The makers of the upcoming film Cheat India have announced a new release date for their project.
The movie which was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on January 25 will now be releasing on January 18. The reason behind the date shifting is clear and understood: the makers didn’t want their movie to clash with Manikarnika and Thackeray.
Giving confirmation to the new release date, Emraan took to twitter and wrote, “I cheated !! My film #Cheatindia will release one week earlier.. 18th jan 2019 !! See you in the theatres”
Thackeray is a biopic on the Indian politician Bal Thackeray, the founder of political party- Shiv Sena.
No matter the release date of Cheat India shifted to January 18, but Thackeray will still clash with Manikarnika.
The producers said in a statement, “As a mark of respect to Balasaheb and to maximize the commerce, we arrived at a win-win decision. There should be no ego in business. We have, in the past, rescheduled the release of Aashiqui-2, Hindi Medium, Sonu Ke Teetu Ki Sweety and Tumhari Sulu, to align with business logic, and the results are for all to see.”
Apart fom Emraan Hasmi, Cheat India also stars Shreya Dhanwanthary. It has been written and directed by Soumik Sen.
