Chennai Express release postponed
The Shah Rukh Khan starrer movie will now release post Eid
The collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone after a good six years with ‘Chennai Express’ has been one of the most anticipated films for this year. Now, it seems that the audience will have to wait even longer as the Rohit Shetty directed flick that was supposed to release on the August 8, 2013, on Eid, has been postponed by a day.
Eid that is generally booked by the ‘Dabanng’ Salman Khan but this year we will have a King Khan release around that time. However, as the filmmakers have now postponed the release of the film to August 9, 2013 for undisclosed reasons, the express will now arrive on a later date. Wonder if this is another way to get maximum audiences on the first date considering it’s a weekend or some production hassles.
Whatever the reason behind this the move, only time will tell whether making the audience wait will heighten expectations or instead dampen their anticipation.
