Box Office: ‘Welcome Back’ to be delayed a week for ‘Hero’?
When John Abraham tweeted the release date of his next ‘Welcome Back’, little did he or the rest of the film’s team know that their film would be going head to head with Salman Khan’s production ‘Hero’, which is also slated to release on the same day. BizAsia has learnt that now, to avoid the clash, Eros are looking to postpone ‘Welcome Back’ to release a week later.
Abraham and Khan had a fallout before with the clashing of previous releases but it seems this time, the latter is in no mood to back down. It seems that other filmmakers and distributors are now having to take a step away from Khan in order to make sure their films stand a decent chance at the box office.
Eros is expected to release the revised dates soon.
