John Abraham and Shruti Haasan’s ‘Rocky Handsome’ has been indefinitely postponed from its 2nd October release date. The film which was earlier planned to clash with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Singh Is Bling’ on Gandhi Jayanti this year, will release at a later date.
‘Rocky Handsome’ was first scheduled to release on February 6 this year, but since John’s ‘Welcome Back’ was previously scheduled to release on May 29, the makers decided to postpone the film to 2nd October. Now that the sequel to ‘Welcome’ is releasing on 4th September, the release date of ‘Rocky Handsome’ has been changed again.
There were rumours that it may release on 22nd October along with Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Shaandaar’, but the producer of the film is in no hurry to release it.
When contacted, Sunir Khetrapal, the producer of ‘Rocky Handsome’, said “Rocky Handsome is not releasing in October or November. We will announce the new date when it is confirmed.”
Rocky Handsome is said to be an action-thriller with plenty of never-before-seen action sequences. The Nishikant Kamat directed film is the official remake of Korean film ‘The Man From Nowhere’. The film’s story revolves around a man who sets out to take vengeance against a drug mafia after they take away an eight-year old girl, with whom he shares a special bond.
Confirmation then, Akshay Kumar’s Singh Is Bling will get a solo release on Gandhi Jayanti.
