Brad Pitt’s upcoming film ‘Fury’, which was initially scheduled to release in Indian theatres on October 17, has now been postponed by two weeks because of Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year.
PVR Pictures, the distributors of ‘Fury’ in India will release the film only after the Diwali festivities and a week after Happy New Year releases in theatres.
“However, since the worldwide release is Oct 17 and that’s peak family time in India, given the festivities of Diwali, we took a conscious call to push the release.
“Also, ‘Happy New Year’ is coming out too, which will definitely be a priority watch for the audience as most people wish to during this period, watch movies with their families. We didn’t want to dilute the release of our film,” Deepak Sharma of PVR Pictures said in a statement.
Fury is a war drama, which also stars Shia Labeouf.
