We’ve just been informed that the title of Milan Luthria’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again’ has been changed to ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara’. The film will release in theatres on August 15th 2013 (Independence day release).
“Yes, the movie has been renamed as ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara’ and it will be released on Aug 15” Girish Johar, Head of Distribution and Acquisition, Balaji Motion Pictures, confirmed.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Imran Khan and Sonali Bendre. The film that was initially set to clash against Chennai Express, was postponed by a week to avoid the clash.
Apparently, Shahrukh Khan spoke to Jeetendra and a meeting was held between Jeetendra, UTV and Shahrukh to resolve the situation, and find a win-win situation for all.
“Keeping in mind that both weekends (Eid and Independence day) are good times for film releases, Jeetendra sir being the senior most showed the path. He took the decision to move OUATIM Dobara to 15th August. This is extremely graceful of him. UTV, Rohit and I are very happy with the decision made and we thank Jeetu sir and Balaji for the same. This should pave the way for such mature and sensible amicable understandings whenever two films release on the same day in future too,” says Shah Rukh Khan.
“My father and Shahrukh spoke and have clearly worked out what is best for both the films. Both are big and keenly awaited and should not be made to eat into each other’s business. I have huge respect for SRK and wish him the best,” says Ekta Kapoor.
