People just can't stop talking about hot director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's new offering Saawariya. Speculations are rife that it may not be able to release as scheduled on 9th November during Diwali season. The news is doing the rounds that the director is not in the mood to wrap it up in haste just for the sake of meeting deadline. But the truth is that its makers are hell-bent on releasing it on the scheduled date.
Sony Pictures, which is producing this film has confirmed that it would make it to the theatres on time.
Uday Singh, who heads Sony Pictures in India has rubbished off the rumours of the film's postponement. "It's completely untrue. Saawariya is definitely arriving on 9th November. We've locked the date. There's no shifting forward.," said Uday Singh. The film will also be dubbed into many foreign languages. "See, it all depends on the Country Manager. It's not right for me to comment on it. It's their (Country Manager) decision entirely," said Uday.
However, he sounded philosophical when it came to the number of prints it would have. "Like water finds its own level, similarly the content finds its own level. We'll decide on the prints at the time of release. It's too early to talk about it. What's confirmed, however, is 9th November," he said.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali introduces two star children - actor Rishi Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor's daughter Sonam Kapoor through this films. It is a romantic flick about innocent love. Actress Rani Mukherjee plays a vital role and Salman Khan also makes a special appearance. Monty Singh is the music director and Ganesh Hegde is the choreographer.
