This Friday will witness the release of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's much awaited Delhi-6, his next project after the iconic super-hit, Rang De Basanti. The Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Waheeda Rahman starrer has been rated as a social by the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification), and given a UA certificate (C.C. NO. CIL/2/17/2009) with a length of 3872.29 metres in 8 reels, with cuts in sound only. Reportedly, the film is 2 hours 18 minutes long.
The film trade which was going through a dry spell, with delayed/small projects, saw a resurrection of sorts with the release of Shahrukh Khan's Billu, and Delhi-6 is expected to carry forward the good phase and come up trumps at the ticket window. More so as there are no major films releasing after this Friday, and Delhi-6 is bound to enjoy an uninterrupted run, without facing much opposition. The only major roadblock is likely to be the upcoming IPL Twenty20 cricket matches.
