Sanjay Leela Bhansali's eagerly awaited romantic opus Sawariya featuring the most eagerly awaited pair of the year Ranbir Raj Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, had been scheduled for a 2007 Diwali release from some months ago.
But now the film may be held over by a couple of weeks. According to those close to the production, the meticulous movie maker doesn't want to take any chances with creating the most perfect young love story, even if it means delaying the film by a week or more.
But what about the coveted Diwali release?
"Bhansali doesn't care about that. For him making Sawariya as flawless as his earlier works, and at the same time moving many steps ahead is more important. He won't compromise with a single frame just to get into the theatres on time," says a source close to the director.
Members of Sony Pictures International who are releasing the film were down in Mumbai to see some portions of Sawariya. They were stunned by what they saw.
The international company intends to give the film the kind of worldwide release never given to a Hindi film before.
Besides the offspring's of Rishi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, Sawariya stars veteran actresses Zohra Sehgal, Achala Sachdev and Begum Para making a comeback after 30 years. Salman Khan and Rani Mukherjee also play pivotal roles.
The eagerly awaited music of Sawariya by composer Pyarelal's nephew Monty Sharma releases in September on T Series Label.
