Gabbar Release Date Announced: Akshay Kumar starrer postponed

Two Akshay Kumar films – Neeraj Pandey’s Baby and Krish’s Gabbar – were both scheduled to release during the ‘Republic Day’ weekend in 2015. To avert the clash, Gabbar has been postponed to a later date.

The film, also starring Shruti Hassan and Sonu Sood, will release just before the beginning of the next season of IPL on April 3rd.

Interestingly, as things stand today, both films are scheduled to clash with other big releases. ‘Welcome Back’ will release on January 23rd 2015, while Kabir Khan’s ‘Phantom’ starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif has been announced for a April 3rd release.

In other news, Action Jackson will now release on December 5 (confirmed), The Shaukeens could be pushed ahead by a week (not confirmed) and Ungli which was recently announced for a December 5 release, could release sometime in November.



  • Bad decision.
    Baby is not a commercial film,Gabbar should have released on republic day.Gabbar is a massy film and is suited for an Holiday release not Baby.
    Baby won’t collect much.Another bad decision by Akshay sir

  • No offence akki fans but it lookes like another bad film from akki that cones after a gd film kike baby.akki loves to follow every gd film of his with 2 bad films!

  • Rowdy was followed with disaster joker

    Omg with avg k786

    S26 with disaster ouatimd and boss

    Holiday with avg entertainment

    And nw superhit baby will b followed by crappy singh is bling and gabbar!

    Akki bhaiyaa,y r u punishing urself?plz stop it

  • 3 april is the good date…and april is lucky for akki housefull 2 in 2012 do 100cr. buisness…hope both movie will release without any clash..phantom & welcome back should be postpone..

  • So many clashes now a days Why is everyone trying to crush there own BO dont you people get anyother weekend or week day! Or is this for the promotion of the films….Crazy World!

  • upcoming akshay kumar’s movies…which are officially confirmed…
    31july-singh is bling

  • I have brought in some good 3d technology for mrx 3d. I told vikram bhatt about it. He has made the film. Amyra is my heroine whom u all saw in issaq.

  • Akki do many movies every year which clashes with other movies so Akki should clash with himself and release his 2 movies on the same day and whichever movie wins in clash will be movie of akki only and akki will be always winner

  • people will remember gud movies but will forgot boxoffice collections …
    So boxoffice doesn,t matter.
    Movie like Andaz apna apna ,swedes ,Awarapan was flop ..but people still remember those movies.

  • @being SRK , you are actually right in a way. Utmost care should be taken by SRK fans because he releases (read gets) only one film a year and if that bombs then it will be a sorry picture. So yes a lot to care about for SRK fans but nothing about Akki’s movies.

  • Akshay kumar is a legend and at this stage of carier he does nt need anyones advice..haters akshay ko lekar itna pareshan kyun hote hai?

  • @Indicine, come on guys…Action Jackson’s news is big news…you should have posted like an article not like this way.
    @anyway, hope Gabar and Phantom both do well

  • @Sir Ranbir

    Beta, don’t show me your tevar. Focus on your movies. You have no releases this year. Please this is my humble request.

  • @bulli xcellent cmnt.I completely agree with u.@thullu bhai no offence but the truth is akki by continuosly doing films like gabbar,tmk,joker,boss is tarnishing his name and stardom.there is nothing in wrong in doing bad/flop films but do deliberately signs craps after craps for money is stupidity.hope to see akki in gd films like bhool bhulaiyaa,khakee,welcome,omg etc

  • Hrithik was correct-‘akki is an industry of its own’
    a time when every big to small stsr is doing maximum 2 films a year and often just 1 film a year akki is doing 4-5 every year!I cn understand young actors like arjun,varun doing so many films a year bcz thet don’t hv much of a fan following but for a big massy star like so many releases prevents his loyal fans to watch all his films thus leading to their underperformance

  • If Welcome Back was also supposed to release on January 23rd, then good decision as Gabbar seems to be more commercial project than Baby and it might win the battle against Phantom.
    While releasing it with Baby and Welcome Back wouldn’t have been good for any of those films.

    P.S. – Hrithik Roshan is rumored to have signed Zoya Akhtar’s ZNMD sequel titled as “Road”, Hrithik hasn’t confirmed it though.

    it should be weekend in 2015 not “weekend in 2014” as you mentioned in your article .

  • All akki’s movies going to be disaster,
    coz- relisng date n a disaster star akki

    movie entrtnment gain avrg stats coz of that dog…

  • @Bieng srk, don’t say that you are srkian, because you are not srk fan…..

    coming to article, its another bad date for akki film…

  • @sir ranbir kapoor
    I suggest to u to become a full fledged akki hater…
    U have already termed GABBAR n SINGH IZ BLING as craps!!!
    Gabbar is a remake of A.R muragadoss’s is not a crap has 7.9 on imdb..but u are dying for tevar which is also south remake,shame on u for this hypocrisy..
    Neither was boss and entertainment craps,u have’nt even seen them but still tag them as crap..n u liked HUMSHAKALS?? Lol
    Ur arjun’s gunday put b’wood to shame by getting 1.6 on imdb..
