Mumbai: Producer Ekta Kapoor has postponed the release date of her most ambitious project Shootout at Wadala. Sanjay Gupta directed movie was earlier scheduled to release on December 7. But the TV and film producer says she delayed its release in a bid to avoid its Box Office clash with Aamir Khan's Talaash. Now, she wants her movie to hit the screens in 2013.
Aamir Khan's upcoming movie Talaash is one of the most-awaited Bollywood movies of the year 2012. The release of the film has been delayed due to Mr Perfectionist's debut TV show Satyameva Jayate. Now, it is slated to hit the screens across the globe on November 30. Talaash is next biggest outing of Aamir, after the huge success of 3 Idiots and his fans are desperately waiting to watch it.
So Ekta Kapoor does not want to compete with this big-ticket movie Talaash. Talking to PTI, the producer said, "As Talaash is releasing on November 30, how could we release our film that time. I don't want to compete with him...absolutely not. How can we decide to take on the mammoth Aamir Khan?"
Shootout at Wadala is a sequel to the 2007 film Shootout at Lokhandwala, in which Sonu Sood plays the role of the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, John Abraham plays gangster Manya Surve, while Anil Kapoor plays ACP Isaque Bagwan. The film also stars Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor and Ronit Roy.
On the other hand, Talaash, which is directed by Reema Kagti, features Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee in the lead roles. It was earlier scheduled to release in January this year, which got postponed till June and then subsequently for November 30.
