It’s a sad news for all the fans who were eagerly waiting to see Gurmeet’s sizzling chemistry with Sana Khan in his upcoming film Wajah Tum Ho.
Is it the effect of Demonetization or clash with Kahaani 2?
Director Vishal Pandya’s first two films Hate Story 2 and 3 were super hits. His upcoming film Wajah Tum Ho in the same genre was slated to be released on Dec 2, 2016, however, the makers have decided to shift the release date to Dec 16, 2016.
Director Vishal Pandya took to Twitter and announced that the movie Wajah Tum Ho will be released on December 16. Earlier, the film starring Sana Khan, Gurmeet Choudhary, Rajneesh Duggal and Sharman Joshi was set to have a box office clash with Kahaani 2.
Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal starring Kahaani 2 will be released on December 2. It is just the assumption that the current cash crisis due to demonetization could be one of the reason for pushing the date of Wajah Tum Ho, some are also assuming the fact that the makers did it intentionally to avoid the clash with Kahaani 2.
However, the exact reason behind the change in release date is not yet confirmed.
A large section of the potential audience of ‘Wajah Tum Ho’ is based in smaller towns where there is a severe crunch of availability of new currency.
Due to this short term affect of demonetisation, the makers were advised by the experts to shift the release date to December 16.
Sharing about the same, Gurmeet says: “Yes, we took a collective decision on Monday night to postpone the release of ‘Wajah Tum Ho’ from December 2 to December 16. The main reason is the demonetisation. It has had a crippling effect on the middle-class’ buying power. They have no money to see movies at the moment.”
Adding to it he said: “We have full faith in our product. We saw the film the other evening and decided we have a winning product on our hands. We will pump up the marketing and promotion for two extra weeks to make the film even more viewer-friendly. By then the Indian middle class’s monetary situation would also improve.”
In addition, it gives 15 days more time to people to adjust to the current situation the country is transiting through.
Nevertheless, Wajah Tum Ho is now set to have a solo release as there are no other big releases on December 16.
We wish all the very best to the entire team of Wajah Tum Ho.
