Delhi 47 KM maker not worried about clash with Dhadak
Delhi 47 KM was earlier scheduled for release on July 6, but due to technical reasons, the release was pushed to July 20
Shadab Khan's Delhi 47 KM is scheduled for release on July 20, the same day as Dharma Productions' much awaited film Dhadak. The latter, a Hindi remake of the Marathi hit Sairat, marks the Bollywood debut of Shahid Kapoor's step-brother Ishaan Khatter and Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor.
Asked if he is concerned about the box-office collection of his film, Shadab says, "We are not feeling any kind of pressure about Dhadak clashing with our film because both films are completely different from each other. Dhadak is a love story which is meant for masses. On the other hand, Delhi 47 KM is for class and mass both as the audience has matured."
He adds that his film is based on a real and serious topic. "I think the intellectual audience will connect with our film. We have made a good film and we are confident that it will do good business at the box office."
Delhi 47 KM was earlier scheduled for release on July 6, but due to technical reasons, the release was pushed to July 20.
The film is being described as a story of a bunch of losers who are driven into helplessness due to the various flaws of the system, and how it makes a mother struggle to get her child educated. It is produced by Shadab Khan, along with Jigar Rawal, Sachin Saxena and Rajneesh Dubey, and presented by CineCloud Films and Asma Ali Shaikh.
