Hindi film industry’s release domino is changing everyday and now it’s the turn of Luv Ranjan’s Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety to shift it’s release date from 9 February to 23 February. The cause of this change is the shifted release date of Padman and the eventual cause is the release of much awaited Padmaavat. Padmaavat was suppose to release on 1 December 2017 but the release date go shifted to 25 January due to violent and radical protests against the film as they are going on even now. Padman and Aiyaary have agreed to clash on 25 January 2018.
In the recent turn of events, Aiyaary shifted it’s release date to 9 February in order to save itself from the wrath of Padmaavat. Due to which Anushka Sharma’s Pari shifted to 2 March as it did not want to clash with both Aiyaary and Sonu Ke Titu Ke Sweety. As of yet Pari is again clashing with 2 big films by the name of Parmanu which stars John Abraham and Drive starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez. Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety was alright till it was clashing with Aiyaary but as soon as superstar Akshay Kumar came into the race, it was a wise decision to postpone the film.
Akshay Kumar is not making any film which is earning less than 120 crores on box office and Neeraj pandey of Aiyaary has seen hundreds of crores on box office over a period of his eight films. Padman is much awaited by the audience and if the opinion is good then this film will meet the fate of Toilet Ek Prem Katha and earn about 125 crores which is a consistent Akshay Kumar figure. Aiyaary will bank at least 70-80 crores if it is good and that would have left no scope for Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety to earn more than 30 crores or so which is not nearly enough to generate profits.
