Release date of Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Mary Kom’ biopic announced!

Priyanka ChopraSo far, two big films were tentatively locked for theatrical release during the Gandhi Jayanti weekend this year.

Now, Priyanka Chopra’s biopic on Olympic medal-winning boxer M.C Mary Kom, has joined Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang and Saif Ali Khan’s Phantom on October 2nd 2014.

While the ‘Bang Bang vs Phantom’ clash is likely to be averted as both films feature Katrina Kaif, Viacom18 Motion Pictures on Wednesday officially announced the release date of ‘Mary Kom’,┬ádirected by Omung Kumar.

With every filmmaker trying to cash-in on the holiday weekend, clashes between big films is likely to get more frequent in the next few years.

It remains to be seen if a solo non-holiday release is better than a holiday clash between two films.

  • Very bad dicision by viacom. .peecee is a great actress, but stardomwise,she is not even closed to kat. .then how can she manage to beat combo of hro-kat(arguably the hottest pair of bollywood),commercial entertainment and vishal-shekhar music? ! !
    And,vishal dadlani yesterday tweeted that bang bang has superb songs. Remember,hr is best dancer of bollywood and kat is best female dancer of current time.so u can imagine how much their dance numbers will create hype.

  • Phontom sud postpone to november because that month doesn’t have any superstar release. .otherwise,it will be bullet raja 2.

  • Mary Kom will not affect Bang Bang that much since Mary Kom is a biopic and bang bang is a commercial film as seen in Knight and Day
    And it is better to clash with Mary Kom than Action Jackson and Phantom will be postponed

  • And if Action Jackson is to clash with any movie,then it will be HNY for sure since there is a clash on 2nd October

  • @nipun why are you crying here this is not a page of hrithik as i know there is heavy crisis of article on hrithik but pls don,t type your boring comments on this site.i watched this trailer and this is looking best musical movie of this year OMG: what an amazaing song that was main aur tum agar hum ho jate hatsoff to himesh i think this is the best song of bollywood ever guys just watch the song in the trailer.

  • @king salman:my comment was completely true. .and this article is related to bang bang also. .if you find my post boring,then ignore it.

  • mary kom biopic will be good film i hope it will do well at boxoffice while worst film like bang bang a remake of crap film knight and day will be a big flop.

  • Well, I’m pretty sure it will be a great film with stellar performances, but releasing it with 2 other bigger films in terms of star power and production value won’t be a smart decision IMO. I hope it fares well at the box office should the content is good.

  • So if Action Jackson releases on 2nd October then there will be 4 films to clash on the same date . Bang Bang, Phantom, Mary Kom and Action Jackson . So i think at least 2 films have to postpone their release dates because all the movies have good actors like Hrithik, Katrina, Priyanka, Ajay and Saif . So i think Phantom should be postponed and the release of Action Jackson is not finalised so it will release in September or 2nd October . I don’t think Mary Kom should be released on 2nd October because Priyanka is very good but clash with Bang Bang and Hrithik will definitely affect the film . Anyways hope for the best .

  • @nipun Lol. It seems Priyanka’s film has sent scary shivers down Hrithik fans spines. Lol
    On one hand you say u like great movies like Lootera but now you are scared and hating on Mary Kom Lol.
    PC is much bigger crowdpuller than Hrithik. Remember Guzaarish flop? And PC was responsible for Krrish 3 doing 175 crore.
    And dont say that fake 244 crore figure, it is fake. K3 failed to beat Ranbir’s YJHD

  • Box office predictions:
    Mary Kom: 80 crore
    Bang Bang: 60 crore
    Phantom: 70 crore
    @nipun should agree with this as he likes great movies like Lootera.
    He should want great film Mary Kom to beat mindless action Bang Bang if he is truthful. Else he will be a hypocrite.

  • @nipun Didnt expect this from you. You say you like great movies and hate mindless action flicks.
    And now you are supporting mindless action film Bang Bang instead of quality film Mary Kom. Shame

  • super excited for mary kom priyanka gonna sizzle again after barfi n gunday with her most brilliant performance ever

  • the first person reviewer is mad a film is not responded only to dance n songs its the script performance n storyline which matters n everyone knows how talented priyanka is n not to mention katrina on acting skills she has improved just averagely which is not good since 11 years n her dance has improved more but mary kom gonna rock more n bang bang gonna shit its date

  • mary kom gonna sizzle to the fullest n priyanka is a far biggest superstar n best actress so talented far better than katrina n in dancing both r equal

  • action jackson is most likely to come on diwali or else on non-holiday date. phantom will also postpone or prepone its release date. as far as mary kom is concerned, its a biopic, it has no competition with a huge commercial film like bang bang. but if viacom is not fool, they should go for a solo safe release and ensure their movie earns more money than to clash with a biggie like bang bang and lose a large chunk of money.

  • if mary kom clashes with bang bang, its ok bang bang is big enough to handle clashes but what will happen if action jackson clashes with happy new year ?? poor srk, his lungi will be torn apart again. last time ajay’s SOS was just 5-10 cr behind jthj. now action jackson will score 40 cr more than happy new year as hny will be a disaster. poor fella LOKI will cry

  • @aeyy
    u must be very happy because action Jackson postponed otherwise holiday would have been a disaster. but still holiday will not be able to cross 60 crores.
