MUMBAI: The release of animated flick Hanuman Returns has now been postponed from 2 November to 21 December.
Percept Picture Company director distribution and IPR management Ashok Ahuja says, “Releasing Hanuman Returns on 2 November would give us just a one week run across theatres. We wanted to avoid the clash with biggies like Om Shanti Om and Saawariya, which will release on 9 November.”
He further adds, “At the same time it makes logical sense to release the movie during vacations only, hence 21 December was our next best choice.”
Now on 21 December, Adlabs’ Love Story 2050 and Aamir Khan Productions’ and PVR’s Tare Zameen Par, which is also targetting kids, will be releasing.
Percept now plans to reveal the look of Hanuman Returns in the month of October as opposed to September. Post this, the company will take a call on whether to sell the film to another distributor, depending on the hype the film generates.
