Perfect release date for Hrithik-Katrina’s Bang Bang
We think, the makers couldn’t have chosen a better date to release their film. Here’s why.
Holiday release: When you have two of the biggest superstars in the business Hrithik – Katrina in a commercial action film, and release it on a National holiday, except all opening records to be shattered. ‘Bang Bang’ will have a 4 day extended weekend, much like Agneepath last year.
Perfect gap between three Hrithik starrers: Krrish 3 releases on Nov 3 2013 and exactly a year later Karan Malhotra’s Shuddhi is scheduled to release during Diwali 2014 (October 23rd). ‘Bang Bang’ arrives bang in between, 6 months after Krrish 3 and 6 months prior to Shuddhi.
IPL Season: Very few big-budget films release during the IPL season and for good reason, as business for the evening shows on Saturday and Sunday tend to get affected. But since ‘Bang Bang’ releases a month into the IPL season, cricket fatigue would have begun to set in and the audience would be itching to watch a commercial entertainer.

P.S. It’s time for Hrithik fans to celebrate as the actor has 3 releases in a year (Nov 2013 – Oct 2014). The last time that happened was more than a decade ago in 2002!
