Long ago, March 29 was announced as the release date of Lootera featuring Ranvir Singh and Sonakshi Sinha. Now it seems that won’t happen. Reason: a few days ago, Karan Johar decided to release one of his next ventures, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, toplining Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone on the same date.
Ekta Kapoor, a co-producer of Lootera, explains, “I don’t want any of my films to clash with Karan’s and since he wants his movie to release on March 29, we have decided to zero in on to a new release date. In a few days, we will announce the new release date of Lootera.” She also added that there was no point having two big releases on the same date.
PS: Ekta Kapoor’s Shootout At Wadala was to release a week before Race 2 did in January 2013. Since both films feature Anil Kapoor and John Abraham in the lead, the release date of SAW might change.
