The release date of Abhishek Pathak’s Ujda Chaman has been advanced to November 1. The film, which stars Sunny Singh as a young man suffering from premature balding, was set to arrive on November 8. However, in light of the box-office clash with Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bala — which is based on a similar subject and is slated for release on November 7 — the makers of Ujda Chaman have chosen an earlier window.
Ujda Chaman is an official remake of the 2017 Kannada film Ondu Motteya Kathe. On Wednesday, director Abhishek Pathak filed a petition in the Supreme Court to stall the release of Bala. In his petition, Abhishek has alleged copyright infringement and demanded the similarities between the two films be resolved before Bala’s release on November 7. The filmmaker had previously moved the Bombay High Court over the matter.
Ujda Chaman also stars Manvi Gagroo, Saurabh Shukla, Karishma Sharma and Aishwarya Sakhuja. The film is produced by Panorama Studios.
