According to a source, “Priyadarshan"s movie Aakrosh and Mani Shankar"s Knockout were scheduled to release on October 1, 2010. But as Ajay and Sanjay are very close friends, it was decided to postpone the release of Knockout to either October 8 or 15. Sohail Maklai, the producer of Knockout, also happens to be a close friend of Ajay. When he observed that both the movies have same release date, he called up Sanjay to inform this. On hearing this, Sanjay called up Ajay in no time to sort out the matter".
The matter was solved in just few minutes. Confirming the news, Sohail said, “It"s true that we mutually decided to postpone the release of Knockout by one or two weeks".
He added, “I called up Sanjay, who is in South Africa now. He then took Ajay on conference. We decided mutually that we should not hamper each other"s business by releasing the two films on the same day. Our director Mani Shankar is finalizing the edit in Mumbai so we have enough time to re-schedule the date and then promote it".
Hope these two friends bond remains intact and strong.
