As per reliable trade sources, producer Boney Kapoor has decided to release his Pokkiri remake on October 2nd. Boney took the decision to release the Salman Khan-Ayesha Takia starrer, Wanted Dead And Alive, on the mentioned date because the film would be ready by then and its 'Eid-Ul-Fitr' on 2nd October.
What may have also weighed in favour of a Gandhi Jayanti release is that the film will see an extended holiday, as the festival of the triumph of good over evil, 'Dussehra' follows a week after 'Eid'/Gandhi Jayanti. And thus the film will get the benefit of extended holidays.
The same month (October 24) will see the release of Subhash Ghai's much awaited Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer, Yuvraaj. Why the particular week? Well, it's simple, the week will conclude with the bountiful period, the festival of lights, 'Diwali', which falls on the 28th and 29th of October.
Look forward to festive treat from Salman Khan this year!
