Namaste England, Badhai Ho release advanced
Instead of the films opening on Friday as per the original schedule, the two producers have taken a joint decision to release their respective films a day ahead
Two big Hindi releases--Vipul Shah's Namaste England and Amit Sharma's Badhai Ho--have been given a last-minute early release. Instead of the films opening on Friday as per the original schedule, the two producers have taken a joint decision to release their respective films a day ahead, on Thursday.
Namaste England director Vipul Shah explains, "It was a very natural move. This year, Dussehra is being celebrated on both October 18 and October 19, so we decided to let the audience enjoy the film on both days." The decision was mutual, with both the producers equally excited about the change.
Badhai Ho is a 'naughty comedy' about the embarrassment faced by a family when the matriarch becomes pregnant at an age when she is eligible for grandmotherly joys. Ayushmann Khurrana, now identified with quirky comedies and fresh on the heels of the success of his last release Andhadhun, plays the lead.
Namaste England is the follow-up to the 2007 hit Namastey London, with Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra taking the place of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
