Initially, Karan Johar's We Are Family, Arbaaz Khan's first production Dabangg and Sohail Maklai's Knock Out were confirmed for 10th September [Eid week]. But Sohail Maklai has decided to shift his film ahead by three weeks, which means that Knock Out, starring Sanjay Dutt, Irrfan and Kangna Ranaut, will now arrive on 1st October.
Confirms Sohail, "Had Knock Out released in the Eid week, we wouldn't have got Sanju's dates to promote the film, since he's shooting out of town. By shifting the film ahead, we are not merely avoiding clashing with two major films, but will also have actors devoting ample time to promote and market our film." Wise move indeed!
