Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Bachchan Pandey’ helmed by Sajid Nadiadwala has had its release date postponed, averting a clash with Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’.
‘Bachchan Pandey’ was initially expected to release on Christmas 2020. However, in an announcement today, the film will now hit cinemas on 22nd January 2021.
Khan also took to Twitter to thank the team of ‘Bachchan Pandey’ for changing the release date. He said, “Sometimes all it takes is one conversation. Thank you to my friends
@akshaykumar & Sajid Nadiadwala for their warm gesture of moving the release date of their film Bachchan Pandey at my request. I wish them the very best for their film. Looking forward to it.
As a part of the film’s new release date announcement, the makers unveiled a new look of Kumar in the film. Kumar is seen sporting a beard and a lungi with multiple gold chains and a red headband on the forehead.
Anytime @aamir_khan , we’re all friends here 🙃 Presenting – new look, new release date. Coming on 22nd January, 2021. In and as #BachchanPandey! #SajidNadiadwala @farhad_samji @kritisanon https://t.co/Y75p0bQmaF pic.twitter.com/orZPR6NZYM
