Yash Raj Films and Excel Entertainment have mutually decided to swap the release dates of their forthcoming films ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ and ‘Toofan’.
An official statement released today said, “In the interest of both films and to ensure an ideal theatrical release, Aditya Chopra & Ritesh Sidhwani have decided to release their films on different dates. YRF will release Jayeshbhai Jordaar on 2nd October and Excel Entertainment will release Toofaan on 18th September 2020.”
‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, which stars Ranveer Singh as a Gujarati man, told Hindustan Times earlier, “Jayeshbhai is an unlikely hero, an ordinary man, who ends up doing something extraordinary when he’s hurled into a threatening situation. He is sensitive and compassionate, and believes in equal rights between men and women in a society that is deeply rooted in patriarchal ideals and practices.” The film also stars Mrunal Thakur.
Meanwhile, ‘Toofan’ features Farhan Akhtar playing a professional boxer. It is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
