We reported earlier that Jodhaa Akbar was not getting delayed, and was still set to go on October 12th as announced, since that is what Ashuthosh Gowariker himself said. But many within the industry feel the movie will not make it in time and will be shifted to January 2008, as the film has not completed shooting yet.
Even if Jodhaa Akbar does make it to the coveted October 12th date, it will not be alone. There will be up to four movies joining it! Confirmed for this weekend are Bhool Bhulaiyaa (Priyadarshan’s next)and Laaga Chunari Mein Daag (YRF’s next). Atul Agnihotri is also eager in releasing his film, Hello, on this weekend. To top it all off, it is now being said that Halla Bol, Rajkumar Santhoshi’s next venture, is also releasing on the Eid weekend.
This has got to be one of the busiest weekends we have seen in quite some time in the industry. We can only hope that some of these films get preponed or postponed, as we want all this movies to get their deserved recognition and due. But as of now, it looks like Eid is going to be one hell of a weekend, with moviegoers having as many as five films to choose from!
