Bollywood has very few actors, who claim to be good friends. Sanjay
Dutt and Ajay Devgn can be counted as one of them. Dutt has proved
his friendship for Ajay many times. This time again Sanju has
extended his hand to help Devgn. Sanjay has reportedly changed the
release date of his next movie Knockout only to avoid
clash with Ajay Devgn"s next release Aakrosh.
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
Hope these two friends bond remains intact and strong.
