Solo release for Marjaavaan as John Abraham pushes Pagalpanti
Produced by Nikkhil Advani, Marjaavaan stars Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet.
John Abraham has deferred the release of his film, Pagalpanti, to allow a solo release window for Milap Zaveri’s Marjaavaan. Produced by Nikkhil Advani, Marjaavaan stars Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet. Marjaavaan will now be released on November 8 and enjoy a clear two-week run.
“Marjaavaan will benefit from a solo window and Bhushan (Kumar, producer) agreed with me,” John said in a statement. “Milap is a grounded boy and wonderful writer, while Nikkhil is a good, solid man for whom friendship is non-negotiable. I have worked with directors who have moved on, but Nikkhil understands loyalty and will work with you irrespective of how a film fares. It’s important for all of us that Marjaavaan sets the box office on fire.”
The new release date of Pagalpanti is yet to be announced. The film is a comedy directed by Anees Bazmee and also stars Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz, Arshad Warsi, and others.
John is set to reunite with Milap on Satyameva Jayate 2 and with Nikkhil on 1911.
