Perfect release date for Hrithik-Katrina’s Bang Bang

Hrithik Roshan - Katrina KaifIn an official statement released to the media, Fox Star Studios announced the release date of Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang. The action entertainer is slated for worldwide release on May 1st 2014.

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!

  • @INDICINE dear we all know u are a *huge* fan of Mr. Hrithik Roshan, but why make an article of such a topic.
    I am sure u’ll never make such a topic for any star, whether it’s Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh, Akshay, Ranbir or Emraan.
    Kindly stop promoting your favorites on the site. I guess INDICINE is a bollywood site & NOT a fan site. u just promote ur favorite stars here. even during the awards season u always support Hrithik.
    It’s not that i don’t like Hrithik, infact he’s my 2nd most favorite actor & that is why i’ve always kept quiet because i am his fan, but ur biased towards every other star.
    Its not just about this article but about most of ur tweets & aticles published. I request u to be unbiased & not behave like fan site.

    Expecting an answer from ur side.

  • as a die hard hrithik fan i m absolutely jubilant…thank god after krrish 3 i will not have to wait for years to watch hrithik’s movie….His fans all around the world will be ecstatic to hear this news…now i see hrithik becoming the no.1 hero in bollywood…..

  • Wow! Its a perfect date for great film of perfect and hottest jodi. I am eagerly awaiting for all krrish 3 and bang bang

  • Nowadays producers decides the release date 1st even before starting shooting for the movie.2 important dates which are post ipl and diwali already captured by Hrithik.2 back to back diwali releases for Hrithik and Hrithik will enjoy this but the person who will suffer is Srk bcoz diwali holidays saved last 2 Srk

  • I hate katrina..She is the worst actress of Bollywood. She has no expression in her face. Priyanka or Bipasha was a better choice for this film.

  • m eagerly waitin fr all d 3 movies, krrish 3,bang bang n shuddhi ,all of dem hav d potential to brk records n mek histroy at box office :) hrithikmania………….

  • i am very exited to watch krrish 3 , bang bang , shuddhi .Releasing date of all three movie is very good.
    even some one serprise krrish3 releasing on sunday than i told him that why krrish 3 break 3 idiots
    ( i think like 3 idiots every multiplex give 2 or 3 show in sat evening and night show)

    3 nov- deepawali

    4nov – goverdhan pooja

    5nov – bhaiya dooj

    6 nov and 7 nov – working day ( raj,gujart has holyday and noth india bihar and up big chhat pooja)

    8 ,9, 10 nov – weekand

    11, 12,13 nov – like week days

    14 nov – chidren day

    15 nov – moharram

    16 nov – sat

    17 nov – guru nanak jay

    so when the movie is release on 3 nov is good for movie and colleation is good till 17 nov so i think if movie has some mixed like ett movie cross 200 cr very easy. if movie is release in 1 nov than hipe and buzz are low in 2nd weekand.

  • Great news ! But it won’t shatter opening record coz thats only possible in Eid & X-mass even in Diwali you won’t expect a movie to break first day record.lot will depend on it’s promo & buzz and it can do 24+ cr & even more on first day which is a more realistic possibility.

  • IPL may be shifted to another country due to General Election in India like it happened in 2009. Then it will be good for Bang Bang ! Lets see, All the best to Hrithik and Katrina!!
