Rao starrer Fanney Khan has been postponed to Eid 2018. The film was earlier releasing on 13 April 2018 however that spot has been booked by Varun Dhawan starrer October.
Producers Arjun N Kapoor, Prernaa Arora and Bhushan Kumar released a joint statement saying, “We have locked the release date of Fanney Khan on Eid 2018 (June 15). We decided on Eid because the lead character Fanney Khan, played by Anil Kapoor, is a Muslim character and there’s no better day than Eid (to release it).”
It is an interesting decision as Salman Khan’s Race 3 is already releasing on Eid 2018. However we have seen in the past that small films announced the clash on festivals to gain publicity. In reality, it is almost impossible to clash with Salman in his comfort zone. Even Shahrukh Khan’s Raees could not take on Salman.
