With promotions of ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again’ in full swing, the makers have decided to retitle it by omitting ‘Again’ and replacing it with ‘Dobara’.
The action thriller, which only recently changed its release date from Thursday 8th August to Thursday 15th August, to avoid a clash with ‘Chennai Express’ at the box office, will now be known as ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara’.
Yes, the movie has been renamed as Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara۪ and it will be released on Aug 15″, Girish Johar, Head of Distribution and Acquisition, Balaji Motion Pictures, confirmed.
Keeping in mind that both weekends (Eid and Independence day) are good times for film releases, Jeetendra sir being the senior most showed the path. He took the decision to move OUATIM Dobara to 15th August. This is extremely graceful of him. UTV, Rohit and I are very happy with the decision made and we thank Jeetu sir and Balaji for the same. This should pave the way for such mature and sensible amicable understandings whenever two films release on the same day in future too, says Shah Rukh Khan.
My father and Shahrukh spoke and have clearly worked out what is best for both the films. Both are big and keenly awaited and should not be made to eat into each other۪s business. I have huge respect for SRK and wish him the best, says Ekta Kapoor.
The film stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Imran Khan and Sonali Bendre.
