MUMBAI: UTV Motion Pictures’ Kaminey, directed by Vishal Bharadwaj, is slated to release on 5 June.
Kaminey will be the first film to release post the IPL championship, which conclude on 29 May. With most filmmakers shying away from releasing their films during the IPL season, Kaminey has grabbed the first Friday, post the championship.
The publicist of the film confirms, "The release date for Kaminey has been locked for 5 June. That’s the way Vishal Bharadwaj, the director and producer of the film likes to operate. Everything is in place and we have been able to follow all schedules, be it during shooting and or during post production which is going on now."
The month of March is a not a lucrative time to release films as exams hold centre stage. And now with the IPL matches starting from the second week of April, people in India will hardly be going to the theatres to see films.Kaminey has Shahid Kapur and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles.
