The battle between Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgan for box-office supremacy on Republic day next year, has quite sensibly been averted.
As expected, it’s the makers of Ajay Devgan’s Tezz who have decided to postpone their high-budget film by 2 months. Tezz will now arrive on March 23rd 2012.
Not so long ago, Ganesh Jain (producer) had promised that they won’t be postponing the release of Tezz, come what may “We were the first to announce the release date. We were ready to face Aamir Khan, we are ready to face competition from Hrithik Roshan too.” he had said.
But with about 35 days to go for January 26th, Tezz was always struggling against time to release with Agneepath. Add to that, the fact that, there is already a strong buzz around the Hrithik Roshan film and it was only sensible for Ganesh Jain to postpone Tezz.
So then, Agneepath will have a solo release and so will Tezz. Both films will benefit and both are expected to break some serious box-office records.
