Rohit Shetty has announced that his film ‘Simmba’ will not be clashing with Aanand L Rai’s ‘Zero’.
Shetty explained the reason behind the change, saying that “One week is enough, where is the competition. We were coming on the same date earlier but then me, Karan Johar and Shah Rukh (Khan) sat and discussed that if we come on the same day then business will be get affected. There was no competition as such. It was like a mutual thing. If the film is good it will run.”, PTI reported. The release date of ‘Simmba’ has now moved from 21st December to 28th December.
Revealing more about the film, Shetty shared, “It is a remake and remakes are being made since years. And there’s no harm in making remakes as maybe the younger generation has not caught up with those old films. ‘Simmba’ has a message in it. And I think it is my best written film till date.” The film stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles.
