2016 was believed to be a year of epic clashes at the box office, but it now looks like our stars have learnt from their mistakes and have decided to avoid box office battles.

Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’, starring 12-year-old Indian-American Neel Sethi as Mowgli, announced today that the film will hit Indian cinemas on April 8, a week before it’s Hollywood release. The live action adaptation of the book by the same name, was scheduled to hit theatres on April 15, along with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Fan’.

In the past, several Hollywood films have released in India prior to their big US release. However, the news of this advanced release comes just a week after the phenomenal success of ‘Deadpool’ at the Indian box office. The Hollywood superhero flick beating out all the competition it faced from films like ‘Fitoor’ and ‘Sanam Re’, to reign supreme at the box office.

‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘Fan’ clash aversion will only work to both films’ favours and ensure the cash registers at the box office keep ringing.

Based on the adventure stories penned by Rudyard Kipling, and directed by ‘Iron Man’ fame Jon Favreau, ‘The Jungle Book’ features voices by Hollywood A-listers like Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba and Christopher Walken.

  1. Its expected that jungle book will change the date and its gud for the two movies. Because clashing with big bollywood film will be highly risky and dat too with a SRK movie would have been highly dangerous. It would have been also a tough competition for FAN bcz JUNGLE BOOK is one of. D big nd most anticipated film in India.. in 2016
