Mumbai: Release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next ‘My Friend Pinto’ has been pushed ahead following a clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s youth rom-com ‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’. Bhansali has postponed the release of his forthcoming film from June 17 to July 1.
Trade experts feel that Bhansali doesn’t want to take any chances with SRK anymore, perhaps wanting to avoid the disastrous deja vu when ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Saawariya’ clashed at the Box Office.
Sources confirm that the ‘Guzaarish’ director decided to rework his production’s release date after watching SRK`s dance number ‘Antenna’ from the film.
The ace filmmaker doesn`t want to take SRK for granted especially after watching King Khan’s awe inspiring number.
However, SLB seems to have landed in deep trouble now as his film will now be released along with widely anticipated ‘Delhi Belly’ and Big B`s ‘Bbuddha Hoga Tera Baap’.
Well, let’s hope Bhansali’s friend `Mr Pinto` gets to see the day of light soon!
