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.
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.
