The makers of the Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam starrer social drama movie ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ have a bad piece of news. The news is that despite trying so much, they won’t be able to give a solo release to their much-awaited project. ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ was initially supposed to hit the big screen on August 31, 2018. But then, the movie was postponed to September 14, 2018, because producer Dinesh Vijan’s horror comedy ‘Stree’ was also coming on the same date. Since ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ and ‘Stree’ both films star Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead, the makers of the former acted wisely and deferred their movie to 14th September 2018.
However, little did they know that 14th September was already booked for the Kajol starrer ‘Helicopter Eela’ and Diljit Dosanjh’s ‘Arjun Patiala’. After that, ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ was pushed yet again to September 21, 2018. But, much to the chagrin of the makers, producer Aanand L Rai has announced that his highly anticipated movie ‘Manmarziyaan’ will also hit the marquee on September 21. Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, the romantic movie is helmed by Anurag Kashyap. Initially, ‘Manmarziyaan’ was supposed to release on September 7, 2018, but now it will battle it out with Shahid Kapoor’s movie on 21st September 2018.
Aanand L. Rai shares a poster and the official release date of the movie on his Twitter handle. “I don’t want to die without a few scars”!!!! This is how I define @anuragkashyap72 and his brilliant actors on the journey of -#Manmarziyaan @juniorbachchan @vickykaushal09 and @taapsee !!!! On 21stSEP meet the guts,” he wrote.
